What are corporate affairs and communications jobs?
Corporate affairs and communications roles are essential for ensuring that a company's sustainability journey is communicated in a way that's honest, accurate and reflective of the tangible steps that it is taking to support a low carbon economy.
At Acre, we place corporate affairs and communications professionals in organisations to drive their sustainability stories forward with momentum.
In a corporate affairs and communications role, you’ll work with a variety of stakeholders, including other organisations and the media, to ensure that your business’ sustainability credentials are accurately represented and that your commitments and actions towards net-zero are articulated in a way that is clear, honest and compelling.
Why are corporate affairs and communication jobs important?
Historically, companies have not placed a big emphasis on sustainability. Rather than being a fundamental part of their business, sustainability was often seen as something that would be “nice to have.”
Corporate affairs and communications professionals have the ability to make an impact with ambitious organisations that are positioned at the forefront of sustainable change.
They manage the way that both internal and external stakeholders perceive their company, and help to hold the company to account on ensuring that its sustainability values are upheld and that its commitments are honoured.
Therefore, corporate affairs and communications professionals can help their organisations work to become more sustainable, ensuring a greener future for all.
