Your typical week

It’s Monday morning and you’re coming back to the office all refreshed from a great week-end. The week starts with our team meeting, where everyone reflects on the learnings of the past week and shares intentions for the coming one. This creates a space for alignment, awareness and enthusiasm before stepping into the new week and allows everyone to get the latest updates from different departments while hearing about the organization’s growth.

During the week, you can expect a combination of client-facing and managerial tasks. You are responsible for coordinating climate change-related client projects from beginning to end, all while guiding a young and growing team of enthusiastic climate analysts and consultants to support you along the way. Every week is different, however, and you will also be involved in other activities such as hosting webinars, working with Universities, writing and publishing articles, hosting internal lunch and learn sessions, and helping to land new clients. All of this with a strong emphasis on good work life balance of course.

The week closes off on Friday 5pm with our gratitude award. This is the time to reflect on the successes and challenges of the week and most importantly to share what we’re grateful for. After this, our team is always keen to stay longer and enjoy some precious bonding time over beer, wine, and ginger beer – on the house.
