Salary Range: Starting at $58,000-65,000 depending on qualifications. Generous benefits package available after three months.
Application Deadline: April 25, 2022
Start Date: May, 2022

We are hiring a new Project Manager to lead the successful execution of this training and mentorship program.

Welcome to DUNSKY ENERGY + CLIMATE ADVISORS.

They include a deep bench of analysts and subject matter experts (across buildings, energy, mobility and industry), and a team of consultants able to translate findings and advise clients on key policies and strategies to make it happen.
