Posted Mar 22, 2022 - Requisition No. 101660

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.

The team and the role

As a team, we are responsible for reporting and enhancing ESG-related content for the Bloomberg Terminal and Enterprise products, including company-reported and normalised metrics, key analytical ratios, industry-specific metrics, and proprietary scores.

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 detail because you know how data inspires market trends, breaking news, and analysis. With ever-increasing coverage and demand for timely data, you will be responsible for managing priorities of different initiatives and for utilising industry knowledge to help drive decisions and generate new dataset offerings.

  • Bachelor's degree in Business, Finance, ESG, or related field
