GRI is seeking managers and senior managers to contribute to the development of our leading standards for reporting sustainability impacts. These positions provide exciting opportunities to join a fast-growing international organization in the field of sustainability reporting, working directly with stakeholders from business, civil society and inter-governmental organizations.

You will manage and lead the development of one or more of the GRI Standards. In the next year, GRI is developing Sector Standards for textiles, apparel, banking, insurance and other financial sectors, as well as updating and developing Topic Standards for human rights, nondiscrimination, climate change, circular economy, artificial intelligence, algorithms and data privacy.

Leading standards development projects involves researching the relevant sectors and sustainable development topics, convening and facilitating multi-stakeholder groups of experts, and transforming this input into technical content in a reporting standard. The aim is to serve the public interest, promote global adoption of sustainability reporting, and increase transparency on critical sustainable development issues.

You will guide a project team and manage public consultations and other engagement processes to secure stakeholder input. As part of your role, you will also liaise directly with the Global Sustainability Standards Board (GSSB), GRI’s independent standard-setting body, and serve as a representative of GRI in public forums or online events.

• Be a subject matter expert on the GRI Standards
