You enjoy developing your analytical skills while being involved in a range of projects and activities, such as financial research projects, developing new content to illustrate the value of the standards, facilitating engagements with companies and investors, assessing global alignment of the standards, and back-end analytics to improve the quality of the standards.
You are excited to deepen your strategic relationship development skills and gain exposure to high-level stakeholders, including the Standards Advisory Group, as you understand that market input is critical to the standards development process and that SASB offers exceptional opportunities for growth and exposure.
