GCF recruitment activities in the context of COVID-19
GCF recognises that the COVID-19 outbreak is serious and is taking measures to reduce the risk of infection whilst ensuring the continuity of its operations.
We are continuing our recruitment activities, but as part of these measures we are not holding any on-site interviews in the Republic of Korea at present. Virtual interviews continue to take place.
We have moved to allow many staff to work remotely and newly appointed staff, consultants, and interns will not be asked to report to our headquarters in Songdo at present.
At the Green Climate Fund, we are driven by the impact of climate change on our home planet. We strive to help countries shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development. In support of this mission, the Fund is hiring highly qualified individuals who are eager to be part of a start-up in international climate finance that offers stimulating challenges. We seek strategic thinkers who can communicate ideas effectively and thrive in a fast-paced environment.
GCF values diversity and encourages applications from people of all backgrounds, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, religion, disability, or similar other attributes. If you are motivated by our mandate and believe your profile could be of value to the Fund, consult the current opportunities below and on the GCF Job Portal.
GCF regularly seeks highly-qualified professionals in all areas of its work. Current list of vacancies are regularly listed on the GCF Job Portal.
On July 1, the Green Climate Fund (GCF) launched its 2020 GCF Internship Programme. The 2020 summer cohort brings together 29 talented individuals from diverse backgrounds and nationalities, including many from developing countries – which GCF is mandated to serve. The interns will participate in a two-week virtual onboarding programme to gain a holistic overview of the GCF's mission and mandate. The programme includes notable guest speakers representing GCF’s partners and other organisations such as UNEP, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and Veritas Global. The new cohort of interns will have the opportunity to leave their knowledge footprint through knowledge production in different operational areas within GCF.
The application period for internships that start in January 2021 will open in late August.
The Green Climate Fund internship programme provides a unique learning opportunity for students and recent graduates from diverse academic backgrounds. We encourage qualified women and men with diverse professional, academic, and cultural backgrounds to apply, and invite applications from nationals of developing countries in particular. The programme is designed for talented and motivated individuals skilled in areas relevant to GCF's operations. The programme allows selected candidates to gain insight into the work of the Fund and provides assistance and training in various professional fields in a multicultural environment. For inquiries about GCF's internship programme, please contact the GCF Human Resources Team.
