Company details

Risilience is seeking to employ a Senior Marketing Executive (12 month FTC) to join us in our mission to help businesses manage climate change – the biggest systemic threat facing the economy, now.

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, to help international corporations assess and navigate the risks and opportunities presented by the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Our SaaS solutions help companies produce climate-related compliance analytics to navigate their pathway to net zero and perform science-based cost benefit comparisons of emission reduction strategies versus their risks.

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 roots and the close ties we maintain to the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies.

Our business received Series B funding earlier this year and is growing rapidly.  Benefits include competitive basic salary, bonus, pension, remote and flexible working, and a commitment to staff diversity.
