Getting on Board & Cadence Partners
The Hub King’s Cross Ltd, trading as Impact Hub King’s Cross, has been operating for almost 14 years, supporting and promoting social entrepreneurship through a collaborative community of like-minded members (mostly social entrepreneurs) in a shared workspace.
We offer community events and a range of business support and
programmes from early-stage incubation to scaling, delivered by us or in conjunction with partner organisations.
We are seeking board members who between them bring a range of personal characteristics and experience. We want to:
increase the diversity of our board members, including a mix of backgrounds, gender, age, ethnicity, ability and education levels.
We are seeking experience, but we value lived experience, as well as qualifications. We do not expect board candidates to have served
on a board before;
have representation on our boards from IHKX members and programme participants, who have experienced our services;
include those with links to our local area - living, working or having other strong connections within LB Camden or Islington.
Who we're looking for:
Investment: An experienced (social) investor, investment advisor or entrepreneur to support our growth and investment raise through providing insights, planning and contacts, particularly to support our growth activity, but also potentially to help us offer investment opportunities to our social entrepreneurs.
Property / workspace:
We have ambitious growth plans for workspaces across London.
We are therefore seeking a board member who would add their experience to ours within workspace provision.
PR and Marketing:
We believe that we punch below our weight in terms of our PR. A board member with this expertise could bring much needed expertise and contacts to help us improve our PR and profile. The appointment would be timely as we extend our reach and launch our new workspaces
Legal or HR: We would value a board member who could bring legal experience to our organisation. We are particularly interested in property law or commercial contract law.
