Applying the Know-How

Getting the right people in the right place at the right time is a key component of our value proposition.

Each assignment team is led by a SocialPioneers Executive Director or Associate Director with at least 15 years’ experience of working at board level in major corporations and/or at director level in public service and consultancy provision, including international project leadership. All other team members have more than 10 years of directly relevant, senior experience.
