We have mobilised a talent pool of more than 100 individuals who are carefully selected for their commercial know-how and their passion to make a difference. We call them our members because they are committed to supporting the not for profit sector either as consultants, interim managers or Board members.
Through the Foundation, these individuals are able to develop their knowledge and experience of the sector and together we provide thought leadership, research and tools to social organisations. We run regular seminars to inform our members and other guests about pressing issues facing the sector.
We also deliver a financial mentoring programme for small charities and social enterprises in London which is funded by the City Bridge Trust. This is aimed at smaller organisations that lack access to professional accountancy advice and support.
Joining the talent pool
Our members come from a variety of walks of life, bringing experience and perspectives from the public, private or not-for-profit sectors to their work with Eastside Primetimers. They are committed and determined people who can make things work from top to bottom, who know the social sector well and roll up their sleeves to make change happen.
Some members take on paid and pro-bono consultancy assignments, interim appointments, project management, mentoring and Governance roles. Others, who are typically already in full time employment, take on trustee and board appointments. Members share their knowledge of not-for-profit organisations with other members, thus ensuring best practice can develop and the role of these organisations can be better understood within society.
