  • Contribute subject matter expertise to the development of forward-thinking solutions that accelerate demand for efficiency through high-performance leasing, tenant programs, commercial real estate finance and valuation, and technology
  • Work collaboratively with IMT’s Public Sector team to identify and facilitate ways that local governments and utilities can partner with, incentivize, and motivate the private sector to increase demand for, and adoption of, energy efficiency
  • Lead external communication efforts that promote IMT’s position, research, educational materials, and events
  • Facilitate public-private partnership opportunities with companies, nonprofits, and government agencies to develop energy-saving strategies through market- and policy-based mechanisms
  • Develop analytical models to quantify the impact of the IMT’s market-engagement efforts and the impact of private sector transformation
  • Contribute to evolving the strategic direction of IMT’s Private Sector work, likely leading one or more areas of focus within the overall program

  • 5+ years of work experience in commercial real estate, energy efficiency, or a related field
  • Ability to manage multiple projects, including planning, reporting, and meeting quick deadlines

Specialist, Public-Private Strategy & Engagement

Position Description

IMT is seeking a savvy professional with an understanding and appreciation of ways in which both public and private sector actors can accelerate the uptake of energy efficiency in buildings—and a belief that, by working in partnership, they can achieve even bigger, bolder outcomes.  The successful candidate will feel an urgency for advancing public-private collaboration and will have experience helping public and private actors identify shared values. The individual will creatively and strategically work with diverse stakeholders—who will often have competing interests—to reach their respective energy, climate, and business goals. Though capable of envisioning a transformed market where energy-efficient buildings are sufficiently valued, this individual will approach their work with two feet on the ground, maintaing hyper awareness of business and political realities. Thriving in IMT’s entrepreneurial environment, this talented individual will be a self-starter with a thirst for solving tough, global problems with new, innovative solutions. With broad responsibilities internally that span program- and organizational-level advising—as well as responsibilities that involve external interaction with key market actors—this person will have strong interpersonal skills, the ability to quickly gauge others’ priorities, and a talent for meeting people where they are.

Responsibilities

  • Develop solutions for driving demand for energy efficiency based on a deep understanding of energy efficiency policy as well as the priorities of private sector actors
  • Identify shared goals and values of the public and private sectors such that they can be mutually leveraged to advance the uptake of energy-efficient products, services, and practices
  • Work at the IMT program level to identify public-private strategies that will more effectively catalyze market change—and build corresponding tactics into project design and delivery
  • Serve as a visionary and guide for IMT at the organizational level—contributing to the development and refinement of strategic priorities, direction, and business planning—with specialized input on the integration of public-private strategies
  • Lead dialogue with IMT’s public and private sector stakeholders to explore, identify, and educate on ways they can work in closer partnership to experience mutual benefits
  • Envision and lead the development of proposals and other deliverables that convey the innovation and uniqueness of IMT’s public-private approach to market transformation

Qualifications and Skills

  • Graduate degree preferred, in a field related to business, policy, and/or energy
  • 8+ years of relevant work experience
  • Strategic thinker with a proclivity for developing innovative solutions to tough problems
  • Strong written and oral communication skills for conveying complex, nuanced topics to staff, management, funders, and external stakeholders
