Social Investment Scotland (SIS) are 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, 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.
SIS are now looking to hire 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.
