We require a senior ESG professional with experience working both within an investment context and interfacing with corporates on ESG issues (not necessarily requiring fundamental stock picking experience but with a good understanding how ESG affects portfolios within the investment context).

This role may also suit a fundamental Australian equities portfolio manager who has had strong ESG exposure.
