Sounds suspicious in terms of what a ‘Director’ level means based on a jump from SA. If it’s legit responsibility and salary, go for it!

I would be careful given it has high visibility and churn. One misstep and you may be out of the door. I realized we need management experience to deal with upward leadership otherwise you may find yourselves in a lot of sticky situations

And oops, “chief of staff”

They are not hiring someone with 5 YOE to truly lead investor relations as a multibillion dollar company. Look at IR teams on LinkedIn. IR head names are often found in 10ks, IR sites and earnings reports, and call transcripts. But IR can be something you work on. Sounds like they just need someone to handle pet projects for executives. Think of the role more like internal corp strat and implementation. Director title may not mean much unless you manage people and there is a serious paycheck. Sounds like a great opportunity to exit consulting, especially as an SA!

Depends what energy vertical. Also highly doubt a consultant would be leading investor relations with <5 YOE. Red flag 🚩 tbh (what’s the revenue size ballpark?)

Yup feel free to DM if you need opinion on company reputation. I worked in equity research and now PE for energy

Yes

I have 6 years experience, and it reports to the SVP of sustainability and investor relations Title is: “Director of Major Projects and Investor Relationships” Does this sound overly admin?

I talked to CFO, he mentioned “corporate projects “ a lot

Six years into your career, the Chief of Staff role is more administrative than leadership.
