About the role
We are a vibrant, ambitious and complex organisation, keen to continuously learn and grow so that we can better support social entrepreneurs. In doing so, we want to better align our work around the needs of our Social Entrepreneurs to help them maximise their impact.

We are launching a new fund, the Growth Impact Fund. A game-changing fund focused on tackling inequality in the UK by investing into and supporting diverse-led social enterprises, with an emphasis on equity and quasi-equity (e.g. revenue participation) products. This fund is being launched in partnership with Big Issue Invest, who the Portfolio Managers will be working closely with. We are looking for an exceptional individual to work on our pre and post-investment support. As a Portfolio Manager, you will lead on the monitoring and managing the performance of the investment portfolio, the delivery of our support for a number of ventures, as well as helping to develop a pipeline of high-potential ventures for our new investment fund.

You will work closely with the Portfolio Support Team and the Investment Team during pre-investment support and outreach, helping to build a healthy pipeline of social ventures. You will have the opportunity to work on a grant programme of pre-investment support, helping ventures to access support prior to the due diligence process.

You will have the opportunity to learn from colleagues and consultants, building your knowledge of venture support. Support begins once an investment is made and lasts for the 5-year investment term.

Balancing the needs of a growing investment portfolio and flagging where ventures need additional support will be paramount to the success of this role.
