We are recruiting!

Trainee/ Associate Social Value Consultant.

We are looking for a communicative, passionate and highly organised individual to support our work across multiple projects, programmes and initiatives and learn from one of the leading pioneers of social value.

CHY Consultancy is a very small but very influential, established consultancy that has been driving the social value agenda since 2006.

Social Value is the positive and negative impact your actions have on people. You can find out more about Social Value on our website www.chyconsultancy.com

What will you do? - a bit of everything to support, organise and market our small, but influential, business. Most importantly you will learn a lot about a rewarding, challenging and fascinating vocation and future career that can have a positive impact on people, communities and society as a whole.

Who are we looking for? We have no set criteria for this role; the right person can make it their own and grow alongside CHY. The most important thing is that you believe in your work, you can organise yourself and others and are eager to learn more and get stuck in.
We will help to build your knowledge of social value but what is key to this role is a desire to learn and be as passionate as we are about our work and the service we provide.

With this in mind it would be good to have:
Energy, passion and creativity
Organisation, Initiative and the ability to listen.
Flexibility, motivation and positivity.
