3Keel LLP ( is a specialist sustainability consultancy with a mission to work with others to create a better future for people and the environment. We do this through ideas, evidence, and by bringing people together.  We are now looking for a consultant with relevant experience to help us to take the business to the next stage of development.

3Keel is rapidly developing our sustainable commodities practice area, so would particularly welcome applicants with an understanding of the social and environmental issues in the production and supply chains of key soft commodities including soy, palm oil, timber, pulp and paper, cocoa and cotton. We will recruit either a Consultant or Senior Consultant depending on the experience of the successful candidate - and are happy to consider full or part time working arrangements.

Although some experience working in industry, as a consultant, or with an NGO is desirable, we are more interested in finding someone who has a passion for finding solutions to complex sustainability problems.

Essential skills: rapid research and distillation of complex topics; clear and engaging writing style; excellent verbal communication; effective project management; and proficiency in using Excel.

Other skills of interest (but not essential) include: business-level proficiency in foreign languages; data visualisation; software programming; and GIS capabilities. For the senior consultant, experience of managing client relationships and a successful track record in business development is preferred.

Salary: Consultant: £24,000 - £30,000 pro rata, plus bonus; Senior Consultant: £28,000 - £45,000 pro rata, plus bonus

There will be a three-stage recruitment process:

  1. CV with covering letter (6th May deadline)
  2. Interview (by mid-May)
  3. Practical exercise for preferred candidates (mid-May)
