Eastside Primetimers Foundation

Eastside Primetimers Foundation aims to build a stronger talent pool for the social sector – we believe that organisations with positive social missions deserve the best employees, advisors and volunteers.

We do this by supporting highly skilled people to make successful career transitions into the social sector. We also want to see charities and social enterprises as great workplaces for these people, offering flexible opportunities which meet the expectations of a modern, diverse and inclusive workforce.

The people that we have supported to step into the social sector form part of our vibrant professional community of inspirational people dedicated to supporting organisations that create positive social change. The Foundation is financially supported by the social sector consultancy and social enterprise Eastside Primetimers.

Future of Work in the Social Sector: Seminar Series

The Foundation recently held the first in a series of events on the Future of Work, helping social sector leaders explore how their organisations can adapt to shifting trends in the way we work, technology and the expectations of the workforce.

We were proud to host three great speakers – Lesley Giles (Associate, the Work Foundation), Karl Wilding (Chief Executive, NCVO) and Tracey Gyateng (Data Science Manager, DataKind UK) – who helped us lead a stimulating Q&A with our other assembled guests. Working with social enterprise Catch Creative, we have now produced a short video of this event which we hope you enjoy.

 

Are you interested in making a transition into the not-for-profit sector?

For an informal conversation about how we can help, please contact Ruth Cane, Foundation Manager, on ruthc@ep-uk.org.
