ExPERIENCED TALENT

Encore Fellows UK brings experienced talent to social sector organisations to help them build capacity and grow. Through short term, paid, high impact projects an experienced person (the Encore Fellow) is matched with a social sector organisation to tackle an operational challenge.

PURPOSEFUL WORK

Employers offer the experienced worker a new pathway into purposeful work as they approach retirement. An Encore Fellowship facilitates a productive transition.

BENEFITS COMMUNITIES

Local communities benefit from creating intergenerational connections.

Given shifting demographics and a future labor force with five generations working side by side, Encore Fellowships are a model for innovating using experienced talent to benefit communities. Call it an adaptive reuse of human-capital.
