We’re looking for a visionary, strategic leader who is passionate about digital, to Chair our Board
Do-it.org has provided a platform to enable millions of volunteers to support thousands of charities and communities over the past 15 years, making it easy for anyone to donate their time to a cause they care about. Vitally, Do-it.org has helped 50,000 charities, voluntary groups, public services and social enterprises find the volunteers they need to run their essential community services.
Do-it Trust place volunteers and civil society at the heart of all we do and aim to inspire everyone to get involved and positively contribute to their community. Utilising the latest technologies, we want to continue to be a part of social change, helping civil society reap the benefits by putting volunteers and communities at the centre of their work.
We are building on our success to date, having moved on from being part of the YouthNet charity and transitioning to a start-up phase as an independent enterprise, making this an exciting time to lead our board during our next stage of development. In 2015 we relaunched our platform with a whole new look and user experience. We started our journey ahead of the curve, being the first to market, and have continued to maintain our status as the number one digital volunteering service since then.
We are now seeking an experienced Chair with an interest in how to utilise digital tools for social causes, and a proven track record in leading change and people at a senior level combined with a solid understanding of developing sustainable revenue streams. Our new Chair will have excellent communication skills and the confidence to network and develop key relationships with senior business leaders, policy makers and government ministers.
