About the Role

Reporting to Opportunity Green’s Legal Director, you will be responsible for leading our new legal work on agriculture and land use, including strategic legal analysis and interventions. You will be undertaking initial legal research to identify and develop legal strategies for driving decarbonisation in the agriculture and land use sectors. You will then use your legal skills to lead the implementation of such strategies, with the support of the wider legal team.

You will be working at the cutting edge of climate law in new and emerging areas, and will help identify and develop strategic legal action ideas that aim to drive system change in these sectors. You will use your legal skills to think outside of the box and develop innovative legal pathways for change in these sectors, with a view to taking forward the most promising actions.

You will work closely with a wide range of NGOs across Europe to obtain technical and policy insight on your ideas to help you develop them into actionable concepts.

Our legal team is already achieving outsized impact with a great team spirit. We are looking for someone who is analytical and organised, but who is also a people person with great communication skills, a collaborative approach and a passion for fighting climate change. Opportunity Green is a growing organisation so you will also be involved in supporting other aspects of work, such as contributing to funding proposals, developing campaign strategy, providing legal input into communications, and taking part in our committees.

About the Organisation

Established in 2021, Opportunity Green is a fast-growing not-for-profit organisation that helps to identify and unlock opportunities to tackle climate change. We build ambitious coalitions, support climate vulnerable countries in international negotiations and find innovative legal pathways to fight climate change.
