Interim management for the Soil Association, the UK’s leading promoter of organic food, during a period of major organisational change
The Soil Association is the UK’s leading organisation promoting planet-friendly food and farming, known for its certification of organic food but also for its campaigns, reports and work with schools.
The Soil Association’s economic model was shifting and it needed to look at fundraising in the context of overall strategy. That meant it also needed an interim manager of fundraising activities.
2010 to 2011
Roger Mortlock, former Deputy Director of the Soil Association, says:
“Our interim manager from More Partnership was in the office for two or three days a week. On the other days I was able to phone her. When she was here she felt like one of us. And when she wasn’t, it felt as if she was always thinking about us! She never gave the impression that it was just another consulting assignment. Sometimes she even had to remind me that she wasn’t on the staff.
