Researcher (ESG)

Why are we here?

The world needs a different kind of newsroom. Not chasing breaking news, but revealing what’s driving it. Built to cover stories not as they happen, but when they’re ready. Where everyone has a seat at the table. We’re here to build a journalism that lasts. A business model that’s responsible and sustainable.

What is the Tortoise Intelligence team?

The Intelligence team produces index and data projects to make complex data clear, explainable and comparable. You can see examples of our work here.

What’s my personal contribution?

You will be working on Tortoise’s Responsibility100 Index, a pioneering ranking of the FTSE 100 that investigates companies’ performance on social and environmental indicators. You will also be working on The Better Food Index, a ranking of the 30 largest food companies in the UK based on sustainability performance.

As a researcher on these large-scale ongoing data projects, your role will involve researching and investigating these companies, as well as liaising with them directly about their data.

We are looking for a researcher who is passionate about holding companies to account for their sustainability performance, with prior experience and understanding of ESG and ideally knowledge of food sustainability.

What are my responsibilities & accountabilities?

What do I know? Essential knowledge, skills and experience.

Desirable knowledge, skills and experience.

What do I show? Essential behaviours.
