Job Description:

Accelerate the transition to a clean, low-carbon energy future

You love to learn and want to increase your impact. You want to work with a team of like-minded, collaborative colleagues, dedicated to accelerating the transition to a low-carbon future. You want to focus your talents and career on building a healthy, livable planet.

Welcome to DUNSKY ENERGY + CLIMATE ADVISORS. We’re a mission-driven (B-Corp certified) firm focused on exactly that: helping our clients accelerate the transition to a clean, low-carbon energy future. We didn’t come to this lately: we’ve been at it – meticulously supporting leading governments, utilities, businesses and others across North America – for nearly 18 years.

Our team of more than 40 professionals are whip-smart, super-kind, fun, and deeply dedicated to the mission. They include a deep bench of analysts and subject matter experts (across buildings, energy, mobility and industry), and a team of consultants able to translate findings and advise clients on key policies and strategies to make it happen. If you join us, you will be assessing opportunities for large-scale decarbonization; designing the programs, policies and market strategies that can truly accelerate their adoption; and/or evaluating the performance of those strategies with a view to continuous improvement.

Of course, your success isn’t solely linked to impact. You want real opportunity to grow – professionally and intellectually. You’re at ease with a fast pace, but also want a reasonable work/life balance, because your weekends and evenings should by default be yours. And of course, you want to be properly compensated. We strive to offer all of these, because we know that your success is multifaceted, and because we only achieve our mission if our teammates are healthy, happy, energized and growing.


Our team is made up of collaborative, curious people who care deeply about the future of the planet. You share the common traits of our team and are rigorous, analytical and communicate effectively. You also offer:

Required skills & experience:

  • 2-4 years of work experience that is relevant to supporting the clean energy transition

  • knowledge and experience with the MS Office suite, with a particular emphasis on Microsoft Excel
  • experience solving analytical problems with MS excel and/or coding languages (such as Python or R) for modelling economic and energy impacts and trends
  • ability to write and communicate clearly in English
  • ability to prioritize effectively and work on multiple tasks/ projects within established timelines and budgets
  • ability to work in a team and strong interpersonal skills
  • demonstrated interest in the clean energy transition

Preferred skills and experience:

  • experience with consulting (project management, synthesizing information, client relationships, etc.)
  • ability to write and communicate clearly in French
  • a solid experience and technical background in one or more the following areas:
    • building sciences
    • electrification of transportation
    • industrial energy use
    • demand response
    • energy storage
  • deep understanding of the issues and complexities of the clean energy transition.


In collaboration with more than 35 expert colleagues in the field, you will carry out studies and plans for governments (municipal, provincial and federal), utilities and non-profit organizations with decision-making power and / or influence to move the transition forward in an efficient and responsible manner. You will contribute to a variety of impactful projects for our clients across Canada and the U.S.

Analysts and Senior Analysts at Dunsky play an important role supporting our work in assessing the potential for adoption of clean energy solutions as well as designing and evaluating clean energy strategies. Your tasks as an analyst may include:

• Developing, applying and improving analytical models and tools to assess energy saving opportunities

• Assessing and characterizing clean energy technologies

• Conducting analysis of energy use and market data to support the design and evaluation of clean energy programs and policies

• Researching best practices in energy efficiency program design

• Conducting primary research such as surveys with market actors and gathering information on market dynamics

• Documenting and interpreting findings using compelling visual presentation of data and effective writing.


Join a firm that aligns with your values: As a mission-driven firm and a registered B Corp, our approach is driven by a deep respect for both our team and the planet.

Be part of the clean energy transition:  We work diligently at accelerating the transition to market adoption of clean energy solutions.  Our team makes it a priority to be at the leading edge of change, and is not shy to look outside the box and bring innovative solutions forward.

Work within a dynamic and welcoming team: We place a great deal of importance on offering our team the chance to grow and lead fulfilling lives both at work, and at home.  We believe that how we work together is as important as the work we do.


We offer competitive salaries and a range of employee benefits including flexible hours, summer schedules, annual bonuses, group health and dental insurance, retirement savings plan contribution, discounts on public transit and bikeshare, and more.

We are also committed to offer our team a hefty dose of professional development and learning opportunities. This includes specific time set-asides, conference budgets, and goals for professional development; an extensive series of topical lunch-and-learns (roughly 25 each year); and a pervasive culture of inquiry and knowledge sharing that dares to address the toughest, most intractable issues.

Staff have access to coaches and supportive supervisors. We do our best to offer our staff experience in a diversity of projects based on your interests.

While the pace of work can be fast, we do everything to minimize overtime, because we believe that work on nights and weekends should be the exception, not the rule.


In normal times, the successful candidate will work from our offices in Montreal or Toronto, or from her/his home elsewhere in Canada. Since 2021, we have a flexible structure in place that enables staff to work either from home or the office, to varying degrees.


Interested candidates are invited to complete our application form and attach their C.V., cover letter and relevant writing samples (if available). In your cover letter, give us a sense of who you are by being honest and creative. Applications will be considered until the position has been filled.
