About Green Climate Fund (GCF)

At the Green Climate Fund, we are driven by the impact of climate change on our home planet. We strive to help countries shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development. In support of this mission, the Fund is hiring highly qualified individuals who are eager to be part of a start-up in international climate finance that offers stimulating challenges. We seek strategic thinkers who can communicate ideas effectively and thrive in a fast-paced environment.

We have created a GCF Job Portal which explains our culture and values, as well as details of our ‘Employee Value Proposition’ – what we can offer to potential staff who want to join us in our climate mission. It also explains what we are doing on diversity and inclusion, as well as some information on life here in Korea.

As our climate portfolio grows, we continue to build our capacity by recruiting new staff to join us. If you are motivated by our mandate and believe your profile could be of value to the Fund, consult the current opportunities below and on the GCF Job Portal.

At GCF, we give you the opportunity to pursue rewarding and challenging work with skilled and supportive colleagues, learning and development opportunities, and offer competitive base salaries and a comprehensive benefits package that includes worldwide medical insurance, leave, retirement benefits and dependency allowances.
