If you have exceptional experience monitoring environmental and social management plans on construction sites, then you are the professional we need for this brilliant opportunity to work with a hugely well-respected player in the investment space.
You will have graduated from an esteemed university and not only have local (in terms of the social context) knowledge but international exposure too – we are looking for someone with 9+ years hands on ESG advisory experience. Someone from a consulting background. You would have dealt with projects in the value range on millions of USD. UNPRI, IFC Performance Standards, IFC EHS Guidelines, ILO, Equator Principles, UN SDGs and all other relevant ESG performance standards are not new to you by any means. You will be someone who can effectively say that you have contributed immensely to actioning innovative ESG obligations on projects… making projects stand out for the work you have done independently.
Listen – you know who you are. We know who you are. So, tell us about why you would be the ideal candidate for this opportunity, and we will ensure you are the one who they take on!
