Job Description

About us

Spring Impact is supporting the world’s most ambitious social purpose organisations to solve big problems. We partner with teams who are doing truly transformative work but are frustrated that they could be reaching many more people. We support these organisations through a mix of consulting, coaching and training.

Over the last ten years we’ve learnt a lot about what it takes to scale social innovations , and are confident in the tried-and-tested approach we've developed to partnering others on their journey .

Our staff draw on their lived experience, and their professional experiences from across the social sector, to deliver this approach. We’ve got plans to grow further and are looking to add experience and new perspectives as we do so. We are committed to ensuring that Spring Impact is representative of our society at large, and is an inclusive environment for all, regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, and socioeconomic background.

About the role

Primarily, Consultants work in project teams, led by a Senior Consultant or Managing Consultant, to:

  • Contribute, through analysis and critical thinking, to shaping the strategic direction of projects and recommendations to partners

  • Prepare and facilitate sections of workshops with partners (eg. charities, social enterprises, foundations)

  • Draft reports and presentations for partners and internal use

  • Develop financial models (you will be trained to do this!)

  • Conduct desk-based research, interviews and focus groups with partners, stakeholders and their beneficiaries

  • Coordinate project logistics

Beyond working with our partners, there is the opportunity to contribute to internal activities such as:

  • Improving our Monitoring & Evaluation, developing our external communications or updating our methodology

  • Developing proposals for new and existing clients

  • Writing blogs or attending conferences

Your first six months

You will learn about our approach to working with others, and creating impact at scale, through a mix of team-led training, project-shadowing and self-directed study.

Within the first two weeks, you’ll be introduced to clients and begin to support internal teams to deliver consulting, coaching and training. You will work on a mix of UK- and internationally-focused projects, supporting a diverse portfolio of clients to navigate challenges on their journeys to scale.

Staff benefits

Like everyone else on the team, you’ll benefit from:

  • A flexible approach to working and home-working

  • Three-months fully-paid maternity leave on successful completion of probation, increasing by one month for every year of service, up to a maximum of six months

  • Three-months fully-paid paternity leave, with the option to take a further nine months unpaid leave

  • 25 days holiday

  • A personal training budget of £2000

Spring Impact’s Commitment to Inclusion

At Spring Impact, we firmly believe that the impact of our work is strongest when our team has a variety of experience, expertise, and insights to draw from. Our staff draw on their lived experiences and their professional backgrounds from across the social sector. We’ve got plans to grow further and are looking to add experience and new perspectives as we do so. We are committed to ensuring that Spring Impact is representative of our society at large, and is an inclusive environment for all, regardless of race, age, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, religion, disability, socioeconomic background, family/parental status, and any other protected characteristics. We hope to continue fostering an environment of belonging at Spring Impact, where all team members are encouraged to be their authentic selves and where their needs in the workplace are met.

In pursuit of these goals, we not only want to cultivate a culture of inclusion and justice at Spring Impact, but to implement practices that allow us to take steps in achieving these aims. This can be seen in our flexible working schedule (for those who may have caring responsibilities or may face inaccessible transportation), de-biased hiring platform, and organisation-wide involvement in DEIJ (diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice) workshops. 

We encourage individuals from all backgrounds to apply, especially those who may come from marginalised and underrepresented groups. 

For further information on how Spring Impact has incorporated DEIJ practices into our organisation, and what work we still need to do, please refer to our article "Embedding and Advancing DEIJ: The Distance We've Travelled and the Distance Still to Go".

Next steps

Applications should be submitted through the Be Applied site. Please note that we only look at submitted CVs after we complete the blind scoring of answers. They will be reviewed beginning March 6th until the position is closed. 

In the event of a face-to-face interview, in order to ensure that candidates face no barriers to attending the interview, Spring Impact will reimburse reasonable travel costs for anyone travelling from outside of London. Interviews will be conducted the week commencing March 20th.

If you are offered the role, you will have the opportunity to have an informal conversation with a current Consultant to help you decide whether the role is right for you. (We don't offer this opportunity at an earlier stage to ensure that no candidates are advantaged during the interview stage).

If you have any practical or logistical questions about the application process or role, please email However, as part of our ambition to diversity and equity, we have decided not to offer potential applicants the opportunity of an informal conversation with Spring Impact before applying. This is because we want to ensure that all candidates have an equal opportunity to perform well in the application process. We know that many factors contribute to individuals feeling comfortable reaching out for informal conversations - including social, cultural and educational background, as well as personality and confidence levels- and we want to ensure that those with the confidence to reach out do not have more information to perform successfully in application and interview. We are driven to ensure that applicants across socio-cultural and educational background  have an equal footing in the application process.  For candidates offered the role, we will offer the option of an informal conversation with a Spring Impact team member to help you understand whether the role is right for you.
