Find out about how you can volunteer your marketing and commercial skills

Our social purpose programme enables us to leverage the incredible marketing & commercial network that we have built over the years and fully utilise the established resources we have available. We developed the agenda to have measurable results that positively impact our society and enhance individual personal development.

The work that we do to support the sector provides real-time practical solutions to very current challenges. We spend lots of time in the sector, consulting with charity leaders and listening to experts who have advised on key priority areas. Encouraging cross-sector collaboration and reducing the gap between the sectors is at the centre of our social purpose agenda – we want you to be a part of that journey.

marketing & commercial Volunteer network

This is a free initiative and aims to support small charities with limited budgets. The platform that we have created connects the marketing & commercial professionals in our volunteer network who want to give their time and skills to small charities. This much needed expertise helps organisations grow and achieve more.

trusteeships & Pro Bono Opportunities through Carter murray

We understand that a trusteeship is one of the most important voluntary roles in the charity sector. Building board capacity and skill set is a priority within the sector, and opening access to board members beyond the charity’s immediate network encourages diversity.

There are many small charities supporting unique causes who could really benefit from your time and skills in a Trustee capacity.

Find out more about becoming a trustee, and the five career benefits of trusteeship.

Trusteeships & Pro bono opportunities through carter murray

pro bono support

We believe in the value of skills-based volunteering and aim to offer a range of different opportunities that can accommodate your area of expertise, level of commitment and available time.

We can help you utilise your volunteering days, from short-term one-off projects such as support with CRM integrations, marketing & sales strategy and digital marketing, all the way through to free telephone advice on a range of marketing & commercial matters.

Pro bono support

Our space is your space


Due to COVID19, our London office is currently closed so we are unable to offer our space to charities until further notice.

We invite charities of all shapes and sizes to use our office space for external meetings, away days and events for no cost. This continues to be one of our most popular initiatives; we love the impact that this has on the charities we support. In the last year we have supported 35 trustee meetings, 200 training events and are saving the sector over £100k a year.

This is a simple concept that we encourage all our clients to embrace, if you would like guidance on setting up a similar initiative let us know.

I just wanted to say thanks again so much for yesterday – we had a really productive session and the room and lunch was so fantastic – we really struggle to find spaces to get out of the office and take some time to step back and think about things strategically like we did yesterday.
