About us 

Carnstone is a management consultancy specialising in sustainability. From our offices in London, Shanghai and São Paulo, we serve a global client base of big companies and international organisations like the UN. We are big enough to work as trusted advisors to blue chip companies across all sectors yet small enough to operate without too much bureaucracy and to pursue the challenges we find interesting. We have been in business for over 15 years, growing steadily and establishing a reputation for being good at what we do. Everything we do is bespoke, and that is reflected in how we think and work. Our employees are our biggest asset; we invest in them and they tend to stay with us for a long time. Those who do leave move on to do great things in a variety of industries.

Carnstone Partners is looking for a:
