This role will focus on Brand Building and Positioning as well as Media and Issues Management, but from time to time will also cover cross-team assignments across the other pillars.

The individual will manage, and from time to time, lead communications efforts to support the Sustainability Group (SUG), whose strategy guides sustainability-related activities with the investment community, international organisations and fora like conferences, and media engagements.

The role also involves driving strategic communications efforts to highlight new sustainability-oriented investments and investment platforms across the firm, with a focus on speaking/thought leadership engagements and overall project coordination.

The candidate must be highly adaptable and can effectively contribute within matrix structures in a fast-paced and dynamic cross-functional, cross-cultural environment.

Responsibilities :
  • Work with business stakeholders to raise the profile of the firm's sustainability-centered projects, deals, and initiatives amongst global audiences
  • Assist with building the firms' overarching sustainability brand positioning and narrative through media, industry, and community engagement
  • Support and execute communications plans aligned with Temasek's sustainability narrative, including handling media queries and issue management
  • Contribute to the production of sustainability-themed content (e.g., videos, feature stories, op-eds, infographics etc.)
  • Contribute to and manage various integrated communications programmes and campaigns, as required
  • Manage agency partners and vendors to deliver on these programmes and campaigns
Requirements :
  • Minimum 8 years (AVP) / 10 years (VP) of relevant work experience in mass communications, public relations, sustainability, or other related fields, with proven experience crafting and executing sustainability/ESG communications strategies.
  • A broad understanding of the global sustainability/ESG space, with informed perspectives on the latest industry policies, developments, and trends
  • Proven track record at building, implementing, and managing processes that lead to effective information management and communications between multiple stakeholders.
  • Excellent verbal and written skills, including strong presentation skills for audiences at senior management level.
  • A critical thinker who can 'connect the dots', as well as an energetic self-starter who is highly adaptable with a can do attitude, coupled with a strong interest in sustainability
  • A team player with proven organisational skills to lead multiple, concurrent projects within tight deadlines; and ability to work constructively in a matrix environment with multiple stakeholders and partners
