Wise Group

Are you interested in working with one of the UK’s leading social enterprises? Do you believe you could add value to our work and help increase the social impact we make?

The Wise Group develops and delivers services to meet the needs of individuals, communities and society across Scotland and the north east region of England.

In 2013 the Wise Group celebrated 30 years of changing lives and providing solutions to social problems – helping people gain new skills and secure jobs, reducing reoffending, regenerating communities and eliminating fuel poverty and creating a greener society. We have a commercial focus but re-invest any profits for the benefit of the people and communities we work with.

We are currently advertising for two different roles:

• Non-Executive Director (up to 5 posts)
• Regional Director (for north east England).

Who would be an ideal director for the Wise Group?

We are looking for people from all backgrounds, in Scotland and the north east of England, that have an understanding and commitment to social enterprise.  We would like people with commercial experience and from a business background.  It would be desirable to have some knowledge of the areas of activity that the Wise Group works in – the labour market, skills, sustainability, criminal justice and regeneration.

Stuart Patrick, Chair of the board of directors and CEO of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, explains more about the posts in an interview that appeared in the Herald on Friday 25 April. To read the article click here.
