NewForesight is looking for a Quantitative Analyst (full time) for the Investing on Impact team

That is you

  • If you are ready to apply your super-powers of data-analysis and fact-based consulting in realizing real, sustainable impact on people, society and the planet. 
  • Most definitely, if you want to be part of a change-maker organization that tackles the toughest sustainability challenges of our time, with the world’s leading multinationals, civil society and public organizations.

“Sounds great, but what are you guys actually doing?” 

The Challenge: Sustainability presents multiple opportunities for action and impact, and a wide space for innovation. Furthermore, clients, investors and civil society are increasingly asking for proof of positive impact in business operations and projects. Organizations that enable and implement these interventions want to make sure that impact is achieved and demonstrated; and they aim to work effectively and support trustworthy and investment-ready partners that can catalyze systemic impact. 

Your assignment: Support organizations (donors, investors, companies) to develop strategies for impact, with the right instruments to enable, measure and report impact. Drive innovation by developing new ways of working, and advancing the development of new concepts and mechanisms to enable collaboration, accountability and impact. Make sustainability-driven interventions investment- and implementation-ready, empowering organizations and partners in their collaboration. 

In your day-to-day work this would translate into:

  • Analyzing qualitative data to distill insights and conclusions to find new opportunities
  • Using the power of data and quantitative analysis to drive positive change
  • Build thinking models and frameworks to show complex ideas
  • Develop documents to capture evidence to support innovation and learning
  • Begin to develop expert knowledge on relevant topics in sustainable agricultural commodity value chains, multi-stakeholder collaboration, landscape-level approaches, and organization & implementation
  • Being the data-driven support our consultants need to excel
  • Play an active role in the growth of the organization with internal (e.g., recruitment, trainings) and external roles (e.g., business development, communications)

In order for you to make an immediate impact with us, we would like you to have (at least part of) the following talents, skills, experiences and mind-set:

  • Respect and appreciate working with different personality styles, thinking backgrounds, and cultures
  • Has the ambition and mindset to become a consultant, and to be part of the growth plan of NewForesight over the coming years.
