About PwC Sustainability

At PwC, working in Sustainability is an opportunity to have a purposeful career to positively contribute to some of the most pressing problems of our time by helping to reshape the whole economy and the society in which we live.

Through speed, collaboration, and imaginative thinking we’re helping our clients to build trust in the climate transition by building credibility of non-financial and climate reporting, helping clients to transform sustainably, ensure the transition to Net Zero is fair, and ensuring our own business is ready to meet the challenge and sharing this story with our clients. As part of The New Equation, PwC is investing $12bn globally over the next 5 years, creating over 100,000 new jobs with a particular focus on strengthening our ESG capabilities across the firm.

Our Sustainability practice is market-leading with over 20 years experience in leading and transforming client's approaches to sustainability.

This role is centred around ESG Reporting but you can expect to be working with, and learning from team members who are also focussing on a broad range of sustainability topics through working with our clients. 

The next 24 months will be a critical transitional phase for ESG reporting, given the number of new and emerging ESG regulations that are likely to be applicable in 2024 and beyond.

Our ESG Reporting team is currently expanding and we’re seeking talented, high performing professionals with an ESG Reporting background to take a leading role on delivering complex engagements to senior client stakeholders related to ESG Reporting. We want to help our clients in tackling their ESG reporting challenges and to create value not only for today, but for the future.

This could include (but not limited to) leading project teams to undertake:

  • Current state ESG reporting assessments;

  • Upcoming regulatory impact assessments and gap analysis;

  • ESG reporting landscape reviews and horizon scanning;

  • ESG materiality assessments;

  • ESG reporting maturity assessments;

  • ESG reporting implementation design; and,

  • ESG reporting assurance readiness assessments. 

If you’re successful, you’ll undertake client work and internally facing projects which could include a combination of:

  • Managing and leading teams to deliver client facing, and internal engagements, including monitoring engagement progress and budget;

  • Acting as a subject matter expert on projects;

  • Developing and managing relationships with key client and internal stakeholders;

  • Identifying and developing new client opportunities; 

  • Leading on the development of sales and marketing materials, including proposals and thought leadership; and,

  • Further developing our ESG Reporting proposition and approach including digital assets.

You will also have people management responsibilities, including: 

  • Developing junior team members through effective coaching and supervision and training; and,

  • Creating a positive and inclusive team environment. 


  • Experience aligned to the activities outlined above

  • An understanding of the ESG and sustainability regulatory and reporting environment and a strong ability to proactively keep up to date with emerging regulations and standards such as TCFD, CRSD, ESRS, ISSB, SFDR, Taxonomy Regulations, SEC Climate Rule, PRA SS3/19, GRI, SASB, WEF IBC and UN Principles for Responsible Investment and others

  • A good grounding in the value drivers within ESG.

  • Strong project management skills and a demonstrable experience of working on multiple engagements and managing your time effectively.

  • Experience in delivering high quality work to tight deadlines.

  • Experience in leading, developing and coaching teams

  • Clear and effective communication skills

  • Ability to build key stakeholder relationships, both internally and with clients

Beneficial skills but not essential:

  • Experience of owning, managing the process of, and/or delivering sustainability reporting within/for a company

  • Assurance experience, including evaluating controls over financial and operational (non-financial) processes.
