Using the power of business to help address society’s greatest challenges and needs, a global culture shift is underway to build a more impactful and inclusive economy. At SIS Ventures, we believe that impactful businesses, those that combine the aims of profit and purpose, are the future and should be supported with our funding. This belief is rooted in the credibility and experience of Social Investment Scotland.
This is an exciting time to join SIS Ventures as our Executive Director. Building on founding capital raised from a group of individual investors backed by tax relief, further investment from the Scottish Government has provided the opportunity to provide follow on funding to the initial portfolio of 8 investments, and new investment to a further group of impact led enterprises. Taking a lead impact investor approach, our portfolio is supporting impact in an increasingly diverse range of ways- everything from EV charging points, to online safety to cancer detection.
As Executive Director, working closely with the CEO of the SIS Group, Alastair, and the wider leadership team, as well as myself and the SIS Ventures board, you will have the opportunity to use your skills and experience to grow the activity and impact of SIS Ventures. This will involve working directly with some of our portfolio businesses, raising investment to support further growth and scale, and building the profile and potential of SIS Ventures. This is not only important to the strategic vision and mission of the SIS Group, but to the wider economic and social objectives of Scotland and beyond.
We offer the opportunity to be part of a friendly, supportive and dynamic team and the opportunity to play a meaningful and significant role in this next stage in our development. We look forward to meeting you.
Chair, SIS Ventures
