sharing in governance of extractive industries
The Dragonfly Initiative (TDI) is looking for a smart, curious, analytical individual to fill a full-time position, starting immediately. This is an important position for TDI at a critical time of our company’s growth.
We are an advisory firm with an ‘agenda’: we aim to show that businesses in the natural resource, precious metals and gemstones supply chains – from production to retail, site to shelf, mine to market – can create long-term value and make a positive difference in people’s lives.
TDI combines business consulting expertise, technical knowledge, value chain focus and our sustainability mission to solve complex problems and develop lasting solutions for our clients.
We have a track record that includes working with the world’s biggest companies and most recognisable brands, as well as lesser-known middle-of-the-chain businesses and innovative social enterprises. Our projects include building ESG management systems for investors; the design and application of supply chain due diligence tools and procedures; completing project level non-technical risk assessments and provision of subject matter expertise for sustainability audits; the development of commercialisation strategies for green products and services; and, convening, managing and facilitating multi-company and cross-sector initiatives and summits. As well, we have launched a new impact investment vehicle to facilitate a flow of risk tolerant capital and technical assistance to small miners and community enterprises in our clients’ supply chains.
TDI is seeking an accomplished professional interested and experienced in corporate compliance, voluntary sustainability standards and due diligence assessments. You will report to TDI’s VP, and work closely with other TDI team members.
Your main responsibilities will include the following:
Everyone who works in our team speaks directly with our clients, which means that strong written and verbal communications are a requisite, as well as confidence in dealing with people at different management levels and working in a range of institutional settings such as SMEs, corporations, NGOs and government agencies.
We are a small team, the members of which work remotely and travel frequently. The applicant will need to be happy working autonomously, managing their own time, prioritising work-load, thinking on their feet and taking the initiative to ask questions and find solutions to problems.
