Principal Sustainability Consultant
Seismic was born out of a collective view that we need a Seismic shift to help change society and fix our planet. We believe that the business community has a huge opportunity and responsibility to help make that happen. We have the vision to help 10 million people work for businesses that are a force for good. Now just over a year old, we are on our way!
What we’re looking for
We are a growing team of Seismic Changemakers, and we are now seeking a new Sustainability Consultant to help drive forward the next phase of impact and business growth.
We couldn’t think of a more exciting time to join our team, given our momentum in the market, our recent B Corp certification and our incredible success in the Escape the City Top 100. Our culture is vital to us, and we are collectively critical to driving it in the way that will enable us to deliver on our 2nd vision statement of making Seismic the best place you have ever worked.
This is an exciting role in a growing business and will need a high level of energy, motivation, teamship, creativity and organisation to provide the impact we need.
The exact role definition will be dependent on the desire, capability and experiences of the right person. Key responsibilities are likely to include:
Leading a portfolio of clients on their sustainability and ESG journey using the B Impact Assessment as a core framework.
Uncovering and driving opportunities to grow the impact of client relationships.
Delivering a high quality service that enables long term impact.
Building strong and lasting relationships with colleagues, clients and our wider community.
Identifying needs that the clients may not recognise and ensuring approaches and solutions are linked to objectives and future needs.
Working with the leadership team to grow our Sustainability and B Corp services in the UK and elsewhere in Europe.
You are passionate about sustainability and have at least four years of experience of the corporate sustainability market, including helping organisations set strategies across the range of ESG topics.
You have a proven track record of securing new business from existing and new clients in a strategic way that adds genuine value and impact.
You act with empathy in a ‘human first’ way at all times.
You have managed junior colleagues and helped their personal growth.
You are comfortable giving feedback, even to senior management, with the spirit and intention needed to deliver our impact.
You have great communication skills (verbal and written), especially when it comes to communicating recommendations to clients and colleagues.
You are excited about the opportunity to be part of a high performing team, learning and growing with Seismic as we deliver our vision.
Ideally, you will be within commuting distance of one of our offices in London, Berlin or Luxembourg with flexible home working. We are also open to candidates from across the UK, Luxembourg and Germany to work from home with occasional visits to the office.
We believe in flexible working hours to better suit our personal lives while being considerate of each other and our clients. We generally work office hours but trust each other to make fair decisions.
At Seismic, we have 2 key goals within the next 5 years:
To be the best employer that you have ever had.
To enable 10 million people to work for B Corps & Net Zero committed companies.
We don't just talk the talk, we walk the walk! We're a certified B Corp, which means we're independently verified for our positive impact and we were recognised by Escape the City as one of the top 100 purposeful organisations to 'escape' to in 2022!
Along with creating impact through everything we do, connecting and building relationships is a core priority for us. This goes for our team too, which is made up of a strong mix of B Corp, Net Zero & ESG expertise throughout the UK and Europe.
We love working with our clients. From start-ups to multinational billion dollar corporates, we are committed to enabling them to prosper by helping them become ever more impactful forces for good. 97% of our clients would recommend us, with an average feedback score of 9.3 out of 10. We know we can do even better. All that’s missing is you!
Salary & benefits
Salary and benefits are competitive and dependent on skills and experience.
Personal Development Plan with budgetary support.
25 days annual leave plus an extra day off for your birthday.
