About The Social Change Nest CIC
The Social Change Nest CIC comprises a team that are experts in creating social impact using social innovation, peer networks, community organising, collaboration and systemic and organisational change approaches.
We aim to remove the structural barriers for social movements and networks for change, providing a way for agile, strategic and effective money management for them through fiscal hosting, which also supports powerful institutions to become more responsive and accountable to wider society and more aligned with the long-term public interest.
Our service offers fiscal hosting, grant management, grant distribution and fund management. We currently support over 300 community groups across the UK and abroad. We are pioneering fiscal hosting in the UK and have distributed grants to groups that otherwise would not have had access to the opportunity.
We work with all types of social movements and community groups, from climate to housing, wellbeing and animal rights. Read more about this here.
We have gone through a very exciting and accelerated pace of growth over the last 3 years and are evaluating what the long term strategy is which you will be a vital part of contributing to and overseeing as we move into the next stage of maturity.

We are committed to our staff representing the wide variety of backgrounds represented in the communities we work with. If you are concerned that you may not fit 100% of the job specification – please throw your hat in the ring. We never put formal education requirements on any role as we value lived experiences as highly as formal education and training qualifications.
Our office is in London, which is open to you to work from any time. If you are outside of London your place of work will officially be your home, and the office if you are based in London. You can be based anywhere in the UK, but it must be within a commutable distance from the London office as you will be required to come in from time to time. If you are based in London, our preference is for you to be in the office a minimum of 3 days a week.
We are proud of our culture. Underpinned by our values of wholeheartedness, co-creation, collaboration and pioneering we believe relationships are the glue that holds us all together. It helps us create the most innovative work with our clients and gets us through the most difficult times together – we know that transformational social change is generational work and we must look after ourselves and each other for the long haul. We understand that working makes up a significant part of our lives and we want to make sure that our time spent working is productive, enriching, and joyful.
We believe that every member of our team brings a unique perspective from their experiences and abilities and encourage everyone to be a curious soul about how we can improve everything we do, from how we interact as a team to how we deliver for our clients and communities.
