Public Finance Analyst

Oil Change International is seeking an enthusiastic, organised, and detail-oriented Analyst with a commitment to social justice to join our Global Public Finance team. The Public Finance Analyst will collect and analyse data and write reports and briefings to support OCI’s work to end public finance for fossil fuels and increase government support for a just transition, energy access, and renewable energy. This includes data analysis and writing on topics including: 1) public energy finance, particularly for oil, gas and coal projects, from G20 countries and multilateral financial institutions; 2) energy access and distributed renewable energy finance, and 3) equity, climate, and development issues relating to fossil fuel production, particularly in Africa and Asia.

In this position, you will co-develop the public finance research agenda together with team members and will be OCI’s point person for public finance data collection, analysis, and report writing. Currently, our team is working on building on recent commitments from international public finance institutions to end their support for oil and gas by growing this group of ‘first movers’ and ensuring they shift this money — and more — to just climate solutions instead. You will work closely and collaboratively with the Global Public Finance team members, members of OCI’s research and communication teams, and with key partners in other civil society organisations. You will help maintain OCI’s Shift the Subsidies database tracking public finance transactions and use this data for research products to support campaign goals.

Senior Campaigner, Asia Program

Oil Change International is seeking a Senior Campaigner and strategist to help develop campaigns to pressure the Japanese government, Asian Development Bank and other targets to stop financing fossil fuels and to shift investment towards renewable energy.

The financing and buildout of new gas infrastructure in Asia poses one of the greatest challenges to averting the worst impacts of the climate crisis. Japanese public and private institutions, along with the Asian Development Bank, are pouring billions of dollars into the buildout of new gas power plants and import terminals in the region at a time when we should be ramping down fossil fuel use. Emissions from these projects threaten to take the world well beyond the Paris climate limits of 1.5°C of global warming.

Social movements and NGOs in countries across Asia are building campaigns to stop the development of new gas infrastructure projects. Partnering with civil society in key countries to develop high-profile gas infrastructure campaigns will be critical to pressure these institutions to stop financing gas projects. We are looking for an experienced strategist and campaigner to collaborate with partners to increase the profile of these campaigns internationally, build strong pressure on Japan and the ADB and help amplify the narrative that gas is dirty, expensive and undermines development.

The ideal candidate will have a proven ability to campaign successfully on climate, environmental and social justice issues: identifying strategic opportunities, engaging in diverse coalitions, using creative tactics, and inspiring others to join the effort. The Senior Campaigner will develop and execute effective advocacy and communications strategies at an international level in close coordination with partner organizations and our Asia program staff. If you are passionate about climate justice, adept in engaging with coalitions and partners, and have experience coordinating complex international campaigns, then this is the role for you!

Reports to: Asia Program Manager
Salary: Generous salary in line with experience. Initial one year contract with intention for long term renewal.
Application deadline: position will be open until filled.
