Global Canopy is a data-driven not for profit delivering real transparency and accountability for market impacts on nature and people. Our special focus is on ending deforestation – an essential step in achieving urgent global goals on climate, nature and human rights.

We are looking to appoint a Nature case writer within Global Canopy’s education and learning team.

Education is critical to GC’s goal to drive uptake of nature-related risk management practices in financial, business and policymaking communities in both emerging and developed markets; and to help strengthen capacity among civil society to help hold powerful actors to account.

Case studies and use cases are an important part of capacity building through education and learning, helping market participants develop an understanding of key nature concepts in the context of real-life scenarios, and support the development of critical analysis, problem-solving, decision-making, and implementation in relation to nature-related issues and nature-related finance.

To be successful in this role, these are the things that will matter the most: 

  • Strong writing and research skills, as well as excellent analytical, communications, and interviewing skills.
  • An ability to navigate multi-stakeholder projects with emotional intelligence
  • Communication skills that enable engagement with senior professionals across a range of sectors from policy to finance on potentially complex and sensitive issues
  • Knowledge and experience of either nature-related finance and/or global trade and supply chains gained ideally either working with or within the private sector

Essential behavioural competencies:

  • Motivation to work in an organisation that is purpose-led, with a deep commitment to the values and mission of Global Canopy
  • Ability to work collaboratively and independently while establishing strong working relationships and taking direction from one or more project leaders
  • Ability to give and receive feedback, with a willingness to reflect and integrate feedback
  • A strong appreciation of the value of connected content, conceptualizing case studies as a piece of a the learner journey
  • An eye for detail and technical accuracy

At Global Canopy, we value diversity and inclusion. You can read our diversity statement on our website. We encourage applications from all backgrounds and are committed to having a team with a diverse set of skills, experiences and abilities. We are committed to reducing systemic barriers in our recruitment processes. 

Global Canopy works on issues of tropical deforestation. We are particularly interested in strengthening our team to include those with a background from forest regions such as Latin America and South East Asia. We welcome applications from people from these regions.

Global Canopy is an inclusive employer and accommodations will be made to allow anyone who requires additional support to apply for this role. Please get in touch with us if you require any additional support.
