ONGOING OPPORTUNITIES 

CARBON ACCOUNTANT

Graduates to senior accountants welcome to apply. Salary range is $65,000 to $95,000 depending on experience.

“I’m not a regular accountant, I’m a cool accountant” - if you want to proudly make this statement at your next family gathering or social event, it’s time to transition to carbon accounting. You’ll be working on one of the most significant global challenges of our time - how do we decarbonise small and medium businesses?

 

Ellis Richmond is a management and sustainability consulting firm based in Tasmania, we provide carbon accounting services through our start-up, Local Carbon. We’re looking for exceptional accountants with a passion for sustainability and a strong desire to support SMEs in decarbonising their organisations. Carbon accountants support clients to calculate their emissions in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas standards, they also work closely with our analysts to identify opportunities for reducing emissions.

 

About Local Carbon

Local Carbon provides businesses with the people and tools they need to embed sustainability within their organisation in a meaningful way. This includes carbon accountants who calculate emissions, analysts who help identify valuable insights from the data and carbon analysts who help businesses navigate carbon markets and reduction opportunities. Local Carbon is also a match making platform, connecting businesses who are generating carbon credits or delivering high impact projects with those who want to purchase offsets or support these projects in their community. Local Carbon brings transparency and integrity to the world of sustainability.

 

About the Role

You will be provided with training and support to learn at a rapid pace as you transition to the world of carbon accounting. While we all love excel – we communicate data to clients through PowerBi so experience using this will be highly regarded. Our clients are generally not cool Carbon accountants either - so we break complex information down in a way that is meaningful and makes sense to them. A strong ability to communicate effectively with clients is really important.

 

We’re headquartered in Burnie on the northwest coast of Tassie, if you’re from here or you’re willing to move here, that will be considered highly favourable. While we’re a flexible workplace that will always support our team to work in a way that meets their individual wants and needs - our success is centred around team connectivity and a fast-paced learning environment - something we know is optimised when we have opportunities to work together in person. And don’t be coming at us about Burnie - we’ve got the best cafe in the state (coffee sorted), breweries (one in town and two more nearby), little penguins (can live stream them on YouTube if you don’t believe us) and we’re less than an hour from some of the best outdoor playgrounds in Tasmania (hello Cradle Mountain and Boat Harbour beach).

 

Culture is everything for us and our values will tell you a lot about who we are, make sure you check them out on our website before applying!

If this sounds like the high impact role you’ve always wanted, we want to meet you! We’re looking for the most passionate people we can find to work on the biggest challenges we have.

  • Think Big: If you could solve one problem on a global scale, what would it be and where would you start?

  • Think Local: If you live on the NW Coast what are the best things about living here? If you are looking to move here, what are you most looking forward to?

  • Think Green: What’s one of the most interesting sustainability projects that you have had the opportunity to work on? What was the impact and how was it measured? If you haven’t had an opportunity to work on one, what drives your interest in this space?

  • Think Outside of the Box: Do you consider yourself a creative thinker? How do you go about generating new ideas and insights?
