At Land Life, our ambition is not just to create positive change, but to inspire it. We're on a mission to restore our planet's 2 billion acres of degraded land, by planting the right trees, at the right time, and in the right place; leveraging technology every step of the way; and unlocking carbon and other new markets to fund this work. Our team is global, our impact is significant, and now we're looking for a Junior Financial Controller who demonstrates excellent analytical skills with strong attention to detail. This is an opportunity to make a direct, positive impact for local communities, biodiversity and to use nature-based solutions to mitigate and adapt our planet to climate change.

Together, we create impact you can see.

THIS IS US

Land Life is an international scale-up with over 10 years of experience in nature restoration. Last year we planted 3.5 million trees worldwide and were recognised as an UpLink Top Innovator at the 2024 World Economic Forum in Davos. Read more about Land Life and our principles
