📢BIG LIFE/WORK NEWS📢— Rhodri Davies ☕️ 🤔 (@Rhodri_H_Davies) August 4, 2021
After 11 years, I will be leaving CAF in September. 😲
But in good/bad news (depending on your p.o.v.) I'm still very much going to be working on philanthropy/civil society stuff, so I'm afraid you haven't got rid of me that easily.
He said the role will be “both to develop a new entity focused on furthering engagement with philanthropy and also helping them with their own thinking on philanthropy issues, as a sort of “philanthropoid in residence”.
The actual job title is to be confirmed, added Davies, who joined CAF 11 years ago.
He added that he also aims to carry on podcasting around philanthropic issues.
Earlier this year Scouts and Girlguiding were handed £2m from the Pears Foundation to improve their recruitment of volunteers. This involves using technology to review and improve the experience of volunteering.
