About CFS: Climate Finance Solutions (CFS) is an international consultancy that provides funding (particularly grant and public funding) and technology, business, and project development services for a wide variety of entities in the climate sector. Its clients span five continents, and include climate-related startups, SMEs, NGOs, development agencies, and others. Its founder, Joel Armin-Hoiland, is one of the most successful independent grant writers and public funding consultants, with expertise funding climate solutions in a variety of fields all over the world. CFS is mission-driven. It is focused on supporting high-impact, climate-related ventures, and training and growing high-potential hires to develop the next class of leaders in the climate ecosystem.
Our Vision: CFS believes that non-dilutive finance is critical to solving the climate challenge. However, in its current form, this system does not efficiently allocate resources for the highest possible impact, nor meet the urgency of the moment. Supporting and reconfiguring this subsector represents a major opportunity to both undertake high-leverage work to combat climate change and create a highly scalable and successful business.
Employment Opportunity: This position has significant growth potential, and will provide the candidate a unique opportunity to leverage her/his proven grant writing and management skills to help develop an ambitious venture in an under-resourced part of the climate industry. As detailed below, it is important for the applicant to have relevant experience and a strong skillset, but it is also critical that s/he wants to be part of a business that can deliver on this potential and fulfill the vision of CFS. To that end, the applicant should be mission-driven, a self-starter, and highly capable of executing not only her/his day-to-day duties, but also capable of driving impactful initiatives throughout the development of the CFS enterprise. In addition to traditional grant-writing duties, CFS is seeking a candidate who can (1) manage an expanding grant-writing team, and (2) proactively work with clients to refine projects and business strategies to increase likelihood of funding and overall success.
