We are looking for a strategic leader who wants to play a key role in extending our impact on the world by leading our social investment and partnership opportunities. Sitting on our Senior Management Team you will facilitate the development and evolution of the strategic vision for the organisation. Responsible for reviewing, assessing and proactively cultivating social investment opportunities to extend our impact you will lead a small team in conducting due diligence and execution of prospective investments and grants. You will be excited by the chance to analyse and assess our impact by looking at results, measurement and lessons learned.
You will truly believe that the idea of entrepreneurship can have a positive influence on the world and you will be inspired by leading our team in the incubation of Virgn Unite’s Entrepreneurship initiative, including the Branson Centre’s for Entrepreneurship, Start-Up Loans and possible new markets and models of delivery.
An experienced leader, you will have worked at a senior level in an international environment. You will be passionate about the opportunity this role presents to deliver social change and be keen to use your proven entrepreneurial approach, investments, project management and analytical skills to help achieve this.
