The Community Shares Unit (CSU) is a partnership between Co-operatives UK, Locality and the Plunkett Foundation, set up in 2012 to support community ownership of vital buildings, spaces and services.
Community shares are an accessible way for people from all backgrounds to invest in a project or cause they believe in. They give people an equal stake and a say in what matters to them, as investment amounts can start from as low as £10. Some share offers that demonstrate best practice are matched by institutional investment administered by the CSU through our Booster programme.
We’re now seeking an entrepreneurial Head of Market Development and Investment to deliver campaigns to raise awareness of community shares, to develop and promote new practice in the sector and to secure further funding to grow the work of the community shares unit.
You don’t need to have existing knowledge or experience of community shares but the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a strong track record of strategic marketing, fundraising or business development and relationship building with a range of senior stakeholders.
This role reports to the Community Shares Unit partners and is employed by Co-operatives UK.
