Now part of SLR, Corporate Citizenship is a global consultancy and we are on a mission to harness the power of business to create a better future for everyone. We work with companies to accelerate change towards a future where our society and planet can thrive.  We proudly own and manage the Business for Societal Impact Network.

Business for Societal Impact (or B4SI, formerly known as LBG) is the globally recognised methodology used by hundreds of the world’s leading companies to articulate and measure their social impact. 

The B4SI EMEA Network is made up of over 100 multinational companies, who apply the B4SI Framework to plan, implement, measure and report on their social impact activities. 
Member companies are supported and managed via a team of account managers, who develop close relationships with their accounts to support on the above-mentioned activities, as well as identify opportunities to provide additional support and services in the areas of social impact consulting. 

Due to recent expansion and growth, the B4SI Team now seek an experienced social impact manager to join us full-time and lead and manage the B4SI EMEA Network.   

SLR are global leaders in environmental and advisory solutions helping our clients achieve their sustainability goals. We are a consultancy with over 1650 staff across 5 regions – including over 430 staff across Europe. SLR’s ‘one team’ culture is at the heart of our business; providing a collaborative and supportive environment for professional development. Along with competitive salaries, our staff enjoy a comprehensive benefits package including a company pension and healthcare offering, travel and life insurance, critical illness cover and a structured career framework with regular reviews offering outstanding opportunities for progression. Alongside 25 day’s annual leave, SLR offer agile working which allows staff to tailor hours worked around core hours, and our family friendly policies help balance the needs of professional and family life. 

SLR will close the role when we have received a sufficient number of applications, so please do not delay in applying for the position.
