[start excerpt]

EIRIS is a leading global provider of independent research into the social, environmental, governance and ethical performance of companies. EIRIS, a UK-based organisation with offices in the US and France together with its international research partners provides comprehensive research on around 3,000 companies in Europe, North America and the Asia Pacific region. EIRIS is retained by 100 institutional clients including pension and retail fund managers, banks, private client brokers, charities and religious institutions globally.

Our parent company is in London, UK, but five years ago we established a small permanent team in Boston MA to conduct research and build and maintain networks with American companies and the SRI community. You will work in the Boston office but closely integrated with EIRIS’ London-based operation. The post includes four weeks’ initial training in London and three additional visits of one week’s duration during the year.

You will analyse companies in several allocated sectors in the USA using surveys, company documents and other sources, assessing them against the full range of EIRIS criteria and inputting this information into the relevant EIRIS research databases. You will be responsible for ensuring the resulting profiles of these companies are accurate, up-to-date, of high quality and professionally presented. The job may involve a small amount of writing-up and presenting the outcome of such research to clients and for possible publication.
