Calling all sustainability nerds with private/consulting sector experience

We are a young and growing company that has quickly gained a firm footing in the Nordic market for sustainability consulting, working with private sector clients as well as third sector organisations (foundations, research institutions, international organisations, etc.)

We are seeing our pipeline growing rapidly and we need new great colleagues working primarily on corporate projects. We are looking for profiles for roles from consultant (with a minimum of two years relevant experience) to senior manager.

Do you want to work exclusively on sustainability projects in a company that is integrating a four-day work week? Reach out if you are a sustainability nerd with private sector, consulting, or international environmental NGO/think tank experience.

About Nordic Sustainability

Nordic Sustainability is a value-based consultancy firm working at the intersection of strategy and sustainability. Based on a deep understanding of the systemic changes necessary and the underlying science, our company’s purpose is to help public and private sector organisations make better decisions and transform their organisations towards true sustainable practices. It’s systemic change that we are working towards.

We believe that by working in accordance with the Nordic standards of work-life-balance, we become better consultants and colleagues, which is why we are currently implementing a four-day work week. We’re organised and we get our work done on time and on target. By creating a work environment centered around healthy decision-making, we believe that we help our clients make better decisions. That’s how we understand professionalism.

Your responsibilities

• We expect you to be working primarily with larger private companies to support their work in developing strategies focused on integrating sustainability into the core of the business
• We expect you to be able to independently participate in projects consisting of both internal team members, client project group, and external stakeholders
• We expect you to be able to drive business development towards existing and new clients

Your competencies

• You have sustainability related experience from a top tier consultancy, a large corporate, or a leading environmental think tank/NGO

• You have project management experience and are comfortable with driving projects independently and in teams
• You have excellent skills within the consultancy toolbox, e.g. data analysis (excel), presentations (PowerPoint), proposal writing, etc.
• You speak and write English at native or comparable level. Fluency in Danish is an asset, but not a requirement
• It is an asset if you have a specific area of expertise within corporate sustainability, which could be (but not limited to) carbon accounting, circular economy, supply chain management, ESG, etc.

Your mindset

• You live sustainability and seek to push the boundaries of what organisations and individuals can do to make an impact in order to advance our common societal transition
