What makes a business un-sustainable?
Sustainability - key to new business model
Carbon emissions divide 'can be bridged'
Whilst we are waiting to hear what the full impact of the Durban climate change negotiations will be, here is a little update on recruitment in sustainability- it is looking brighter for 2012.
In 2011 the Amida Corporate Sustainability and Responsible Investment team saw:
- Brand new strategic and management roles in sustainability emerging across a few sectors including retail and engineering consultancy
- A demand for mid-level responsible investment talent to cover requirements for staffing around new models according to the Code for Stewardship
- An increase in business development roles within growing renewables companies
- Increased business in boutique sustainability consultancies
The latter point is a sign that many companies are seeking expertise for certain projects, either to ensure they are getting the most out of their sustainability actions and communications, or because they are not yet in a position to hire a permanent role. Having said that, we were already seeing new ‘Head of Sustainability’ roles come up in late 2011, particularly in the FMCG and consumables sectors. And, in line with the current collaboration trend in sustainability, in a couple of instances in 2011 we saw a ‘candidate share’ model between clients.
In terms of candidates: Perhaps it is the change in the weather or the economic climate, but in 2011 Amida registered many excellent mid-senior level professionals with pureplay commercial experience from a variety of sectors wanting to use their business skills in a new way- to help the world move towards dynamic social and environmental justice. This was reflected in candidate requirements from our clients, including requests for high calibre professionals with a commercial skillset (including, for example, strategy and business development and client-facing project-management) as well as a passion for taking sustainable development to the next level.
With the right people in place to lead the way in this sector, our existing clients have made giant leaps towards that next level from the monitoring and assessment stages through to the creation of transformational change.
If you are an organisation looking to hire in 2012, or looking for your next career opportunity in sustainability, Amida can help. Please get in touch at your earliest convenience (020 7033 3788 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will be happy to answer any questions that you may have at this stage.
