The Role

This is an exciting time to join our Board as we approach the mid-point of our ten year strategy, ‘Building an Impact Economy’. You can view our latest Impact Report by CLICKING HERE.

The SIS board are responsible for setting and agreeing our strategy and the associated action plans that guide progress. In the Spring of 2022 we agreed the second action plan in line with this ten year vision. This plan, ‘Turning up the Volume’, aims to articulate a bolder and more confident vision for SIS and the broader social enterprise sector.

Alongside strategy oversight, the Board and its committees are responsible for monitoring financial progress, the audit cycle, overseeing risk and ensuring robust financial management and oversight of SIS funds and group companies, including SIS Ventures and the Social Growth Fund.

You will provide strong, focussed governance to the charity and bring a breadth of experience and specialist knowledge that helps shape our future success.

We have three board committees that advise on aspects of our work; Audit and Finance; Risk; and Remuneration and Appointments. There are two Fund Boards with formal linkages to the Group Board: our FCA authorised subsidiary SIS Ventures that makes equity investments into impact led enterprises; and the Social Growth Fund – a partnership between SIS and Big Society Capital providing higher value loans to charities and social enterprises.


2 days per month on average, 3 year term with possible renewal for one further term of 3 years

Ken Barclay, SIS Chair, will have completed two full terms at the end of December 2023. To prepare for this important transition, as well as providing support to the Chair and the rest of the board in the meantime, we are looking to appoint a Chair who will support a full board annual cycle in preparation for taking over as Chair at the end of 2023.
