We are at a pivotal moment: the climate and biodiversity crises are deepening, and inequalities are even more marked in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The global investment system has an oversized impact on many of these global challenges We want to make sure that impact is positive. At ShareAction we work with investors, policymakers and individuals to unleash the positive potential of the investment system. We aim to build a world where our financial system serves our planet and its people.

You’ll get to flex your creative muscles and hone your skills in a fast-paced communications environment.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone passionate about the role of communication in driving change, and a desire to deliver progress at the heart of the global economy. You’ll be helping create creative digital content to inspire action amongst financial professionals, policymakers, and individuals, and will be instrumental in helping achieve our vision of a financial system that serves our planet and its people.
