Working at Euromonitor: Corporate Social Responsibility

Learn about our corporate social responsibility team

Global CSR Manager 

How did you get into corporate social responsibility?

Prior to this role, I worked for a charitable foundation for six years advising corporate companies and high-net-worth individuals on their philanthropic giving. Working closely with those companies on their community investment programmes gave me the necessary insight and experience of CSR to make the move into a dedicated role.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

What I enjoy most, without a doubt, is the variety of tasks and the opportunity to work with many different people across the business.  CSR is becoming more important to both existing and potential employees and I really enjoy working closely with staff members to ensure we’re supporting organisations and causes that matter to them.

We have a growing list of charitable partners: working closely with them to identify how Euromonitor can help develop and deliver their goals is really rewarding.   

What is a typical day like for you in corporate social responsibility?

Varied. I manage our CSR programme across 12 offices which means there is always an exciting project on the go.  People want to know about a company’s values and responsible business practices so communication is a key part of my role: ensuring people, both internally and externally, are aware of the initiatives we’re involved with.

A day in CSR is also fun.  Whether it’s volunteering at a city farm, running a CV and interview workshop for unemployed people, or hosting a bake sale, CSR activities help staff to meet colleagues they might not interact with on a regular basis and have a great time together.

What do you love most about Euromonitor’s CSR programme?

Our responsiveness to our employees.  It’s fantastic being able to support so many colleagues to make a difference in their local communities.  Hearing the positive way people feel and talk about Euromonitor after they’ve been involved in one of our CSR activities is brilliant.  Having a truly employee-led programme makes people feel proud to work for Euromonitor and I love being part of that.
