Schedule Of Events

18 Sept

Where do you start? – Where to look for a job in the Social Sector

Presented by Jane and Helen Looking for a job in a new sector is a mine field of not knowing where to look or who to contact. The Beyond Profit course will guide you on where to look and what to look for to match your personal requirements. We can even make the introductions to the right people for your first step into working in the Social Sector.

25 Sept

Make your CV and LinkedIn profile stand out for the right reasons

 Presented by Jane Moving into a new sector means that you can’t use any of the old jargon and lingo you are used to. We’ll talk you through how to adapt your CV and LinkedIn profile to make you stand out for the right reasons. Also so that recruiters understand what you can offer and what you are looking for in your new career. 

02 OCT

What are interviewers looking for if it’s not all about the money?

Lead by Jane Guest Speaker Annemiek Nusmeijer

Working for a social mission is very different motivationally than working for a profit and shareholders. So what are interviewers looking for if it’s not all about the money?

The Beyond Profit course along with guest speaker Annemiek Nusmaijer from The Sustainable Recruiter will teach you what recruiters and interviewers are looking for. We will give hands-on tips and tricks on how to successfully get through the interview and how to balance talking about passions and motivation whilst still being professional and ‘business like’.

09 Oct

Guide to paying your bills even if you are working in the social sector.

Presented by Helen and Jane with Guest Speaker Annemiek Nusmeijer Finances are always an issue and many people take a pay cut to work in the sector. However, people who work in the sector, do get paid for their work (mostly). Annemiek Nusmeijer from The Sustainable Recruiter shares her experience of going from a well paid corporate job to a startup and how having a different mindset is vital. We will also look at the donut economy and how it is transforming the way businesses are working.

16 OCT

Working in charities is all peace and love right?

Presented by Helen and Liz Early  Some people have a misnomer that working in the social sector is all about being passionate, cause driven and very socially sensitive giving everyone who works there similar outlooks and making everyone very personable. Whilst most people are indeed very nice, it is after all a work place and there are many different personalities that make up any organisation. During the course we’ll talk you through the common personalities of different social sector workers and how to get along with them.

23 OCT

How will I know if I like it?

Presented by Jane After all of this effort, how will you know if you like it? Don’t worry, we have options and opportunities for you to meet and get to grips with organisations before you make the leap. Volunteering and mentoring are great ways to understand if this is really for you.
