We invest in venture because we see the social impact potential in technology. We believe tech-enabled companies can deliver transformative impact in the right context and with the right intent behind them. We firmly believe impact can be a competitive advantage if done really well, and can drive both financial and impact returns for investors.
Our work in venture is one of Big Society Capital’s major areas of focus over the next 5 years, building on an existing portfolio of more than a dozen venture funds to drive systemic change. This role will be an integral part of a small and fast-moving team working to deliver that change.
We are seeking to appoint an exceptional candidate as an Investment Manager with an initial focus on our venture capital investments. This role will help us deliver transformative social change through investments in impact venture funds that support mission-driven startups.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone with impact drive looking for their first job in venture or with a few years of venture experience.
This role will involve engaging with fund managers and startups, drawing out learning from our portfolio, and helping shape our future investment activities. You will learn about the venture ecosystem and the ways venture investment can deliver impact – ultimately helping Big Society Capital further our purpose to improve people’s lives in the UK.
