The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) seeks to appoint Chair of its Board of Directors to start the term on January 1, 2024.

The PRI is a global membership organisation that has grown significantly since it was founded in 2006 by a small group of investors in partnership with the UN Global Compact and UNEP Finance Initiative. Today there are more than 5,000 signatories in over 80 countries and responsible investment has entered the mainstream. Following a period of rapid growth, the aim of the current phase of development is to strengthen value across the diverse and global membership base, operate at scale, deepen understanding of the signatories, transform digital reach, develop organisational capabilities, and build a truly global organisation.

The PRI Board Chair is responsible for the leadership of the Board and performing a key governance and representation role for the PRI. The successful candidate will possess financial markets experience, and passion for sustainability and responsible investment. They will be a senior leader experienced in managing multiple stakeholders globally and can commit 30-40 days for this role with frequent travel to London, UK.

The PRI is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The PRI Board should be appropriately representative of the diversity of PRI signatories in order to generate effective debate and discussion. We particularly welcome candidates from underrepresented groups, including those who are female, non-binary, Black, Asian, and other People of Colour, those with visible or non-visible disabilities, LGBTQ+ candidates and those who are neurodivergent.
