Global Energy Monitor is seeking a Human Resources Specialist (Training & Development) who will support multiple critical functions essential to GEM’s day-to-day work. Reporting to GEM’s Human Resources Manager, the Human Resources Specialist will primarily be responsible for designing and implementing training programs to help our staff develop the skills they need to excel in their roles. The Human Resources Specialist will also provide support around employee engagement and new employee onboarding in addition to providing general administrative support for all HR functions.

The Challenge

According to the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC), we have less than a decade to make massive and unprecedented changes in the global economy to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. To meet that challenge, Global Energy Monitor is creating trackers and other tools to provide detailed information on energy facilities, sponsors, and financing. 

About Global Energy Monitor

Global Energy Monitor (GEM) is a network of researchers developing information for the worldwide climate and clean energy movement. Since the organization’s founding in 2007, GEM’s research has become an essential tool for activists, journalists, policymakers, and scientists. GEM’s data and reports are used and cited by organizations ranging from Greenpeace to The Wall Street Journal. GEM’s information is used by Bloomberg Terminals, the International Energy Agency, the IPCC, Climate Analytics, Carbon Tracker Initiative, and hundreds of others.
