The Green Climate Fund (“GCF”) is a new multilateral fund created to make a significant and ambitious contribution to the global efforts towards attaining the goals set by the international community to combat climate change.
GCF will contribute to the achievement of the ultimate objective of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). In the context of sustainable development, GCF will promote the paradigm shift towards low-emission and climate-resilient development pathways by providing support to developing countries to limit or reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the impacts of climate change, taking into account the needs of those developing countries particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.
GCF is governed by a Board, composed of an equal representation of developed and developing countries. The Fund is operated by an independent Secretariat headed by an Executive Director. GCF will pursue a country-driven approach in its operations.
The Fund seeks to recruit an Operations Assistant Consultant to join the Office of Risk Management and Compliance at its headquarters in Songdo, Republic of Korea, for a period of 6 months.
Under the supervision of the Investment Risk Manager and guidance from the Head of Office, the Operations Assistant Consultant will manage the Board-related risk documentation process in a timely and effective way, serve as focal point to the Board-appointed Risk Management Committee while supporting the Risk Specialists in the review and redrafting of Board-approved components of the risk management framework and initial financial risk management framework.
