HR Manager (f/m/d)

To strengthen our team, we are seeking to hire an HR Manager (f/m/d) for our office in Berlin in part time at the earliest possible starting date.

The world’s energy systems are changing. Renewable energy has moved from a niche technology to broad-scale adoption in many countries around the globe; the hydrogen economy and power to x technologies are featuring prominently amongst key economies; and conventional sectors are facing increasing challenges. While this is creating tremendous opportunities for clean development, power systems face numerous systemic challenges: there is a pressing need to expand and enhance grid infrastructure, to reform regulatory and market structures, and to effectively manage structural change. Understanding the technical, economic, and political complexities of these transformational challenges is essential for taking political decisions and ensuring a smooth transition to a clean energy system.

Agora Energiewende develops evidence-based strategies for ensuring the success of the clean energy transitions around the globe. As an independent and non-partisan think tank we share knowledge with stakeholders in the worlds of politics, business, and academia while enabling a productive exchange of ideas. Agora Energiewende is a division of the non-profit Smart Energy for Europe Platform (SEFEP) gGmbH and is financed by private foundations and public institutions.
