Pilotlight seeks trustees with Marketing/HR experience

Posted 29 Aug 2019 | Opportunities | Other

Are you passionate about bringing together the business and charitable worlds to make both more effective? Are you looking to join a professional organisation tackling disadvantage across a range of social issues?

We are looking for dynamic, engaged individuals with skills and experience in the areas of marketing and HR, who are keen to leverage their time, expertise and networks to help steer our future growth and development.

Pilotlight is an award-winning social enterprise transforming communities across the UK. Our mission is to help charities help more people more effectively. By connecting business executives (we call them Pilotlighters) with charity leaders through our expertly managed programmes, we provide the skills and support charities need to thrive. Since 2003, we have worked with over 1,800 business leaders to support over 800 charities and social enterprises. Earlier this year Pilotlight was named one of the top 100 UK social enterprises in the NatWest SE100 Index.

What we’re looking for

2019 finds us at an exciting point of growth. We’re reaching more charities than ever before, we’re growing our regional presence and in 2020 will be developing our next strategic plan. In the current round of recruitment, we are specifically seeking trustees with experience in one of the following areas:

Marketing/Communications/Digital Strategy

The successful candidate will support Pilotlight’s ambition to raise our profile and increase brand recognition. The future trustee will have significant experience which will likely have been earned by holding a senior position in a corporate or a marketing agency.

HR/Executive Development

One of the key audiences for recruitment of Pilotlighters is the People Director or Head of Executive Development within a company. In order for us to be more effective at communicating with this market we are seeking to recruit an experienced HR professional who can work with our Partnerships team to help us develop our approach. The successful candidate will have a clear understanding of executive development within a corporate entity.
