Bring purpose to work

Our biggest asset is our people. As a growing team of social value experts, we are looking for passion-fuelled, purpose-driven people to join us.

A mission with ‘might’ behind it

Social Value Portal’s mission is to engage, enable and empower people and organisations to work together in the pursuit of social, economic and environmental wellbeing.

As a business, we’ve got a Big Audacious Goal to help deliver £100 billion worth of social value by 2025. That means making good go further, like helping to create thousands of jobs and apprenticeships. Or drive millions of pounds into businesses and good causes in the heart of local communities.

It’s a big task. Which is one of the reasons our team is growing rapidly– and we need more people who are talented and dead-set on driving purpose to come and join us.

 

What’s it like at Social Value Portal?

Finally, a workplace where you can build your career in a place that’s aligned with your values. We’re fiercely proud of our culture, where people simply love what they do. Not only that, but we make sure our operations reflect good values, too. We put a lot of effort into staying social – in person when possible, or online during lockdowns.

We’re different – and that makes us do, differently

We know a diverse business is good business. And so we promote equality and welcome people from all walks of life to maximise team understanding and ensure success. We offer the chance to work remotely, and from offices in Manchester and London.

Our people care about doing a good job, and making a difference to communities at the same time. It’s a pretty good motivator for coming to work each day.
