Following the recent departure of a couple of our founding members, Social Enterprise Mark CIC is currently seeking people to join the independent Certification Panel, which oversees the assessment of applications for the Social Enterprise Mark.
The Panel’s role is to advise on the interpretation of the Mark criteria, evidence requirements, and other factors that contribute towards a robust assessment process. The Panel Member role is voluntary and we would welcome interest from any Mark holders and supporters who are prepared to lend their time fulfilling this vital function to Social Enterprise Mark (and Gold Mark) certification.
The Certification Panel typically meets twice a year, for between 2 – 3 hours, reviewing assessments made by our team across the year and other exceptional matters relevant to the criteria or new applicants who have put themselves forward. Across the course of the year, we may occasionally seek the advice of Panel Members outside of these meetings, usually via e-mail or by telephone.
Certification Panel members ideally bring experience of social enterprise but we are also interested in people who have wider expertise of ethical and good business practice. We are particularly interested in people that may have a background in education. Please click here for further details on the role of the Certification Panel and the current members.
If you would like further information, or are interested in applying to join the Panel, please contact Richard Cobbett, via email or by calling 07813 151234.
