Role/Responsibilities

The Moody’s ESG Solutions Group’s Client Service team is critical to our short and long-term success as an organization. We are successful when our clients accrue continued value from our solutions and services. The Client Service team is expected to provide ‘white glove service’ to our existing client base to ensure they derive maximum value from existing products and uncover new applications and use cases for their organization. 
The Client Service team understands customer needs and goals and brings technical expertise to support client onboarding, provide training and offer direction throughout all phases of the client life cycle pre- and post-sale in close collaboration with the Product Management, Research, and Sales teams. Achievement of these goals is measured through increased product usage, expanded organizational relationships and reduced client turnover rates. While this group is specifically focused on client retention, it is brought into sales conversations as product experts to help advance and close new business.

  • Support client projects related to sustainable transactions including green, social, sustainable and sustainability-linked bonds and loans, CBI verifications, sustainability ratings and benchmark assessments

  • Bring subject matter expertise to prospect conversations and contribute to business development
    • Help advance and close new business in close collaboration with the Sales team 
    • Support the RFP process by providing technical responses for proposals, working closely with the RFP Analyst and Sales teams
  • Systematically gather and share client feedback with Product, Research, and other relevant internal groups 
  • Work closely with the Product, Research, and Sales teams to promote quality improvement and the development of new sources of revenue
  • Track and report on performance KPIs as defined at division level

Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in environmental science, engineering, social sciences, economics, international relations, or related discipline; graduate degree in a relevant field highly desirable
  • A minimum of 3 years of relevant work experience relating to sustainability, ESG, environmental and/or social impact assessment, carbon footprint/GHG accounting, or climate impact assessment
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills, including the ability effectively to communicate complex, technical issues to non-expert audiences
  • Exceptional organizational skills and attention to detail
  • Self-starter, autonomous and responsible
  • Experience in managing complex situations
  • Comfortable in a fast-paced environment, and able to juggle and meet multiple deadlines
