About Climate Analytics – Perth Office (Australia)

In 2017, we established Climate Analytics Australia Ltd, based in Perth. CAA conducts climate and energy analysis to inform policymakers and stakeholders on 1.5˚C Paris Agreement compatible energy transitions. With a specific focus on mitigation in Australia, and Asia, our team works closely with civil society and the public sector to determine national and sectoral level 1.5˚C compatible emissions pathways, and to support local actors to identify socially, environmental and economically feasible decarbonisation strategies.

Across the region, many countries are considered among the most climate vulnerable, facing an array of climate and pollution challenges from rising energy demand based on fossil fuels. We work on projects in the two largest Asian economies – China and India. We also partner with civil society in Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Viet Nam on energy-related challenges.

Our Australian projects are centrally focussed on a 1.5˚C energy system transition for the country, at both federal and state level. We analyse the policies and strategies required to get there, including a phase-out of fossil gas and coal, both in the power sector and production. We conducted the first 1.5˚C compatible scenarios for Australia, Western Australia and Queensland. We also undertake science-based climate impact analyses.

Job Description

We are currently seeking a freelance graphic designer to support our international and Australian climate change programming, in particular ensuring graphical and effective visualisation of emissions pathways relevant to national, sectoral and subnational circumstances. While we work with graphic designers based in Europe, we are looking for someone closer to home, and in a better timezone to be able to work with the Australian office.

Your Responsibilities

Under the supervision of the project leader (of various projects) and in close collaboration with the global communications and Climate Policy Team, you or your firm will be able to demonstrate and achieve the following:

  • High proficiency of creating compelling graphs from Excel data
  • Strong familiarity with emissions, energy data and analysis (highly desirable)
  • The ability to explain complicated energy analysis in clear design, to ensure accessibility
  • Experience in working with a company style guide
  • Wide experience in supporting the laying out of reports (MS Word to PDF)
  • The ability to work to tight deadlines with fast turnarounds

We offer

Work with a purpose. With us you will work with a team of engaged people and with your skills you can make a positive contribution to our work in the field of climate change.
We offer a positive and inspiring working atmosphere in an international team. Our Australia office is located in the heart of Fremantle, Perth.
