Would you like to use your knowledge and experience in the field of human rights and/or accounting in the field of sustainability? Do you want to help clients implement the complicated and important sustainable finance and human rights regulations and standards? Would you like to actively contribute to the development and further growth of PwC's Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) team? Then this is your chance!

Sustainable Finance Manager - Human Rights Focus

Financial institutions and other companies are increasingly aware of their role in the transition to a climate-neutral, green, circular, inclusive and competitive economy. Banks, insurers, pension funds and asset managers will have to integrate ESG aspects into their products, services, processes, systems, strategy and culture. PwC helps financial institutions and other companies with this ESG integration.

As a Sustainable Finance Manager with a focus on human rights, you are involved in, for example:

  • Implementing the social and human rights obligations in the CSRD, SFDR and EU Taxonomy and other sustainable finance legislation and regulations at financial institutions and other companies.

  • Implementing the underlying standards for corporate social responsibility, in particular the UNGPs and the OECD Guidelines.

  • Developing your own professional knowledge in the field of sustainable finance regulations and further developing your knowledge in the field of human rights.

  • Preparing and providing training to clients and PwC colleagues.

  • Identifying (and addressing) links between human rights issues and the broader sustainable finance and ESG regulatory landscape, including climate risk and a "just transition."

In addition to working for clients, you are actively involved in building and positioning the ESG team, both internally within PwC and in properly presenting our proposition to clients. You guide junior colleagues and receive coaching and guidance yourself. PwC will give you a home base in their ESG team, an energetic and intrinsically motivated group of people with great growth ambitions and social impact.

You are a talented and ambitious professional with experience in (international) law, public policy, accountancy or audit. You take responsibility for your own career and development and would like to supplement your skill set with sustainable finance regulations and ESG topics. You are interested in developments within the field, and you have an eye for what is going on in society. You are ready for a position in which you can grow, have a social impact and get the best out of yourself and your colleagues.

  • You have at least six years of relevant work experience, for example, as a consultant, legal scholar, accountant or regulatory specialist at a financial institution or another company, a law firm or a boutique firm focused on human rights, and you enjoy working with regulations.

  • Experience in implementing human rights standards such as the OECD Guidelines for MNEs and the UNGP on Business and Human Rights.

  • You are interested in relevant developments and regulations in the context of sustainable finance, such as the CSRD, EU Taxonomy, SFDR, ESG data and ratings.

  • You have completed a university education.

  • You have excellent English skills (both oral and written).

  • You are independent, flexible, critical, proactive, innovative and enjoy working together working in multidisciplinary teams.

  • Experience with sustainable finance regulations is an advantage, but not required.

We believe in the power of an inclusive culture, and we want everyone to feel free to be themselves. We offer access to a global PwC network, where you can find knowledge and ideas and exchange questions with experienced professionals in the field of ESG and other disciplines.

We also offer you:

  • Numerous trainings and courses that contribute to your personal and professional development.

  • An appropriate salary and extensive employment conditions, including a well-being budget. (This is a personal annual budget of € 1,000 to spend on your health, for example, mindfulness, sports, lifestyle coaching & wellness.)

  • A fully equipped, ergonomic home workplace with a second monitor.

  • A monthly internet allowance.

  • A lease car/car allowance, laptop and iPhone.

  • 30 days of vacation per year.

  • Hybrid working at the client, at home and at the office.

  • The ability to focus on Corporate Responsibility within standard working hours, various networks, diversity, innovation and/or recruitment.

  • Fun informal activities, including fun parties and a ski weekend.
