About the Role – Clean Energy Access Coordinator

As a Coordinator on the CEA Team, you will help us plan and execute our global portfolio of market development programs and projects in countries throughout Africa, Southeast Asia, and the rest of the world. 

The Coordinator will be based in CLASP’s Washington office and will work as part of a dynamic international team along with team members in Africa and South Asia, conducting critical administrative and programmatic tasks and ensuring the broader program team is set up to develop and execute programmatic and organizational objectives successfully.

 

Your responsibilities will include 

  • Help maintain and improve program infrastructure: Manage day-to-day activities to keep our team organized (e.g., team meetings), improve the effectiveness of internal processes, and track program impacts. 
  • Coordinate! Collaborate! Repeat! Collaborate with global team members, partners, stakeholders, and contractors on the scoping, design, and execution of a complex, fast-moving project portfolio.
  • Support program outreach, stakeholder engagement, and reporting: Help CLASP build support among key constituents – including industry leaders, academic institutions, trade associations, government decision-makers, and donor organizations – by conducting a variety of outreach and stakeholder engagement activities.
  • Share our story: Contribute to CLASP, EforA, and VeraSol newsletters, website updates, social media, and other external communications in collaboration with the Communications Team.
  • Liaise with CLASP’s operations team: Liaise with the Finance and Operations Team and CEA Team members on tasks that require input or approval from the operations team (e.g. RFPs, proposals, contracts, invoices, payments, etc.)
  • Stay nimble and collaborative, and keep the big picture in mind: Contribute to and conduct programmatic work in support of EforA and VeraSol programs, including research, data management, product testing, and shipping logistics, etc.

Who you are

  • An Effective Collaborator. You’ve successfully worked across cultural lines on a dispersed team, and you have the ability to operate in complex situations. You can easily gain trust from team members and are known for supporting them to ensure they are set up for success. You’re not afraid to ask questions.
  • Flexible. You can manage a diverse set of team needs and aren't afraid to step outside your job description or comfort zone to help the team reach its goals. You're comfortable with shifting schedules and don't expect every day to go "as planned."
  • A Humble Teammate. Nothing is beneath or above you. You are quick to always lend a hand or two! You are able to earn influence without authority and naturally seek to support both small projects or large strategic goals.
  • An Abundant Thinker. You believe that we are living in a world of abundant resources and that the right team of partners can make improbable things happen. You bring relentless curiosity and creativity to every task, project, and engagement.
  • Mission-oriented. You believe in the mission of CLASP and are passionate about climate change, energy efficiency, and creating a more sustainable world. 

 

What you’ll need

  • 0-3 years of overall professional experience (we are background agnostic and are excited by candidates with unique and different work histories).
  • Ability to handle multiple deadlines and complete assignments with minimal supervision in a fast-paced workplace.
  • Impeccable organization; you are highly detail-oriented, and someone who gets a real sense of satisfaction from producing polished work and managing smooth and orderly processes.
  • A commitment to diversity and inclusion. You're always asking: "whose voice is not at the table?" You have experience working with diverse teams and successfully navigating cross-cultural communication in both local and global contexts, and you deeply value creating a workplace that is supportive of difference. 

 

Why this role is compelling

You will be exposed to an unusually wide range of people and issues in the climate and energy sectors, as well as the internal infrastructure and operations of a global NGO.

A successful candidate will develop and grow a broad set of professional skills, honing them to the level of excellence in a demanding and fast-paced environment. You will work with, learn from, and grow alongside a high-performing and diverse team in which everyone is committed to the development of themselves and others.

This role is intended to serve as a professional development path for you. There is high potential for the role to evolve within two to three years based on the particular strengths that you bring to the team, making this an invaluable opportunity to launch your career in the climate sector. Several current Associates and Managers at CLASP started in the Coodinator role.
