    Recruitment and CSR/Impact: how do you look for rare profiles?

    Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is currently the focus of a great deal of attention when it comes to recruitment.

    The reason for this? New regulatory requirements and higher expectations on the part of companies’ stakeholders. In an already tight market, experienced and multi-skilled CSR profiles are the most sought-after, but they are rare and difficult to identify. How can we find these CSR talents? Where can you find them?

    “Green skills”: at the heart of CSR recruitment

    While CSR is attracting a great deal of attention, it has to be said that there is currently more supply than demand, and it is also difficult to find a ‘meeting point’ in these professions, which are not very standardised. Companies are looking unsuccessfully for specialised profiles with which they have little familiarity, while candidates are finding it difficult to make the most of their cross-disciplinary skills in a formatted market.

    One way of bringing supply and demand together is to communicate – in a job advert, on a CV and during an interview – about “green skills”. Also known as “green competencies”, green skills are the aptitudes that will enable a company to ensure the transition and sustainability of its economic activities.

    This may involve:

    disciplinary skills to develop a global approach to CSR: having a solid culture of CSR and sustainable development, knowing how to convince and pass on environmental practices to all employees, etc. This may also include expertise in change management for the most experienced profiles.
    operational skills specific to a CSR or ESG position: writing a non-financial report, carrying out a carbon assessment, performing a QSE audit, etc. These skills are often combined with other specific skills (human resources, data, marketing, law, consultancy, etc.).

    In addition to these green skills, there are other “soft skills” needed to successfully carry out CSR missions: taking a systemic approach, being inventive, working as part of a team, but also showing tenacity to convince those most reluctant to change, etc. It is among all these skills that rare profiles can be found.
