Sarah Gould heads Sustainability Search Practice

  • Publish Date: Posted 5 months ago

Shirley Parsons is delighted to announce the appointment of Sarah Gould as Principal Search Consultant for Sustainability and ESG. Sarah has nearly 10 years of experience of undertaking executive search campaigns and will lead the Shirley Parsons service in this growing sector.

Sarah said “The sustainability and ESG sectors continue to grow rapidly, with new roles being created at all levels. I am very excited to be heading up the Shirley Parsons executive search service within these sectors and look forward to talking with senior professionals looking to transition their careers into this space.”

Shirley Parsons has already established a strong track record in recruiting senior professionals within Sustainability and ESG. Sarah’s appointment will provide a dedicated expertise to assist clients and candidates within the sectors.

Sarah continues:

“Sustainability is now incorporated into the strategic goals of most organisations. There is a growing trend for executives to have their bonuses linked to sustainability, providing a clear financial incentive to deliver on targets.”

“All parties in the supply chain are becoming even more conscious of what they can do to make the planet a safer place and therefore, who they do business with. This change can often result in major tender decisions coming down to what actions businesses are taking regarding ESG.

What skills are companies looking for?

“Strong leaders who have a commercial mindset, have the influencing skills to show colleagues how their roles are accountable in impacting sustainability and ESG, and raise the profile of sustainability and ESG within a business, are of great interest to organisations.

Sarah is currently recruiting for two senior level roles:

Group Head of ESG

Director of Sustainability
