  • Strong verbal communication skills.
  • Having worked in sustainability/climate change is a plus. Caring deeply for the environment is a must.
  • You are calm and focused under pressure and re-orient quickly in changing environments.
  • You take complete ownership of your tasks from start to finish. When you don\’t fully understand something, you take the opportunity to learn and grow.
  • You consider work-life balance essential to long-term happiness and productivity.
