The UK Centre for Greening Finance and Investment (CGFI) is a national centre, established by UK Research and Innovation in 2021, to accelerate the adoption and use of climate and environmental data and analytics by financial institutions internationally. This was one of the key recommendations made by the UK Green Finance Taskforce in 2018 and contained in the UK Green Finance Strategy in 2019. It will unlock opportunities for the UK to lead internationally in greening finance and financing green.
The Centre Manager will play a central role in the set-up, operationalisation and management of the Centre, working closely with the Director and Deputy Director.

You will also manage the secretariat to the Centre’s governance and advisory boards and coordinate with Oxford research services, finance, administration and HR as required to ensure the smooth operations of the Centre and its research projects.

You will have a strong track record in project management, preferably in a research context, including communications, events, stakeholder engagement and policy engagement.
