30% Club – A Career Less Ordinary

Profile on Amy
I am an associate sustainability adviser on the Davy Horizons sustainability team. My interest in sustainability goes back a long way. I studied Geography at Canterbury Christ Church University and while studying I worked as a researcher for two years. My research was focused on environmental current affairs. I joined Davy in 2017, initially on the Corporate Access team in the Capital Markets division. Three years later, an opportunity arose to join Davy Horizons, Davy’s sustainability advisory division, and I was keen to take the next step in my career and work in an area I had always loved. A career in sustainability and ESG is a meaningful career with great longevity. A great thing about this sector is its need for diversity in all its forms - ages, cultures, and skillsets - to thrive. My work aligns with my personal values and I feel fortunate to be doing something I am passionate about. It is very satisfying to see the impact you can have while working with clients to help them be more socially and environmentally responsible.
