The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is recruiting two international consultants to provide CDM technical assistance to clean energy projects suitable for ADB-financing support among its developing member countries. The Team Leader is a mid/senior-level position to coordinate the national CDM consultants and lead the Technical Support Facility under ADB’s new Carbon Market Initiative (CMI); the Project Specialist is a mid-level position to develop PDDs and new methodologies while providing technical backstop to the national consultants.

Please see attached outline terms of reference for more detail.

The two consultancy positions will be based in ADB headquarters in Manila, Philippines. Initial engagement periods are expected to be 11 months and 9 months for the Team Leader and Project Specialist, respectively, with possible extension of up to three years for both positions.

Successful candidates are expected to start immediately.

ADB offers internationally competitive rates paid in US dollars. Remuneration is generally free of tax except for citizens of some countries, primarily the USA and the Philippines, whose incomes are taxed by their respective governments. Applicants must be nationals of one of ADB’s member countries.

Please apply electronically, quoting consultancy title on subject line and attaching updated curriculum vitae (CV) using ADB template (attached) to email address  adbcdm at no later than Wednesday, 10 January 2007, 5:00 p.m., Manila time. Due to the volume of submissions, ADB will not be able to respond to individual inquiries (no phone calls, please) and will only contact short-listed candidates.

Successful candidates for both positions shall have advanced university degree or equivalent in energy/environmental engineering, economics, policy or other relevant fields; extensive experience of at least 7 years in the areas of clean energy and CDM; and excellent oral and written communication skills in English. Candidates with international working experience in the Asia-Pacific region and with international organizations will have an advantage.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you. We wish you all a Happy New Year from Manila, Philippines.
