Analyst for Climate, Transport Policy

13.07.2016

Transport & Environment (T&E), Europe’s principal environmental group campaigning for more sustainable transport in the EU, is currently seeking a highly motivated and proactive individual in the area of transport data analysis. This is a new role on T&E’s freight and climate team with a specific focus on providing ad hoc analytical support to the whole team.

The position requires a person with strong analytical and research skills, the ability to think strategically, as well as effective communications skills. The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to grasp technical issues, analyse different policy scenarios (especially energy and climate scenarios by the European Commission) and translate them into simple and persuasive policy messages.

We offer the chance to help shape policies with huge implications for people and the environment in Europe and across the globe, as well as a competitive salary with a substantial package of benefits.

The role will involve:

  • Developing T&E’s in-house modelling capabilities and performing scientifically sound research and analysis, including producing original material and advocacy materials based on robust evidence and argumentation in order to reduce the climate impact of the transport sector.

  • The ability to build and maintain good contact with policy-makers, researchers and our network working on similar areas of work.

  • Contributing to a multi-year campaign to reduce climate emissions from the transport sector within the post-2020 EU policy framework for climate and energy, in files as important as the revision of the effort sharing decision, efficiency standards for cars, vans and trucks, and biofuel policy.

The successful candidate should meet the following criteria:

  • Have strong analytical skills, an excellent knowledge of Excel (experience in modelling, projections and scenarios of energy systems is a big plus)

  • Strong interpersonal skills as well as good communication and presentation skills

  • The ability to write in English fluently, accurately and concisely

  • A minimum of three years' relevant professional experience working on technical issues in the environmental or energy sectors, a research institution or similar

  • The confidence to think and act with initiative and to independently identify research opportunities that would clearly support T&E’s mission

  • The capacity to creatively find solutions to complex quantitative research questions where there is an apparent lack of data

  • The ability to critically analyse documents, models and projects performed by others, extracting main conclusions, research assumptions and political implications

  • Project management experience and an ability to deliver to tight deadlines and to successfully follow projects performed by third parties (mostly consultants)

The successful candidate would ideally have:

  • Good knowledge of transport and emissions reports

  • Experience with a specific transport modelling tool

  • A personal commitment to sustainable transport and the aims of T&E

  • The ability to speak at least one other EU language fluently

This is a full-time position based in Brussels. A more flexible working schedule can be discussed.

To apply, please complete the attached application form and send it together with a copy of your CV to vacancy@transportenvironment.org, clearly demonstrating how you meet the essential criteria. The email subject line should state Analyst for Climate and Transport Policy.

The closing date for applications is 5 August 2016. First-round interviews are scheduled to be held early September in Brussels or by telephone. A second round of interviews will follow shortly after. The successful candidate will be expected to start as soon as possible.

T&E anticipates a high number of applications and only shortlisted candidates for the first round of interviews will be contacted.
