Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 55 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.
As part of the continued expansion of our alternatives capabilities, we are seeking to recruit two (2) Sector Leads for our Climate Innovation Fund to each lead one of two sectors for our new venture capital fund focused on climate solutions.

Today, the team currently manages approximately $5 billion in assets across four later-stage, growth equity funds. Our new fund will invest in private companies developing solutions that help mitigate and/or adapt to climate change by materially reducing carbon emissions, providing clean water/air, and providing protection and resiliency against natural disasters as well as enablers of those solutions.
Each Sector Lead will be responsible for driving the full lifecycle of our investment efforts across one of the following sectors:
The Sector Lead will be responsible for building our investment pipeline, including thematic research-based outbound sourcing, as well as helping to develop our sourcing network by building relationships directly with co-investors, industry experts and private companies that address climate change within their respective sectors.

We expect this individual to leverage his or her insight and experience during the investment process, while working closely with others across our investment platform, including our Industry Research team, Climate Research team and Woodwell Climate Research Center partnership.
