The Client

We have just taken on a fantastic opportunity to join a start-up investment firm focused on sustainability.  They are extremely well backed financially and operationally so very little risk involved.

It is a highly rewarding role in terms of content and working with an exceptional individual, and wider team, who will challenge you but also likes to have a good relationship with his EA, so sense of humour is a must.
