The Opportunity We are seeking to appoint an experienced individual, organisation or consortium (with a lead) to work with and support Power to Change and its partners during December 2019 and March 2020 in defining, via an informed and collaborative business planning process, a new Social Investment & Support Vehicle to service Liverpool City Region’s socially trading organisations and community businesses.

The appointed Supplier will support and work with these representatives to establish the social investment and support vehicle by March 2020. What expertise and experience are we looking for? To provide the contract services, we anticipate individuals, organisations or consortium that have expertise and experience in the following areas are likely to be suitable to tender, but we welcome any tenders that can sufficiently evidence the experience, ability and capacity needed to fulfil this role: • Experience of project management (including business planning, budget management, quality control and risk management): • Experience of delivering informed strategic future thinking for organisations and projects; • a track record in delivering market studies, research, and financial modelling relating to the social economy and social investment; • a track record of working collaboratively
