Why Join

Since 2003, we have connected more than 1000 business leaders (Pilotlighters) with over 500 charitable organisations; empowering them to work together and share their skills and talent. 

You will experience the satisfaction of putting your business skills to work in the charity sector and seeing real and measurable results: after their year with Pilotlight 98% of charity CEOs felt they had a stronger strategic vision. Two years after working with Pilotlight, charities increase their turnover by an average of 25%. They increase the number of people reached through their services by an average of 50% indicating that they are operating more efficiently.

Our model is designed to benefit all parties involved; Pilotlighters find it extremely rewarding to work in a completely new environment, using their business skills to help great charities and social enterprises. Pilotlighters can see the direct impact their coaching and mentoring has, and  nine out of ten Pilotlighters report extreme satisfaction with their year of coaching.
