#18: Work for Impact - the platform for independent social impact professionals?
Updated: Oct 20, 2021
Hello and welcome to another episode of the Impact Consulting Podcast, a podcast that aims to help people become and improve as independent consultants in the social impact and international development fields.
Today, I’m delighted to be joined by Geoff Hucker, Founder and CEO of Work For Impact, which is a new platform designed to help nonprofits and “For Purpose” organisations engage top on-demand talent, meet the demands of the changing landscape of ‘work,’ implement agile working practices, and become leaders in the socially responsible freelance space.
Based in Hong Kong, Geoff has over 18 years of experience as a social entrepreneur and has directed and scaled a successful charity – Beyond The Orphanage. Geoff has also hired and worked with freelancers from around the world.
One of our missions at the Impact Consulting Hub is to improve how independent work in the social impact space is structured, and, ultimately, to help us all deliver greater impact for our clients. I was therefore really excited for the launch of Work for Impact, which promises to do just that.
So in today's interview, we discuss:
Work for Impact's story
How Work for Impact functions, who it serves (especially with respect to independent consultants like most IC-Hubbers), and how it differs from platforms already out there.
Geoff’s tips on how to get work through the Work for Impact platform.
As always, thank you so much for listening. And if you’ve enjoyed this episode, please feel free to share it, leave a review on iTunes, or get in touch at impactconsultinghub.com. Without further ado, please sit back and enjoy the show.
