We’re looking for an amazing new Board member

By Paul Miller

We’re looking for an amazing new Board member to help us grow. Our board is currently composed of two executive directors and two non-executive directors. We want to build on our successes while maintaining a focus on delivering real social and environmental impact. The company is set to grow significantly over the next few years, so it’s a very exciting time.

It’s an unpaid, non-executive role which will include:

  • Planning and attending four to six board meetings a year
  • Working with the team to set strategy, particularly helping us understand evidence and data to inform what social and environmental problems we should address
  • Holding the team to account, particularly when it comes to maintaining our focus on social impact

The skills and experience you’ll have:

  • Experience of working at board level
  • Experience creating positive social impact in any sector
  • An interest in impact investment

Our vision is to make Bethnal Green Ventures the best place in the world for founders who want to use technology for social good. Can you guide us on that journey? Drop us a line (paul@bethnalgreenventures.com) telling us a bit about yourself and how you think you can help by midday on 9th October. We welcome applications from all backgrounds, particularly from women, members of ethnic minorities and anyone beyond “the usual suspects” – and appointment will be based on merit alone.
