Vacancies

The EIRIS Foundation is launching a new 3-5 year strategy to advance our vision of a financial and corporate system that encourages sustainable and responsible wealth creation and management. This follows the merger of our former subsidiary EIRIS (which carried out company assessments for responsible investors) with Vigeo to form Vigeo Eiris in which we retain a 19% shareholding. Our research and work with charities, NGOs, investors & companies will focus on promoting a shift in economic activity that protects and restores environmental, social, intellectual and financial capital in long term partnerships with stakeholders for the benefit of all.

We have identified four strands:
• Increasing the practice and effectiveness of corporate responsibility initiatives
• Helping charities adopt and shape responsible investment practices
• Strengthening the good money/ethical investment options for individuals
• Helping the investor/company interface drive a greener, more responsible economy

We are at an exciting stage of development and have created two new roles which need committed individuals to deliver this programme. Of these we have filled the Campaign Organiser post, but are still looking for candidates for the Marketing Promoter post.
