Company Details

Risilience is seeking to employ an intern to join us in our mission to help businesses manage their exposure and response to the dual nature-climate crisis – the two biggest systemic threats facing the economy.

We have developed a unique modelling and analytics platform, founded on more than a decade of influential frameworks pioneered by Risilience’s founders at the Centre for Risk Studies at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School. The outputs of our models help corporations assess and navigate the risks and opportunities presented by the transition to a low-carbon, nature-positive economy.

Our software platform along with our advisory services helps companies produce climate- and nature-related analytics to navigate their pathway to net zero and sustainable business practices.

The Risilience client base comprises a growing list of globally recognised brands, including Nestlé, Burberry and Reckitt. The pedigree of our solutions is supported by our deep academic and science-based roots and the close ties we maintain to the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies.
