SEI is an independent international research institute, formally established in 1989 by the Swedish Government, and engaged in environment and development issues at local, national, regional and global policy.
Under the guidance of your line manager, you will be responsible for collecting and compiling background information to be used in project reporting and management. You will be closely working with SEI Finance Manager in the preparation of large research grant applications. You will also assist SEI’s Policy Director with assessing SEI’s approaches to policy engagement.
To complete the above tasks, you will be educated to degree level (or have equivalent experience), preferably in a subject related to environmental science and/or policy. You will have a good appreciation of how to successfully co-ordinate and administer research projects (from inception to completion, including aspects of financial administration). You will also be able to manage large datasets (for example in MS Excel), and conduct literature searches. You will have excellent communication skills and be able to disseminate information to colleagues in a variety of formats, including those suitable for formal reporting requirements.
