Product Lead with agency experience

I run an agency working with non-profits. I have lots of business development experience. I care about helping charities find a partner that fits.


Advisor engagement

Each advisor will contribute 4 hours of their time:

  • 2 x 1hr calls with Noam
  • 2 x 1hr calls with Noam and rest of advisory group

There will be no other requirements in between calls.

What each advisor gets

Each advisor will receive £300.

This can be paid directly to individual advisors or to their organisations. If you prefer not to be paid direct, we will:

  • Plant 1,250 trees for £300 (using Ecologi), or
  • Make a £300 donation to a charity of your choice

Advisors get the opportunity to shape Dovetail. An important service that helps charities make good decisions about hiring digital agencies.

What happens after September

This depends on Dovetail’s funding and how we decide to manage Dovetail after September. Advisors could continue as they are, or evolve into a working group (if that works for everyone). We will talk about this together.
