Deadline to Apply


VEIC seeks a Managing Consultant to oversee its engagement with Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) awardees as well as related lenders and prospective borrowers. The role will include managing relationships across awardees and multiple partners, including members of the Relay Network. The position will play a leadership role in pursuing business development opportunities related to the GGRF and will oversee the resulting body of work. Anticipated GGRF-related project work could entail developing qualified project standards and systems that support their implementation, contributing to online tools and platforms that promote coordination across awardees, market building activities in select markets including direct service provision and partner coordination, and project-level technical assistance provision to eligible projects. VEIC’s technical assistance and market development roles within the GGRF are intended to support low income and disadvantaged communities’ ability access funds toward meaningful decarbonization projects that serve those communities’ needs and priorities. Candidates do not need to have deep experience in project finance or fund development but should have enough background to be able to interact with lenders about underwriting and pipeline development. The GGRF work is expected to cross multiple practice areas in VEIC including residential and small commercial program design, engineering, marketing and communications, and stakeholder engagement.


We are committed to building a work community that is inclusive and represents a vibrant diversity of background, experience, perspective, and thought. Climate change impacts all of us; however, we are impacted differently based on our identities and experiences. We all deserve a place at the table to make decisions about our collective future – we hope you'll consider joining us as we work towards our vision for a healthy planet, thriving people, and energy justice.


Please Note: At this time only qualified candidates located in the states where VEIC conducts business will be considered: CA, CT, DC, DE, HI, IL, MA, MD, ME, MI, MT, NJ, NY, PA, OH, RI, VA, VT, and WI.  Candidates across all markers of identity (age, race, gender, ability, veteran status, communication style, etc.) are highly encouraged to apply.
