About Eastside People

We are a community of experienced professionals from diverse industries and backgrounds focused on helping social sector leaders to build the capacity and impact of their organisations.

Bringing Change Together.

Our Approach

For over 20 years we have sought out highly skilled individuals from diverse backgrounds who are passionate about using their skills and knowledge to bring about social change.

These people are committed to advising social sector organisations as consultants, interims and mentors or taking on leadership roles themselves as senior executives and trustees.

We invest in our people supporting them to be the best informed, to develop their practice, and to share know-how and resources so that we are more than the sum of our parts.

Change that Sticks.

Our Track Record

We care passionately about results and what gets implemented in the real world recognising that the difference we make is the change that sticks.

We therefore build an evidence base drawing on our own experiences and lessons from 2,601 charity consulting and recruitment projects, so that our clients gain access to better insights about how to make organisational change sustainable.

We are recognised as one of the top social enterprises in the country featuring within the Natwest SE 100 of the UK’s 100 most impressive social enterprises and have a Foundation which provides an alignment of purpose with the clients we serve.

 

 

 

 

We’re only as Good as our People

Our community of brilliant, experienced professionals and consultants from diverse industries and backgrounds is focused on helping leaders from the charity and wider not-for-profit sector to build the capacity and impact of their skills and knowledge to bring about social change.

Our Values

We operate as a community of professionals with shared values and a shared ambition to help social sector leaders build the capacity and impact of their organisations. This is what you can expect from us…

Optimism

The social sector is rooted in optimism, and we share this optimism. We have confidence in the people who are leading charities and social enterprises. We show appreciation and respect, starting from where each organisation currently is, listening, taking a strengths-based approach, and thinking positively about future possibilities for our clients and charity partners. We offer challenge professionally and constructively but our clients always feel that we’re on their side, and that we care as much as they do for what they are trying to achieve.

Generosity

We engage with everyone in a spirit of generosity. In all our interactions we want everyone to feel better off, regardless of any financial transaction. We give before getting. We offer to give clients some free time or something of value first, and we may also give some extra time at the end – to go the extra mile, to make sure that the job is not just delivered but delivered well.

Collaboration

We are a community of professionals with a ‘contract of collaboration’ at its heart. We also partner with organisations across the wider social sector including infrastructure bodies, federations and networks, funders and investors, and policymakers, because we recognise that we are just one part of the ecosystem.

Pragmatism

Every client is different, and we are led by what will work in their context. We seek to understand what the client really needs us to do to deliver a positive outcome in the real world. We care about the long-term outcome of our work and its impact on beneficiaries. We are practical and evidence-based. We are concerned with the nitty-gritty of implementation and face up to challenges within our client that could stand in the way of progress. We seek workable solutions – because what works, lasts.

Learning

Learning is intrinsic to change. Our quest for learning is focused on understanding what makes change stick. We heed the evidence base for how organisations can effectively and sustainably change, and we work with clients and our people to understand how our work can have a lasting impact on beneficiaries. We seek colleagues who care about their own development, have the humility to be aware of what they don’t know, and who are willing to support the learning of the community.
