Role: part-time, fixed term for 1 year (subject to funding)
Salary: €70,000 for 1 year, paid monthly
Established in 2021, Opportunity Green is a fast-growing not-for-profit organisation that helps to identify and unlock opportunities to tackle climate change. We build ambitious coalitions, support climate vulnerable countries in international negotiations and find innovative legal pathways to emissions reductions. We are now looking for a Brussels-based consultant to work in our ambitious coalitions team.
Opportunity Green founded the Skies and Seas Hydrogen-fuels Accelerator – SASHA for short – coalition as part of our ambitious coalitions workstream. We unify the aviation and shipping industries to highlight the vital role of green hydrogen and direct air capture in their decarbonisation.
As an external consultant, you will report to the SASHA team and CEO and report on your deliverables each month.
We are looking for someone who also has a strong interest and proven experience in environmental and energy consulting, so you will have a keen eye for policy intervention and ability to build strong stakeholder relationships.
This is a wide-ranging and independent role for someone who wants to work in climate and is happy to turn their hand to many different tasks without supervision. Our SASHA team is looking to increase presence in Brussels, especially with policymakers, MEPs and representatives from the shipping and aviation industries. You will therefore need to be proactive, confident and have the skills to create relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders.
Diversity and inclusion are important principles at OG. We believe that diversity and inclusion make teams stronger and more effective. We are committed to fair and equitable employment practices and we are striving to ensure that a variety of voices and experiences are included in our organisation. Our commitment to diversity and our parental leave policy are available to view on our website, here.
We will consider all applicants who meet most or all of the essential competencies regardless of their identity or background. That said, we know that diverse candidates may be reluctant to apply for jobs where they don’t meet 100% of the criteria outlined in the job description. We encourage anyone to apply who can demonstrate the variety of skills and experiences relevant to meeting the requirements of this role.
We recognise that many diverse experiences and perspectives are not represented in our current workforce, and are seriously underrepresented across the non-profit sector in general, and as such, we particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities, people of colour, people from marginalised backgrounds, and members of the LGBTQIA+ communities. We will use positive action under the Equality Act 2010 to appoint from these groups if two candidates are equally qualified.
Please follow the instructions by clicking the apply button.

The closing date for applications is Monday 2 October 2023 at 09:00am CET. Unfortunately, due to the expected volume of applications, you will only receive a response if you are selected for an interview.
Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an online interview to discuss their experience and suitability for the position. After this, candidates that are most suitable for the vacancy will be invited for second interview, in person, for which there may also be a short task.
