How To Apply

Applications for the Pilotlight Programme are currently closed.

Organisations based in England: we will be opening applications on 1st July 2017.

Pilotlight is looking for great organisations to work with our teams of senior business mentors in 2017. This opportunity will only be open to organisations based in England. The application process will consist of a short expression of interest. As detailed in the guidance notes, successful applicants will then be contacted to arrange an assessment meeting.

We are flexible about the type of organisations with which we work. Our experience shows the Pilotlight Programme works most successfully with ambitious organisations that are open to change and ready to challenge existing practices to be more impactful, effective and sustainable.


If you have any questions, please refer to the guidance notes or contact Georges Lebreton on 020 7283 7022.

Applications for charities based in Wales or Scotland remain closed for the moment, but we are still keen to hear from you. Please contact Georges Lebreton if you are interested in working with Pilotlight.

* In 2015, most partner organisations had an annual income of between £100k and £300k. We say £5m because we want to help smaller organisations who couldn’t afford the kind of support we offer. For more information on the type of organisations Pilotlight supports, please read the case studies or see our full 2017 Impact Summary.
