Senior Consultant Climate Change and Sustainability


Long-term value is created by focussing on a broad set of stakeholders, with a distinct purpose in mind, to sustain a business for the long term.

Today, societies demand greater responsibility from the organizations that they work for, buy from and invest in. Organizations that effectively anchor their approach to long-term value with an authentic purpose are best positioned to measure, to demonstrate and to benefit from the value they create.

In response to this, we are looking for high-performing, innovative and enthusiastic candidates to join our growing team of individuals intent on helping clients to identify, measure and report on the non-financial performance metrics which are most relevant to their businesses.

This role will place you at the heart of a high-energy, agile EY Climate Change and Sustainability Services team that is committed to helping clients build long-term value. This opportunity will enable you to work with leading organisations at a senior level and interact with EY colleagues globally and across service lines. There will also be ample opportunities to work across different areas within the wider team.
