As Environment Project Manager for the Bretton Woods Project, you will use your experience of supporting civil society advocacy and excellent communications skills and knowledge of development and environment issues to challenge the power of the World Bank and IMF, open space for civil society, and promote alternative approaches.

The Bretton Woods Project is a watchdog and an advocate. The Project develops and maintains an information and evidence base that contributes to critical voices that seek to influence international financial institutions so they support development policies that are gender transformative, equitable, environmentally sustainable and consistent with international human rights norms.

As the Project Manager responsible for the Project’s environment portfolio, you will manage the Project’s work on the environmental impacts of World Bank policies and projects. Day-to-day you will be involved in strategic planning, strengthening our network and monitoring the impact of international and UK institutions on the World Bank. You will also develop an understanding of the role of the World Bank and IMF within the broader international financial landscape.

Whether directing and conducting research/analysis and documenting relevant policy issues or conducting advocacy at all levels and preparing accessible articles/briefings, you will play a key role in the success of the Project. As part of a small and ambitious team, you will also contribute to the Project’s daily operations and will flexibly adapt to changing demands as required.

With at least a university degree or with equivalent professional experience, you will have developed an in-depth understanding of development and environment issues. With experience working with civil society and of the workings of IFIs, you must have good research skills as well as the ability to produce communications for varying audiences. Having conducted advocacy with government or international institutions at senior levels, you will be comfortable developing advocacy strategies and have the ability to develop sound policy positions.
