The UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF) is on the lookout for a new chief executive, with Penny Shepherd set to step down later this year.
In May, Shepherd will have completed eight years of service since rejoining UKSIF in 2005. She will remain in her post until a successor is appointed and orientated in the summer.
Under Shepherd’s leadership, UKSIF, and indeed the sustainable investment sector in the UK, has made great strides forward. Green and ethical retail funds have more than tripled in size since she was awarded an MBE in 2000 for “services to sustainable economic development and socially responsible investment”.
“We are already seeing the evidence that taking into account environmental and social factors should help you both to make money in the future and also make a difference in the world.”
UKSIF says her replacement must be “a highly motivated, well organised and experienced professional [who can] continue to develop the organisation”, and that the chief executive role will be “broad and challenging”.
The closing date is 5pm on Wednesday January 30. For an informal chat about the role, contact Áine Hall of Hawk Search Executive Recruitment: firstname.lastname@example.org.
