Exciting news for those looking on the job market for employment in the environmental field; The ClimateTrust, a non-profit organization based out of Portland, Oregon, has two openings, one for “Project Analyst”, and the other for a “Senior Project Analyst”. Let’s get right into it.
The Project Analyst postion, as per the statement released by the organization, “is responsible for providing analytical expertise to support The Climate Trust’s project acquisition efforts primarily in the forestry sector, climate services initiatives, and management of our 20 plus greenhouse gas mitigation project portfolio. The position requires an individual with strong technical and analytical capabilities, interpersonal skills, and project evaluation expertise.”
I could describe some of the major responsibilities, or you could take it from the horses mouth. You can find the entire job posting by clicking on this link. Just a warning to college students reading this, however: The Climate Trust is looking for at least 2 years professional experience in the field or a master’s degree.
Despite the name, the position of “Senior Project Analyst” is not just a older Project Analyst. No, this position “will be responsible for expanding The Climate Trust’s Northwest ‘climate friendly’ agricultural initiatives (soil carbon sequestration, biogas production, nutrient management). The position requires an individual with strong proposal, technical and analytical capabilities, interpersonal skills, and project evaluation expertise. This is a highly technical position and individuals with a strong scientific background are encouraged to apply.”
Both positions are listed as being open until filled, so if you feel as though you have the qualifications, go for it, what’s the worst that can happen? I wish the best of luck to all of you.
