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.
The ultimate purpose of ShareAction’s Investor Standards team is to drive improved responsible investment standards across the investment sector. We do this by engaging with asset managers, retail investors, and other major players in the world of investment. We use our engagement to persuade them to adopt responsible investment practices. This is a fabulous opportunity to join a growing team at the forefront of driving better environmental, social, and governance standards across the investment sector.
The Senior Investment Engagement Officer will grow our UK & EU investor contact base, identify and ameliorate gaps in our current investor engagement, and to help maintain key relationships with current investors.
