Want to help grow LCR’s social economy?

We’re looking for panel members to help socially-trading organisations (STOs) and Kindred invest together to grow the social economy across Liverpool City Region (LCR).

We believe that STOs are experts in their own businesses. That means we don’t need to be an expert or a judge – your role will involve two conversations with STOs seeking support from Kindred to help them understand where they are now and what they need to do to be ready to use investment to grow.

We’re looking to assemble a panel that reflects the diversity and geography that makes up LCR. If you’ve grown an STO yourself, contract with, support or govern one – or believe in a more social economy – join our panel.

Panels will take place between February and May and we’ll need approximately five days of your time for briefings, gathering feedback and for the panels themselves. Panels will require both an online and in-person commitment, and Kindred will pay reasonable travel expenses.

Get in touch at WorkWithUs@Kindred-lcr.co.uk as soon as possible if you’re interested and we’ll send you an Expression of Interest form, which needs to be returned to us by 27 January. It’s an opportunity to be a part of growing a new, kinder, economy across the city region.

The small print

This is a voluntary role, with reasonable travel expenses paid to panel members
If you sit on a Kindred money panel, you – and any STO you’re a director of, engaged with as an employee or board member – can’t apply for money from Kindred for two years
You must be happy to declare any potential conflicts of interest in your Expression of Interest form
