We’re Recruiting for a Head of Impact!

NOTE: THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS FOR THE HEAD OF IMPACT ROLE HAS NOW PASSED AND WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING ANY FURTHER APPLICATIONS.

At SIS, our mission is ‘to connect capital with communities, to make a real, measurable and sustainable impact upon peoples’ lives.’ This connection happens in two ways. We help social enterprises and mission driven businesses access the finance and support they need to support delivery of their own missions; and we support a growing community of social investors, looking for both a financial and a social return on their investment, to access opportunities.

As the scale and profile of our activity grows in line with our ambitious strategy, we know that clear and credible impact information is vital not only for the future of our own work but as the wider social enterprise sector continues to grow in importance and profile. We want to increase our capacity by putting social impact management at the heart of what it is that we do whilst also reporting to and engaging with our growing community of investors.

This is why we’re now looking to recruit a Head of Impact; a new post as part of the leadership team that will be responsible for the development of our first impact strategy alongside our wider strategic objectives. This will involve working across the organisation to evolve the definition of SIS’s impact, set impact goals, build an evidence bank from our activities and lead efforts to communicate our impact to a diverse group of stakeholders and partners.

This is an exciting opportunity to work at an influential level within an exciting and leading organisation, playing a part in the next phase of our growth. There’s a whole range of great benefits that come with working with SIS. Not to mention, you’ll get to work for a leading organisation with an ambitious mission and a pretty great team (if we do say so ourselves).

So, if you, or someone you know, understands social issues and the operating environment of charities and social enterprises, and have strong strategic and analytical skills, be sure to check out the full role profile here and apply through out Careers page.

We look forward to hearing from you!
