Cool Earth is the charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction. Over the last ten years, Cool Earth has used its community-led model to save at-risk rainforest. Unlike any other rainforest NGO, Cool Earth protects forest by empowering the people who live there. We don’t buy land or create reserves. We make sure rainforest protection goes hand in hand with better lives.

Cool Earth’s success is down to a light touch approach that puts local people back in control of their forest. By helping to build incomes that depend on the forest being kept safe, we work to ensure that forest protection becomes self-funding.

Cool Earth is not funded by governments. Instead, we are supported by a loyal group of businesses, trusts, individuals and fundraisers. Their commitment to Cool Earth’s pioneering model has created a network of village partners in the Amazon, Congo and Oceania that each year recruit more communities to join in keeping their rainforest standing.


You will be scrupulously honest with an excellent track record of financial management. You will play a critical role in managing the finance and accounting operations of Cool Earth. You will take ownership of the production of regular financial reports, maintenance of our accounting system and records, manage a comprehensive set of controls designed to mitigate risk, enhance the accuracy of the company’s reported financial results, and work with the Director to ensure that reported results comply with GAAP and other reporting requirements.

Candidates should have an excellent level of attention to detail, the ability to work calmly under pressure, and delight in working with an ambitious team.
