EWB Sweden is now reaching out to persons interested in taking on the challenge of leading the climatic and environmental sustainability activities in the sustainability quality management of EWB Sweden. Maybe you are a student in the later part of your studies in a related field, a sustainability manager in an organization, and/or have substantial experience of managing activities towards reaching improved climatic and/or environmental sustainability?

The activity field is broad and will involve management of the climatic and environmental sustainability aspect in the overall management of the organization, from managing and developing sustainability criteria for staff to analysis and guidance in our activity focus on climatic and environmental sustainability in international projects carried out by EWB Sweden. You will lead the tasks within a group of colleagues from a newly found Sustainability Council in EWB Sweden in cooperation with a group of collaborators with expertise in e.g. social issues and risk management.

To succeed in the mission, you need to be driven, independent, and responsible. You are good at collaborating and creating good relationships both internally and externally. We assume you share EWB Sweden values and we value if you have worked with development, sustainability, and/or climate and environmental issues before.

If YES, you are most likely the person we search for!
