Are you motivated by making a significant impact on climate change performance within the manufacturing space?

You are:

  • Currently a highly experienced climate change practitioner, having worked in and across various businesses or sectors on solutions-focused approaches to a wide range of Environmental, Social and Governance challenges.

  • Have first-hand experience engaging externally to develop solutions and recommendations to mitigate climate challenges across a value chain.

  • Have learned from mistakes as well as successes, you have developed excellent emotional awareness around how it takes more than individual expertise to achieve real systemic change.

You've seen incredible changes in the corporate sustainability landscape, but you're not sure where to go next. You know there are still huge challenges to be solved; from global decarbonisation, to improving lives for thousands of people, following the most challenging year for the human race.

What if you could influence and support one of the largest mining and manufacturing businesses in the world on it's journey to evolving their entire global business, its industry and its customers businesses, to become a blue print for how sustainability and business working in partnership can solve some of the worlds biggest sustainability challenges?

ArcelorMittal is the worlds largest steel business - and one of the biggest global carbon emitters. Steel has been central to human progress and will continue to be inherently useful. Strong, durable, flexible and reusable, it is the most easily recycled material - perfect for a circular economy. But it is essential that the next chapter in the story does not compromise future generations. Steel needs to evolve to become smarter and more sustainable. ArcelorMittal are committed to building solutions for the sustainable development of the world, framed by 10 Sustainable Development outcomes, which act as a compass to describe the business they know they must become.

As the Climate Change Engagement Manager you will be:

  • Participating in the Expert Advisory Group for the steel sector decarbonisation approach with Science-Based Target initiative (SBTi)

  • Working with the business to developing a science-based target for validation

  • Leading climate scenario analysis work in accordance with the TCFD recommendations

  • Developing a detailed understanding of Scope 3 emissions and working with the business on its decarbonisation to net zero

  • Engaging standard setting bodies on the definition of "green" steel

  • Leading work with multi-stakeholder bodies decarbonisation approaches across the value chain

  • Contributing to the wider sustainable development agenda

You would need to appreciate and respect how to work with a centrally devolved, highly-entrepreneurial business which empowers its people from the ground up, combining this with a level of humility required to leverage and guide a high profile, well-respected executive leadership team, to help its business reach the forefront of sustainability best-practise.

You'll be a climate change practitioner with strong communication skills, a strategic approach with a track-record of climate change delivery work, and a broad mining, manufacturing or metals background. In return, you will work for a business with as big a commitment to its people as to the sustainability agenda.
