Corporate Resposibility and Sustainability 2.jpg
An apprentice on the Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (CR&S) practitioner scheme will help the teams innovate and implement social and environmental projects across the organisation. They will help to drive this by delivering the organisation’s CR&S strategy releasing the power of business to contribute positively towards social and environmental outcomes.

In their daily work, an employee in this occupation interacts with a variety of internal and external stakeholders. They facilitate change by helping others to understand how different roles fit within the strategy and how everyone’s contribution can impact the greater good.

Practitioners may also reach out into the community in order to work collaboratively, and in some cases to understand the views of external organisations such as charities, social enterprises, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), or local and central government. Furthermore, CR&S Practitioners are often ambassadors for the organisation, championing their CR&S strategy and expanding their network of influence in order to bring about positive impact.

An employee in this occupation will be responsible for contributing towards, and in some cases ownership of CR&S, campaigns, projects and events, making sure these are embedded by facilitating delivery. The CR&S Practitioner may be expected to help towards strategy design, internal and external communications and reporting, data management, research and horizon-scanning, and supporting budget management. Ultimately, they will be responsible for helping to ensure the team acts to embed the CR&S into every-day business practices and in turn managing risk and reputation.

The CR&S Practitioner will typically be working on multiple initiatives covering a variety of geographies, focus areas, and stakeholders. The occupation can also encompass diversity, inclusion, health & safety, and well-being. Therefore, the CR&S Practitioner’s day-to-day responsibilities will vary depending on circumstances and in turn means they could work independently, in a team, or collaboratively with multiple stakeholders. The CR&S Practitioner is also expected to be adaptable, able to thrive in a changeable environment, and support others through the process.

It is vital for a CR&S Practitioner to be passionate about social and environmental change, and strive to role model ethical behaviour and values. It is also imperative for the CR&S Practitioner to understand the business, the landscape and industry it operates in, and demonstrate the value of CR&S to the business.
