About the role 

As a Graduate Business Development Analyst in the BECCS Business Development Team, you’ll undertake a range of analytical activities such as developing fundamental business assumptions, market outlooks and forecasts that enable strategy development and contribute towards our carbon removals sales activity. Researching carbon markets, customer sustainability strategies and creating presentational materials to support sales conversations will be key parts of the role.

About you 

You’ll be curious by nature and willing to take on a variety of different tasks; and be passionate about climate change and sustainability.  This role would suit a confident self-starter with an eye for detail and a passion for being involved in a fast growing and innovative market. 
You’ll be able to manipulate qualitative and quantitative data and analysis into actionable intelligence and insights, and you’ll be comfortable collaborating in teams or owning a piece of work yourself. With a keen sense of business acumen, you’ll be able to navigate complexity and provide comprehensive conclusions. Experience of quantitative and qualitative research including the use of appropriate tools, such as Excel and PowerBI and techniques is useful but not essential.
