About this role
Being a part of BlackRock means being a part of a community of smart, results-oriented people who are taking on some of the world’s most complex financial and sustainability challenges. And our founder-led culture has maintained its entrepreneurial feel — we work hard, we work as a team, and we work with purpose. BlackRock Sustainable Investing (BSI) is at the forefront of redefining the financial services industry towards a more sustainable future. Today, BSI consists of 50+ people globally who are passionate about identifying drivers of long-term returns associated with environmental, social and governance issues, integrating sustainable data and insights throughout BlackRock’s investment processes through Aladdin, and crafting innovative investment solutions that address clients’ environmental and social objectives alongside their financial objectives.
ESG integration is the clearest proof point of how BlackRock is putting sustainability considerations at the center of our investment process: because we believe that climate risks and sustainability risks are investment risks, we’ve evolved our investment processes and tools to ensure that we incorporate these considerations into all our active investment strategies—not just those with a sustainable objective. The breadth of our investment platform, and the reach of our integration approach across asset classes, investment styles, and geographies, has enabled BlackRock to put in place one of the most robust ESG integration programs in the industry.

Our hybrid work pilot
BlackRock’s current hybrid work pilot is designed to help you experience the best of both worlds: the opportunity to connect with colleagues in person and the flexibility to work remotely, with greater time to focus on what’s important to you. In line with local health guidance and regulations, employees are generally expected to work 3 days in the office and 2 days from home (on average) each week. For some business groups, more time may be required in the office, while greater flexibility may be in place for others. Our “One BlackRock” culture means you’ll be supported to collaborate with your new colleagues while bringing your full self to work – wherever you are.
The health, safety and well-being of our people will always be our top priorities; we will continue to monitor local conditions and health advisories in making decisions about our work environments.
At BlackRock, we are all connected by one mission: to help more and more people experience financial well-being. Our clients, and the people they serve, are saving for retirement, paying for their children’s educations, buying homes and starting businesses. Their investments also help to strengthen the global economy: support businesses small and large; finance infrastructure projects that connect and power cities; and facilitate innovations that drive progress.
This mission would not be possible without our smartest investment – the one we make in our employees. It’s why we’re dedicated to creating an environment where our colleagues feel welcomed, valued and supported with networks, benefits and development opportunities to help them thrive.
