Are you passionate about sustainability and tackling issues like climate change, ocean plastic pollution, and water stewardship? Are you comfortable engaging with environmental and social changemakers across sectors and perspectives – from corporate executives to grassroots activists? Do you have experience building partnerships across organizations?

Future 500, a non-profit consultancy specializing in stakeholder engagement, is seeking a dynamic and driven early career professional to support research, analysis, and project management tasks in support of our mission – bringing together leading companies and NGOs to systemically tackle the world’s most pressing social and environmental issues.

A small, nimble team, we provide strategic counsel to some of the world’s most influential organizations and thought leaders. As such, the Analyst position is an opportunity to grow quickly, build a strong personal network across the non-profit and corporate responsibility sectors, take on key organizational responsibilities, and gain expertise in the fields of sustainability and stakeholder engagement.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Stakeholder research, analysis, and monitoring on issues ranging from hydraulic fracturing to marine debris, environmental justice to responsible investing
  • Production of key deliverables, including:
  • Stakeholder inventories, maps, and decks: Identify stakeholders relevant to environmental topics and analyze opportunities for engagement
  • Competitive benchmarking decks: Compare how different companies approach sustainability topics in order to provide “best-in-class” baseline for developing new sustainability initiatives with companies
  • Materiality assessments: Help companies gather feedback on sustainability issues from internal and external stakeholders and graphically present findings to better inform decisions.
  • Outreach to companies, NGOs, foundations, and activist organizations to build relationships, understand theories of change, and explore areas of common ground
  • Supporting the development and facilitation of Future 500-hosted events, such as our corporate working groups and annual multi-stakeholder summit
  • Supporting business development by reviewing and crafting project proposals
  • Blog/article writing on pressing environmental and social issues, with the opportunity to publish in leading sustainable media channels
  • Attending sustainability conferences and events and networking with other professionals
  • Occasional administrative duties in support of your assigned projects and partners

You ideally possess the following professional characteristics:

  • Openness and ability to work constructively with individuals from diverse and conflicting political, environmental, and social perspectives (e.g. an oil-industry executive, an environmental justice advocate, a partisan political donor)
  • Passionate about our mission to build bridges between “odd bedfellows”
  • Eagerness to work in a dynamic and fluid work environment
  • Ability to work independently and take initiative with limited oversight
  • Adaptability and comfort working across issues within a small team

We also require the following skills and expertise:

  • Bachelor’s degree, preferably in an environmental or social impact field (graduate degree preferred and can substitute for some work experience)
  • 1-3 years of professional sustainability experience in a corporate, NGO, philanthropic, or consultancy setting
  • Excellent project and time management skills, with the ability to manage and prioritize multiple concurrent projects
  • Strong research, writing, verbal, and interpersonal skills; capable of communicating professionally with corporate and NGO executives
  • Ability to work from Future 500's downtown San Francisco office
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office Suite and G Suite
  • Willingness to occasionally travel to events and partner offices (approx. 2-3 days, 8-10 times per year)

Your compensation & benefits will include:

  • Competitive salary, commensurate with experience
  • Dedicated space in downtown WeWork coworking space, with bike storage, direct access to Montgomery BART, complimentary tea and coffee, and regular events
  • Occasional work from home and/or flexible hours, project permitting
  • Commuter benefits, retirement benefits (eligible after two years of service)
  • Technology reimbursement
  • 17 days annual PTO + 6 paid holidays

About Future 500:

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit specializing in stakeholder engagement around social and environmental issues. We work to build bridges between parties at odds – corporations and activists, the political right and left, and others – to advance systemic solutions to sustainability challenges. Sometimes, this involves advising companies on how to better engage with their stakeholders or develop sustainability strategies; other times, it means collaborating with NGOs and foundations to highlight key issues or promote bipartisan policy measures.

Our staff is a diverse mix of professionals with experience across the corporate and NGO spectrum. Together, we work on a wide range of issues – everything from climate change, to marine conservation, to green chemistry, to water stewardship. Regardless of the project at hand, we aim to earn and maintain the trust of all parties while striving for common ground.

The majority of our team is in San Francisco, where Future 500 was founded nearly twenty years ago. We also have a satellite office in Portland, OR, and a network of Senior Fellows and affiliate consultancies located around the globe.
