Take a quantitative approach to organising, managing and interpreting data and information relevant to carbon policy and markets.

Collaborate effectively with colleagues in both the Carbon policy and markets teams to support the management, maintenance and improvement of databases used in the teams' analysis.
Support the creation, development and roll-out of policy metrics and indices based on both quantitative and qualitative criteria.

Contribute to event-based insights to highlight interesting and relevant trends in carbon policy and markets, and support the development of original and insightful research that provides value to Wood Mackenzie's clients.

A data-driven approach to policy, and the ability to develop quantitative tools to assess policies – including scorecards, indexes, and metrics.

Ability to comfortably collect and interpret data, and articulate your findings in a clear and insightful manner. Strong communication skills in written and verbal English are necessary.

A collaborative mentality, comfortable working and interacting with internal stakeholders across different time zones and as part of a global team.
