This position is an exciting opportunity to join a small, dynamic team that works with senior insurance, business and government leaders, as well as academic experts, to unlock new leadership to help answer this important question.

All of this is underpinned by ClimateWise members’ reporting against the ClimateWise Principles, the independent review of which sets the global benchmark for insurer leadership on climate change. 

This role is situated in the Finance Sector cluster of the Business Platforms team. You will manage the design and delivery of ClimateWise’s programme. CISL would envisage the successful candidate having relevant experience in the management of global risks from business, policy, academic or advocacy perspectives. Most of all, you will be able to bridge between these worlds to drive leadership and change.
