Social Investment Scotland (SIS) is a social investment finance intermediary (SIFI) operating across Scotland and beyond. 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- access opportunities.
As the scale and profile of our activity grows in line with our ambitious strategy, SIS has a significant role to play in building capacity and resilience in the social enterprise sector to deliver impact at scale.
Forming part of the leadership team, SIS is hiring a Head of Market Building who will have responsibility for the design and delivery of capacity building programmes. The overall objective of the role, working across the organisation and closely with all members of the SIS leadership team, will be to lead SIS’s efforts to grow the market for social investment; either by helping organisations understand investment concepts or through business support interventions (both one to one and one to many) that lead to growth and scale opportunities supported by investment from SIS.
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.
