Jobs in CSR and Sustainability
Wow, your site really helped me get a job..Thanks! [ex-CSRFI student]
As you know, the CSR/Sustainability market is growing rapidly and, for the first time, recruiters are looking actively outside of their in-house talent pool for bright new thinkers and doers.
Many of you are in jobs and wish to change, some are looking for new possibilities, while others just want to know how their own job compares with others in the CSR, Sustainability and/or Responsible Investment fields. We have selected a number of websites that we have found of use in the hard task of job search.
This page is one of the most widely used part of our CSRFI, so if you do apply for a job via any of the above it would help us (and you) if you could cite CSRFI as the source, and do let us know so we may post your comments below.
Our expert advisers can also help you upgrade your application documents, including references, appropriate courses and mentor you all the way until you get the job you wish. We shall charge a modest fee (30% reduction for CSR International Club members) but, after, three months, no job and no fee so do feel free to contact us on email@example.com .
First, as an introduction, you may like to look at what our Founder, Dr. Michael Hopkins says, in a short interview on Dukascopy TV on where the job market has been and where it is going in general:
Second, CSRFi has partnered with JobCSR whose website is regularly updated
JobCSR state that they can find your dream job anywhere on the globe in the areas of Social, Environment, Economic, Health & Safety, Climate Change, Human Rights, Finance.
Third, suggested websites to explore job possibilities:
Most recent CSR Recruitment, also for INTERNSHIPS!
The Globethics.net job portal, which provides a wide variety of jobs related to ethics from all around the world, including vacancies in Globethics itself, formerly run by Lifeworth.com.
Lists a large number of companies with vacancies that may include CSR related jobs as well
Can help you, for a fee, find jobs and notes that its ‘flexible structure, creative approach and large data base in Clean Technologies and Sustainable Economics distinguish us from other market players’
Up-to-date Jobs in Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (Note that Eth Corp has never liked the term CSR, while we believe that dropping out the key word ‘social’ lets corporations off the hook since they say they are, of course, ‘responsible’)
A long list of websites both for jobs in CSR and in international development, as well as CSR resources. Done by Nottingham University for its graduates and now a little out of date but still useful.
A CSR search engine specialising in CSR issues and a CSR job search page [mainly German based]
Third, comments from users
