Your professional network, industry reputation and public profile and track record of thought leadership will enable you to support the bank’s external engagement with regulators, central banks and governments, NGOs and the market. 

To be successful within this position you will have:

• Deep expertise on climate change and the energy transition including low-carbon technologies, decarbonisation pathways, regulatory and policy levers, carbon budgets, science-based targets, climate analytics, and both transition and physical climate risk.

• Experience working in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary environment and managing multiple stakeholders across large organizations.
