Social Business Trust (SBT) is a unique social investment charity that harnesses the resource and expertise of world-class businesses to help great social enterprises grow.

Co-founded by Adele Blakebrough, MBE and Sir Damon Buffini in 2010, it has successfully leveraged £15 million of cash grants and in-kind support from its corporate partners to support over 1.4 million people in need through its carefully selected portfolio of 22 social enterprises across the UK.

In the next 3 years, SBT aims to support a total of 3 million people and is now seeking a successor to its founding Chair.

The Chair will play a key role in driving SBT toward this ambitious goal and will share the organisation’s entrepreneurial, rigorous and positive approach.

They will combine deep experience of business with a commitment to social causes, wisdom, good humour and a readiness to work closely with SBT’s leadership team and the social enterprises they support. They will also work enthusiastically to both retain existing corporate partners, and use their network to attract more top businesses to support SBT’s work.
