Ever 1-2 months we run a careers evening for around 10-12 people interested in transitioning into careers in the social sector from other careers, for those starting careers in the social sector or for those looking to take on volunteer leadership (e.g. trustee) positions.
The events are held at our office and we serve an informal dinner and a drink. We cover in the sessions:
- What we do at Future First Global, Ten Years' Time and The Social Investment Consultancy;
- How hiring works in the social sector;
- How social change happens and the types of organisations you should look to work for and with.
The events are free but we have a suggested donation following the event of £10 to Future First Global for anyone who comes (no obligation and you are only offered invited to donate and if you can't afford it don't worry at all) and a suggested donation of £25 to Future First Global for anyone who RSVPs but then is unable to make it, as this means someone else loses a space.
We are also looking to build a community amongst those that come so will invite you to our LinkedIn group to share jobs, articles, ideas, volunteer leadership positions and interesting opportunities that come up as well as to our quarterly social change events, which are more interactive workshops on specific social challenges.
If you would like to RSVP, please do so and look forward to meeting you! The sessions are a great way for us to build our network, share our ideas and hopefully help people interested in social change to make good decisions about what directions are best for them to explore.
