Public Relations Marketing and Communications Trustee


Public Relations, Marketing and Communications Trustee

 The Organisation:

We’re a charity, a social enterprise, an all-island of Ireland business – with a mission. To create a world-class community finance system that works tirelessly towards ensuring that positive social impact is felt – not just dreamt.

And we’re getting there.

Ever since we first opened our doors, in 1995,  we’ve worked with capital providers & clients to help see the change and make the change, across the Voluntary, Community and  Social Enterprise sector.

Today we’re the most progressive social finance provider on the island of Ireland, with a footprint in every community on the island.

But there’s still more to be done.

Dreamers Welcome

Our clients can see what’s missing in their communities and they can dream of the change needed. But making that dream a reality takes finding someone equally invested in social change. Us. Every loan we approve must have a convincing social impact attendant in it.

Collectively and through our unique partnership approach we can and do create social change and improve lives.

We’ve enabled all sorts of organisations and projects to successfully draw down the loans they needed to help make their vision become a reality.
