Careers4Change is among the few consultancies in the marketplace which only recruits into roles where the ultimate objective is to maximise social impact.
Careers4Change works across the social economy with social investment firms, social enterprises, Foundations, Trusts, Charities as well as mainstream organisations which have an authentic commitment to their sustainability agenda.
Careers4Change recruits into a variety of social impact positions across various disciplines including social investment management, programme management, communications and marketing, HR, research management and impact evaluation, environment and sustainability, at all levels of seniority.
The consultancy welcomes applications for specific roles advertised, but is also happy to provide guidance on navigating the social sector or how to make the first career move into the sector.
Careers4Change spends valuable time with each candidate, getting to know them and ensuring that the role they are considering is right for them. We consult with candidates throughout the interview process, including advising on CVs and Cover Letters, how to prepare for interview, getting the dress code right.
Careers4Change believes that every interview is a learning process, whether successful or not, and will always endeavour to obtain comprehensive feedback from clients to be passed on to the interviewee.
Communication is maintained with every candidate once they begin their new role to ensure that the mandate of the role is as expected and to extract any learnings about the candidate experience throughout the recruitment process, the potential for future advancement and possible intelligence about the growing social sector which may help other candidates.
Our pledge is to offer a fair and transparent process where all candidates are treated the same and without prejudice.
Commitment to diversity & inclusion
Careers4Change adheres to an inclusive recruitment approach which attracts talent pools of qualified candidates from diverse communities, BAME, LGBTQ+ and other underrepresented groups, with different life and work experience. Through promoting equal access to opportunity regardless of background or previous experience, our clients benefit from candidates who generate original perspectives and new ways of thinking which is vital if we are to create a dynamic movement for social change.
All around the world we see instances of corruption, autocratic leadership, narcissistic management, none of which sits well in the social impact arena. Instead, organisations with a social impact or sustainability agenda are in need of leaders and other employees with emotional intelligence, prepared to drive change though collaboration, inclusion and discourse, engaging multiple stakeholders, not just the shareholders.
Careers4Change encourages those individuals looking for a more authentic mandate to get in touch and talk about the options. In some cases, this may mean a position at the grass roots of the local community.
