Vacancy: Manager

Terranomics is a UK-based consultancy working internationally with local and global financial systems to support sustainable land use, conservation and climate change solutions. The co-founders have spent the last 20 years working on public and private sector approaches to environmental challenges. Since Terranomics was established in 2016, we have delivered an array of impactful projects for some of the world’s leading financial institutions, impact investors, UN agencies, large NGOs and corporations. 

The services Terranomics specialise in are the following:

• Sustainable land-use investment structuring (including carbon and nature-based solutions)

• Designing blended finance programmes for coastal and marine projects

• Supporting green and blue business growth, including designing and operating incubators and accelerators

• Finance sector analysis

• Measurement, impact and evaluation

• Developing project proposals and concept notes for multilateral funds and agencies

Some examples of projects we are currently working on include: 

• Help for companies embedding ‘nature positive’ into their sustainability strategies

• Project origination and development support for conservation-focused ‘bankable’ projects and accelerators/incubators in the UK, Americas, Asia and Africa.

• Support to organisations with concept notes and proposals for entities such as the Global Fund for Coral Reefs, the Green Climate Fund and the Global Environment Facility

• Support tools and advice for conservation-focused entities to access private investment and to engage mainstream capital markets

The role

Terranomics has a growing portfolio of exciting global client assignments in the areas outlined above. We are seeking a Manager to join the team in further developing existing and new business areas for the company. Primary responsibilities will include:

• Managing the delivery of client consulting assignments – this will involve getting ’hands-on’ with conducting research, designing project strategies, project managing, interviewing influential stakeholders, facilitating workshops and meetings, report writing, and presenting findings;

• Leading and supporting business development activities, including writing proposals for tender processes, developing budgets and timelines for work delivery and liaising with (prospective) clients; 

• Overseeing and supporting the development of more junior team members; and contributing to the strategic direction of the company and strengthening our operations and organisational development.

This is an excellent opportunity to take a management position, and in the medium term, a leadership position in a growing consultancy with a significant opportunity for career development in an environment where individual creativity and entrepreneurship are strongly encouraged. 

We are a small team currently but have a global footprint of diverse projects greater than most consultancies of our size. A key piece of our business strategy is to ensure we pursue projects with demonstrable positive impact. You will be a part of helping shape and deliver this ‘impact first’ philosophy.  

The role will be full time and the location is flexible. The Terranomics team is currently largely based across the UK, though remote candidates will also be considered within US or European time zones. Our projects offer opportunities for travel to exciting client locations and exposure to diverse operating environments.
