Are you interested in using your skills and experience in the capacity of a non-executive director to help grow a Social Enterprise and its impact?
Benefacto is an exciting and growing Social Enterprise on a mission to get more professional people contributing to the community.
Centred around our tech platform – described most easily as lastminute.com for booking volunteering – we inspire would-be volunteers and make it so easy for them to book volunteering time that they have no excuse not to.
Our early success is promising; supporting 35 charities by placing over 2,000 volunteers enlisted from seventeen corporate firms including Accenture, the Financial Conduct Authority and Turner Broadcasting. We have won awards from the Cabinet Office and Number 10 and are champions of meaningful volunteering.
Our plans for expansion are grand and ambitious. To help facilitate these we are looking for two Non Executive directors to join our formal management board to provide skills and experience which we are lacking with our existing core-team and advisors.
Please share this post with anyone you think might be interested!
Non Exec 1: Third Sector Leadership
Our Social Mission – ultimately strengthening the services delivered by the Third Sector – is Benefacto’s raison d’être.
We are looking for a non-exec to help us maintain and strengthen this mission and maximise our impact as we grow.
We envisage this person having held a Director-level position in a charity, and who has experience managing service delivery and volunteers.
Non Exec 2: Entrepreneurship
Benefacto’s existing leadership team has a private sector background – a combination of consulting and sales.
As first-time entrepreneurs we’d benefit immensely from having the support of a non-executive who has successfully scaled a commercial or social enterprise.
We are in the process of approaching Impact Investors, so if you’ve successfully secured investment that would be helpful too.
We are looking for non-execs who are happy to attend 4 – 6 board meetings a year, potentially take away an action or two and are willing to take a call from time to time.
The commitment would certainly be no more than a day a month and may well be less.
Benefacto has a energetic core team supported by an enthusiastic network of mentors and advisors – you will find the experience as a non-exec enjoyable as well as stimulating!
If you fit either of the roles above, please email Linz Darlington firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 07871 615 118 and we’ll find a time to talk more.
We've helped over 100 companies develop their volunteering programmes and we'd love to help you too
