Solving complex problems affecting our planet and society requires new ways of working together, visionary mindsets, courageous leadership and a will to get things done.
Under the auspices of the World Economic Forum – the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation – the Platform for Global Public Goods serves the interests of the global commons, offering innovation and frontier approaches to help the international system respond better and faster to today’s pressing challenges.
Our agenda is ambitious. We rely on equally ambitious and passionate talent to help us achieve it at the highest levels of excellence.
In view of a rapid period of growth, the platform is currently looking to identify top talent to join our various teams. We are recruiting for different profiles, leading and/or supporting one of our teams focused on such areas as: climate change, environment and natural resources security; circular economy and sustainable value chains; the future of food systems; development finance and market systems; and civil society and social innovation.
Whether you will lead or help drive coalition building, project delivery or engaging constituents in the development of innovative multistakeholder solutions, these various roles will place you on the frontline of engaging with global leaders across sectors driving the most advanced solutions. The Climate Project is but one example of this kind of work.
What we are looking for
We are looking for exceptional people – people with passion, drive and unique talents; people with an entrepreneurial mindset and high intellectual curiosity that can get the job done; people who are not afraid to aim high and work hard to achieve their goals. If you fit this description, we have new and exciting opportunities opening up in the coming months.
We want people who can tell inspiring stories and who know what to say and how to say it; people that fascinate us, our partners and the general public with their words and images; people who know how to narrate and share information in engaging ways, both online and offline.
Support and coordination
You know that visions do not become reality unless you create some order and structure around them. You know how to give a different spin to traditional planning, administration and logistics support. You know that tracking actions, milestones and objectives can be a fascinating and fun task.
Project management and engagement
Interacting with people is your daily source of energy. You love architecting alliances, partnerships, collaborations and matchmaking. You know how to bring people together and enable them to work towards a common goal.
Operations and grant management
We want people who know how to put money to use for impact – people who look at data and creativity to solve problems, manage resources and describe those results; people who take financial reporting to the next level of excellence.
Why work with us
We believe that progress happens by bringing together people from all walks of life who have the drive and the influence to improve societies by building awareness and cooperation, shaping mindsets and agendas and driving collective action.
The Platform for Global Public Goods, and the Forum more generally, are unique places that work at the nexus of the public and private sector, civil society and academia. By its nature, we have a culture that strives to bring together the best of each sector. It is as much about how we do it, as what we do. Join us and become a driver for positive change.
