Thas been a tremendous experience for me – it’s really made me think about many things – not just the role of charities but the surprising difference one can make without it being a huge drain on time and energy.

As a talented, successful professional, use your expertise to help transform a charity, making it viable and better-equipped to tackle society’s deep-rooted problems.
What skills are we looking for?
Our Pilotlighters come from a huge range of backgrounds – our Pilotlight teams thrive on this diversity.
We look for people who can contribute to building capacity in a charity by transfering their knowledge and skills honed at a senior level in business. If you have been responsible for a strategic plan/project, managed a P&L, lead a team, have specialist skills, it is likely that you have the experience to become a great Pilotlighter.
Here are just some of the areas of expertise our Pilotlighters have:
- Strategic planning
- Financial management
- Risk assessment
- Information technology
- Income diversification
- Operational management
- Change management
- Human resources
This list is not exhaustive and there may be other specialist skills you can donate.
Please contact us if you would like an informal chat about your experience and how it might fit in a Pilotlight team.

Your first step is to contact us to arrange an informal meeting with one of our membership team. In this meeting they will tell you more about how Pilotlight works and ask you about your skills.
