Where you fit in

With valuable input from strategic partners, we address two major global development challenges: access to energy and affordable transport. We act like an investor in taking a hands-on, “more than money” approach, nurturing enterprise-based, scalable solutions which have the power to relieve poverty and hardship and protect the environment.

What we need from you

We’re keen to hear from men and women with experience of creating and managing contracts, and implementing working practices and processes. We’ll also expect you to have a basic understanding of the legal concepts underpinning contract law. Along with some experience of database administration and good Microsoft Excel skills.

Beyond that, it’s your personal skills that will make the difference. You’ll excel at adapting your working style to suit a range of people, ensuring their different needs are met. You’ll thrive as part of a team, and supporting colleagues, yet be equally comfortable nurturing relationships with legal advisors and external donors.

In return, we’ll give you all the support you need to do what you do best.
