Head of Analysis: Climate Policy (Closes Monday 12th June)

Sandbag is looking for an experienced analyst to draw compelling narratives from the data behind Europe’s core climate policies, especially the EU Emissions Trading System. The analyst will focus on improving carbon pricing in Europe, from national carbon pricing to the EU-wide carbon market. Flexibility to work on other climate and energy policies where necessary would also be welcomed.

This is a great opportunity for an analyst who is keen to work collaboratively with expert advocates and policy thinkers. The role also offers variety in terms of working styles and types of output, from quick responses and one-page advocacy notes, to in-depth reports with detailed recommendations and analytical findings.


£35,000 to £39,000 dependent on experience, plus pension contribution. Flexitime available. Open to applications from part-time workers.


The job can be based in London (near London Bridge / Borough Market) or the European Quarter in Brussels. Please indicate your preferred location  in your application. There is a possibility of travel elsewhere in Europe and sometimes further afield, as our advocacy requires.

To Apply

Please send a CV of up to two sides, plus a covering letter of up to two sides. The deadline for applications is noon, Monday 12th June. We anticipate conducting interviews the week commencing 19th June, in London, although Skype interviews are also possible.
