Job Details

We are looking for Associates to support our growing pipeline of projects across the organisation. You will become a core member of our team and work closely with clients, external partners and colleagues to design and implement projects.

The role would suit someone with some or all of the following experience and interests:

  • Understanding of social problems – you have work or lived experience of some of the challenges we may work on. This could also be academic, research or work experience.
  • Data & analytical skills – previous experience of analytical skills and conducting review analysis independently. You have attention to detail and can quality control your own or others’ work to produce accurate and reliable outputs in PowerPoint, Excel and Word. You are comfortable managing budgets or statistical data and are willing to apply these skills to a new context.
  • Qualitative research & design thinking – an ability to plan, design and implement research strategies to understand service users and their needs. Synthesising research data to build clearer pictures of potential service users to feed into project/product design.
  • Communication, stakeholder management & relationship building – you make effective contributions in external meetings and can anticipate, support and build credibility and effective working relationships, both within and outside Social Finance. You summarise and disseminate information effectively, have excellent writing, listening and inter-personal skills.
  • Project management – you document and catalogue your work; prioritise and plan workstreams for yourself and occasionally others; communicate project progress effectively; invest your time appropriately to answer research questions; and formulate consistent and insightful presentations of findings and conclusions. You help to build a positive, learning team culture; have experience managing projects with multiple stakeholders and the ability to bring different workstreams together.
  • Teamwork – you are a team player with an ability to work independently when required. You are receptive to feedback and use it to continually improve. You are also open to giving feedback to others with the goal of maintaining a constructive working culture.
  • Problem solving – you look at a problem with a creative lens and suggest alternative solutions to the norm.The role is dynamic, and it is likely that no two days will look the same. You can expect to:
    • Work flexibly across our different teams: You would have the opportunity to work flexibly across the organisation and gain exposure to a wide spectrum of issues. This will allow you broaden your understanding of the social sector in the UK and abroad and join the dots between seemingly different issues.
    • Leverage your past experience in new ways: We appreciate what each team member can bring to the table. We are committed to creating an inclusive space where you are able to contribute your talent and steer our work with your perspective.
    • Constantly build new skills and develop yourself: Our team members come with a variety of backgrounds and experiences in non-profit, government and private sectors. Here, you will have plenty of opportunities to learn from different colleagues and develop new skills.
    • Play a significant role in pushing initiatives forward: You would be working with wider team members which could include Analysts and Project Managers/Directors to progress your project work. You would also be able to contribute to the agenda for the team as well as organisation-wide initiatives.
    • Work with colleagues who care about creating social impact: You would be working alongside colleagues who are constantly pushing themselves in thinking about how they can achieve better outcomes for end users.
