Job Details

This position will report to the Head of Policy and will play a key role in researching and developing some of the Aldersgate Group’s evolving policy positions and advocating for ambitious, evidence-based and business minded climate and environmental policies. The work of the Policy Principal will span multiple areas of the Aldersgate Group’s policy agenda, with an important focus on green finance policy (covering areas such as the role of public finance and climate and environmental reporting and disclosure). In particular, the Policy Principal will deputise for the Executive Director or Head of Policy in the Group’s membership of the Green Technical Advisory Group (which advises the Government on the development of a UK Green Taxonomy) and the Transition Plans Taskforce (which advises the Government on the creation of a transition plans standard).

We would therefore welcome applicants with a broad understanding of the climate and environmental policy agenda, a good knowledge of green finance and an understanding of macroeconomics.

The successful candidate will join a Secretariat of nine employees and contribute to the Aldersgate Group’s policy work, with a primary (but not exclusive) focus on green finance policy. The Policy Principal will be line managed by the Head of Policy and will support them in maintaining and implementing an impactful policy work programme for the Aldersgate Group.
