Koreo is a talent consultancy dedicated to social impact. We develop people, organisations and networks to address the defining issues of our time. The company was founded on the beliefs that talent is the fundamental force for social change, that social impact should be part of all work regardless of sector or role, and that collaborative action is the only way to address complex social issues. We are best known for our national ventures developing emerging leaders (Charityworks and Change100) and our talent consultancy work across and beyond the social change sector.

Koreo and the Sustainable Development Goals

Connecting with Impact: We interviewed 550 HR managers across sectors around the issues of silo working, cross sector collaboration and developing talent for social change specifically around the SDGs.

Driven by a desire to identify and understand the gaps and potential disconnections in talent management and provide a framework for change, the report aims to allow Koreo – and other organisations – to create and drive tangible social change through successfully training and managing talent.

Charityworks is the non-profit sector’s graduate programme. Open to any charity, the 12 month scheme launched in 2009 as a small London pilot before scaling with the support of the Cabinet Office to become a national programme which attracts thousands of applications each year.

We launched Change100 as a partnership with Leonard Cheshire with a clear mission: changing the employment landscape for young people with disabilities and health conditions. The programme has grown each year, and demonstrated the incredible ability coming through universities, placing disabled students and graduates into leading companies in all sectors to great effect.

Good Women is a free and open network for women interested in social and environmental change, across any sector, role, organisation and stage of life or career. It was founded on the belief that women’s networks were too often exclusive to roles, sector specific, expensive, or just not much fun. We wanted to create an antidote to that.

The Koreo Prize asks young people to approach social issues in a way that embraces their complexity, seeking out opposing points of view, understanding that there is rarely one right solution to complex issues. We’re asking entrants to choose one of 6 defining social issues (aligned with the SDGs), and bring that issue to life through a story or series of stories. Prizes will include £5,000 cash, paid work placements, free learning opportunities, tickets to global conferences, and mentoring opportunities. Judges info

Impact careers, our upcoming venture, is a cross-sector development programme dedicated to tackling specific social issues in a systemic way (aligned with the SDGs). Launching in Jan 2018, the inaugural pilot will focus on Goal 5 (Gender Equality). Get in touch with us if you would like to join the programme as an employer.
