Protecting our environment is the most important issue facing mankind today

Established as an independent entity in 2019 by Quadrature Capital, Quadrature Climate Foundation aims to tackle our most urgent environmental issue – the climate emergency. Our mission is to urgently shift the current global climate trajectory towards a better future through philanthropic giving and persuasion of others to join in the effort. We do not aim to take a traditional path to mitigating this crisis; rather, we believe our role is to disrupt the current trajectory, support those that have already or have the potential to demonstrate progress, and design and execute high impact approaches.

We are currently seeking an exceptional individual to join as the Chief Operating Officer at a critically exciting period of growth for the foundation. This role offers a unique development opportunity for a high-potential individual to ensure Quadrature Climate Foundation has a clear and fit-for-purpose grant-making function, operating model and financial plan.

You will bring a commercial and operational approach, with a track record of leadership across a range of functions including planning, finance, human resources, technology, legal services or internal audit. You will be focused, pragmatic and have a flexible and adaptive approach to work at pace in a start-up environment. Importantly you will be passionate about our work, and aligned with our mission and mind-set.
