We are strategic problem solving consultants with expertise in conservation finance, sustainability, and carbon markets. There are only three scenarios under which you would consider engaging Gordian Knot Strategies:
1. You are facing a significant and intractable problem that is seemingly impossible to solve using traditional approaches and techniques. To solve it offers you a pivotable gateway. You need holistic thinking with pragmatic and executable solutions (GKS)
2. You are ignoring something you know to be vital. You don’t have the resources or bandwidth to address it. You need a credible third-party to deliver (GKS)
3. Your current or planned strategic focus is blurry causing resource stress, personnel burn out, and brand dilution. You need a crisp hedgehog that smartly marries your passion, activity, and business model to deliver a guiding strategic compass to you and your team (GKS).
Gordian Knot Strategies is looking for a project manager to join our team, initially as an independent contractor with a set minimum number of hours per week. This may quickly escalate to full work weeks.
This role can be performed remotely with the expectation that you attend multiple weekly video calls with team members and clients. You are expected to provide your own office equipment, including a computer/laptop that has video and audio capabilities.
The primary focus for this role is to ensure that GKS’s CEO, Advisors, and Consultants are tracking, meeting, and adhering to contractually agreed upon timelines and milestone deliverables. In this role, you will attend all client calls, capture meeting notes, document action items, and perform the appropriate follow up.
A secondary key function will be to support problem-solving for our clients: conducting research, generating ideas, crafting recommendations, and preparing presentations as needed.
The person who fills this role will ideally have consulting experience and an understanding of carbon markets, climate finance, and conservation. See job description below for submission guidelines.
