There has never been a more exciting time to join the HEY Smile Foundation team. Our work spans across the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector (VCSE), as well as connecting opportunities with the private and public sector.

We are connected, joining assets to community knowledge, creativity and inspiration. We are helping VCSE organisations of all shapes and sizes be heard and play a part in solutions, not just highlight community problems.

We have grown significantly in the last 11 years but are still agile enough to respond to the community’s need, not prescribe the same methodology ‘because that’s what has always been done’.

We are sustainable in our own right. Whilst developing others, we have ensured we had one eye on our own platform, securing £3m in assets and generating an average of £800k turnover a year in earned income to be masters of our own destiny and focus on the Wow not Woe in our communities across the Hull and the East Riding.

Covid 19 has provided us with an opportunity to share our way of working further, and in the East Riding we are seen as a community lead and the Go to Charity, now more than ever.  We are proud to say we now have the strongest charitable board in the region, and likewise we have a team of highly skilled and proactive charity leaders.

In July 2020, we welcomed Hull Youth Support Trust into the Smile family.

Hull Youth Support Trust (HYST) provide young entrepreneurs (aged 18-30) with subsidised office space for a two year period in order to make those first few years as comfortable as possible. Doing so should help our client’s businesses grow and develop in the future. This, together with dedicated one-to-one business advice and personal support, will give every young person the fundamental skills to succeed in business.

HYST will look to work with young people who have previously been; unemployed, under-employed, disadvantaged in some way or are totally new to the world of business. We enable every young person to take responsibility of their own future and are willing to consider anyone with the drive and determination to run their own business.

We are committed to working with young entrepreneurs in the local area, making their businesses more competitive and sustainable to weather these early, daunting times. With our support, we foresee a whole generation of young start-up businesses going on to further develop their ventures, creating more jobs and contributing to the local community.

We are here to support young entrepreneurs from the humble beginnings of business generation through to looking into the space available at HYST business incubation centre (OneSixOne). Once our young business owners secure office space at OneSixOne the support and guidance continues throughout their tenure. This then gives them every opportunity to become commercially viable and allows the next generation of budding young entrepreneurs to start their journey with HYST.

This role is a Time to Shine internship, supported by The Rank Foundation:

The Rank Foundation is one of nineteen funders, foundations and philanthropists who are partnering with the Government’s Community Match Challenge scheme.

The matched funding element is allowing for the Foundation to significantly scale the Time to Shine Leadership programme. Between November 2020 and December 2022, we will recruit and place 200 Time to Shine leaders, bringing fresh skills and talent to the social sector, to help future-proof its role throughout and beyond the pandemic.

Time to Shine is a leadership programme established by The Rank Foundation and is currently in its tenth year of operation. The purpose of Time to Shine is twofold:

  • To enable individuals with the right skills mix, talent and work ethic, the opportunity to experience a 12- month paid leadership and development placement in a charity
  • To fill organisational, developmental and skills gaps in smaller charities by identifying a specific piece of work that can be completed in 12-months

The programme aims to develop capacity and bring about sustainable improvements to the charity’s performance whilst boosting employment prospects and building interest in career opportunities within the social sector.
