  • advancing and influencing policy proposals with key government officials, providing support and justification and responding to inquiries and concerns;
  • participating and attending relevant meetings, conferences and events;
  • raising public awareness and fostering national media attention;
  • building coalitions and mobilising allies, including other non-governmental organisations, manufacturers of natural-refrigerant technologies and progressive industry actors.

Qualifications and Experience

  • A first-level university degree in a relevant field
  • A sound understanding of HFCs and their applications, in particular in the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry
  • A minimum of five years of experience working with or for governments officials, inter-governmental organisations, non-profit organisations, or relevant industry on issues related to public policy
