Summary of role

Anthesis’ Strategy, Brand and ESG team operates predominantly in the private sector, focusing on:

  • The interface between brand, purpose and sustainability
  • Understanding material risks and opportunities relevant to our clients’ activities
  • Defining sustainability targets and ambitions and associated metrics
  • Developing and translating sustainability strategies into creative concepts that can be used across communication channels
  • Engaging a diverse range of stakeholders and encouraging them to take bolder actions to have more impact
  • Supporting sustainability communications planning and activation, including sustainability reporting

The role is based in one of Anthesis’ Bristol, London or Oxford offices, but the dynamic nature of our work may necessitate you to work from other Anthesis and/or clients’ offices from time-to-time. Additionally, given the international nature of the Anthesis business and the needs of our clients, this may lead to participation in overseas work. At Anthesis we promote a flat and open culture so as not to constrain our talented staff in hierarchical management structures. Anthesis encourages business development, cross-selling and collaboration across the business, by all Anthesis colleagues, and you would have the opportunity to join groups that allow you to do this.
