BSWN Business and organisational development consultant

About the role

BSWN has undertaken a piece of research into the BAME voluntary sector that informs this role. The research identified that attention should be directed to a long-term process that will foster connections, build capacity across the sector, and develop financially sustainable community business/social enterprise models of income generation for its constituent organisations, rather than seek short-term solutions. 

Moving forward, BSWN is determined to continue the momentum and collaborate with a number of organisations to implement an intensive development programme to address the barriers identified by the research and improve connectivity, sustainability and resilience in the BAME Sector. We have secured resources from Power to Change to pilot a 6 months intensive support programme responding to the findings of the research. We are seeking a business and organisational development consultant to lead on this process.
