We are looking for someone strategic, passionate about the planet and people, and driven to create a better future for the next generation and beyond.

Our client, an FTSE-listed global manufacturer and a key supplier in facilitating the global energy transition, is on the hunt for a new Head of ESG & Sustainability to embed sustainability into all parts of the company's operations, building upon the sustainability strategy and evolving it to stand them in good stead for the future.

The Head of ESG & Sustainability will play a fundamental role in engagement with investors, the Senior Leadership Team and Board, and key communities. You will bring a blend of environmental and social knowledge to a corporate setting.

You will:

  • Embed sustainability into different aspects of the business, ensuring sustainability literacy across the organisation within HSE, Engineering, Procurement, Company Secretary, Strategy, HR and Communications

  • Be responsible for external reporting, working closely with investors and ratings agencies to create best-in-class reports

You will utilise your expertise to further develop this organisation's strategies, taking them to net zero and engaging their supply chain in sustainable practices.

Your experience:

  • A self-starter who is proactive and passionate about creating change within an organisation

  • You will most likely have experience in a listed company, with exposure to ESG reporting, having embedded and developed sustainability strategies

  • Strong relationship-building skills, with exposure to workstreams across different business areas and functions
