The opportunity

We have two openings for new or recent college graduates, one in the US (New York) and one in the UK (London). Both are generalist roles, suitable for ambitious people interested in the role of business in society. 

You will work in small teams, researching macro trends and company case studies, and contributing to the creation of training and teaching materials. We need people comfortable with the language of business and sustainability, equally strong in clear writing, spreadsheets or presentation slides.

You are interested in ESG and climate issues, you likely read The Economist, and you take a global view. You are an analytical thinker but you recognize that success comes from teamwork and openness to multiple perspectives.

This is an excellent hands-on opportunity for someone who might move on to graduate school. Leaders’ Quest is run like a B-Corp, driven by its mission of helping wise leaders build a regenerative future. Join us to be part of the greatest challenge of the 2020s.

The role is demanding, including flexibility to work across time-zones.

We work in English - other languages can be a plus. In normal times, we travel internationally based on client locations.

  • Comfortable with technology and able to learn quickly.
