Social Return on Investment
Advising a local charity on social return on investment, I found that what, to me, was my bread and butter was, to them, revolutionary.
By the end, I had the personal satisfaction of knowing that the senior staff at the charity had a set of tools embedded in their organisation which will help them attract more funding.
It gave me a real confidence boost and developed skills which I shall now use in my job at Zurich. It was good to be dealing with a new subject matter. I usually deal with ISA’s and pensions but found myself in conversations about housing , social services and drug issues.
It does take time and commitment but the more you put in, the more you get out of it. The time will pass anyway – why not use it to make a difference?
