Meaning of the position

The Sustainability Rating product enables companies to showcase their CSR performance towards all their stakeholders (e.g. audit of the purchase process, people management, social dialogue, business ethics and corporate governance aspects)

A sustainability rating is a 15-page report analysing a company’s performance in terms of CSR, with a focus on risk management (consequences of the management of main CSR factors in terms of risks). It is meant to be published by the issuer and addressed to its stakeholders (above all investors). It can also be used by the issuer for continuous improvement.

Main objectives & responsibilities

  1. Conduct sustainability ratings and ratings on demand (analysis of companies’ public documentation, interaction with companies to get complementary information, assessment of companies’ performance, production of ESG reports, presentation of results to companies upon request) for large international corporations and smaller issuers on the verge of being listed on stock markets, in all sectors, mainly in Europe, with an objective to develop in all countries where V.E is present
  2. Contribute to the improvement of the Sustainability Rating product (2 year-old product): you will help review the product format and content, to be more efficient in the production of sustainability ratings

Expected achievements & deliveries

  • Analyse issuers’ ESG profiles and identify their strengths and weaknesses
  • Conduct interviews with issuers’ executives and employee representatives
  • Interact with the research business unit within V.E to ensure profiles update
  • Write and update reports, in line with our quality standards and processes
  • Present results to companies under your responsibility

With time, your goal would be to produce 15 to 20 sustainability ratings per year. Once trained, it would take you approximately 8 days to produce a sustainability rating and 6 days to produce a rating on demand.
