The impact* sector in the UK is hotting up, and it’s great to see both growing interest in the field and growing number of events to help those outside of the sector to get in.
There are 3 interesting events happening in September.
Escape The City and On Purpose are hosting ‘Careers in social enterprise, CSR and not-for-profits‘ on September 9th. The Engaging Experience Philanthropy Network (phew! what a name!) and Young Philanthropy are hosting an evening on September 26th, all details in a poster below. And finally, those who – at least for me – started bridging the gap between the impact and corporate sectors in terms of job opportunities, I Am Networking are holding a variety of events throughout September to assist those who are thinking about impact careers with information and connections.
Let’s hope more of such initiatives crop up, so more of us consider careers in the impact sector.
* I define impact sector as a combination of not for profit organisations and social enterprises
