Data Specialist - ESG Performance Scores
Posted Jul 5, 2021 - Requisition No. 91960
Bloomberg runs on data and data drives the market. At Bloomberg, our products are fuelled by powerful information. We combine data and context to paint the whole picture for our clients, around the clock – from around the world. In Global Data, we’re responsible for delivering this data, news and analytics through innovative technology - quickly and accurately.
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) data is increasingly crucial for our clients – providing deeper intelligence than conventional financial analysis alone. Climate change, regulatory pressures, the importance of human capital, and diversity are just a few critical factors global investors consider to best identify emerging risks and opportunities. At Bloomberg, ESG data is displayed alongside fundamental data, backed by news for context, and used to power a growing suite of Sustainable Finance products.

You will enhance your product knowledge, learn about our clients and their needs, and build relationships throughout the company, all while helping our clients integrate ESG risk and opportunity analysis into their workflows.
You're the type of person who looks beyond the headline with a keen eye for the details because you know how data inspires market trends, breaking news, and analysis. At Bloomberg, we are building priority ES performance scores, and we will need you to help research different industry standards and materiality of different sectors, helping bring transparency to the opaque landscape of ESG ratings. You will contribute to ensuring superior quality of our environmental and social data set. With this, you will help our clients understand our priority scores and integrate these scores into their portfolios. Come see how you can empower smarter and more sustainable business!
