In Wales we have created an exciting opportunity to focus on the incubation and growth of innovative businesses to provide opportunities for ex-Armed Forces Personnel to re-train and gain employment as well as provide income for the expanding Charity. We are looking for someone who is passionate about social justice and driven in business to develop the social enterprises across Wales. Currently running mobile catering units in North Wales, and across the north and south embryonic businesses using the outdoor environment as means to create income, we are looking for someone who is creative, innovative, willing to take risks and try new ideas, and able to think strategically in business.

We are a people-first charity who believes that everyone with a bit of spark should have the opportunity to ignite it. Be it food entrepreneurs with a heartfelt desire to reduce food waste or have compassion and desire to see an end to homelessness in our ex-Armed Forces Community, our mission is to enable businesses that give training and employment and generate vital income for a growing Charity.

The Social Enterprise Manager for Alabaré Enterprises, will head up a new department within the charity, overseeing small and emerging businesses in North and South Wales.

The candidate will be tasked with achieving measurable outcomes that are aligned to the Social Enterprise’s strategy and programme of work, spanning a range of education tools for existing operators, and focusing on exciting, future-facing new projects encouraging wider diversity of opportunity across the industry. You will be able to confidently lead and collaborate closely with our senior managers and delivery team to ensure the smooth running of the Social Enterprise. They will work closely with a Steering Group to oversee all strategic priorities, company development, implementation and planning. Most importantly, the successful candidate will crave to be part of a charity-wide transformation project of Social Enterprises, having the ability to promote Alabaré’s values throughout. The successful candidate will be articulate, have experience in securing public and private sector income and have experience/knowledge of the third sector.

Alabaré Enterprises, social business is an emerging development for Alabaré and as such has a feel of a dynamic ‘start up’. The role involves further developing the existing embryonic enterprises whilst identifying potential gaps within the business sector within regions in Wales with aim to develop small social enterprises around the Homes for Veterans in Wales.
