Society partnered with CEO, John Hitchin, and his Board of Directors to iterate this key strategy and business growth leadership role for the social enterprise, Renaisi. Founded in 1998 to regenerate neighbourhoods in Hackney, East London, today Renaisi works directly with groups that are marginalised by society and supports charities and funders to improve their work with communities.

Society supported Renaisi’s leadership to identify the key particulars for this role, and then then recruited and worked closely with a fantastic mix of candidates to position their pitch to brief effectively, while also supporting Renaisi with designing inclusive assessments.
