Ambitious not-for-profits are always looking to optimise their effectiveness, to maximise their fundraising, streamline their operations and to ensure proper focus on risk management, cyber security, compliance and good governance.

IT, systems and digital are key to success. Many charities engage in complex service provision, they have demanding process and back-office challenges, complex contributor or donor databases and, often, large numbers of staff. They may have multiple sites and diverse activities including retail, hospitality, teaching and care provision.

Increasingly, charities need to engage and provide services digitally. Contributors, members, customers, trustees and Boards expect best practice and thought-leadership but, particularly in this sector, an experienced IT leader needs to find a sensible balance and to ensure charitable funds are used wisely and risks are properly managed.

Client story

pennies

Pennies

“The Pennies vision has always had technology at its heart so, from the beginning, we needed a first class technology leader as a trusted and committed member of the team. Freeman Clarke filled this gap for us and have continued to do so ever since – their part-time model means the price point works very well and given us access to specialist IT expertise we could never have afforded or required on a full time basis. They have set technology strategy, defined solutions and helped us form technology partnerships, as well as contributing to our wider board discussions. Importantly they have felt like a core member of the team and coached others so we even benefited when they were not on site! Their approach has been pragmatic, attentive and focussed. They have had a pivotal role in helping us develop our business model which happens to be in the charitable sector and has already raised hundreds of thousands of pounds.”

Alison Hutchinson, CEO, Pennies.

Nacro

“Nacro is a charity dedicated to positively changing lives, strengthening communities, enhancing social inclusion, reducing crime, and preventing offending behaviour. With an ever changing social justice landscape, we needed to revisit all aspects of our strategy including the delivery of ICT to support our Staff and our Service Users. Lacking suitable internal resource, we spoke with Freeman Clarke and they seconded a Principal to take over as Head of ICT on a part-time basis. Since then, he has been working with the Executive Leadership Team, Senior Managers and the ICT Team to reposition ICT to better support the charity in a more cost effective manner. Apart from contributing to the overall business and cost reduction strategy, a significant amount of work has been done within ICT to make it more flexible, enhance mobility with our frontline workers and enable the charity to better understand and report on its outcomes.”

Jacob Tas, Chief Executive, Nacro.

The Big Life Group

David provided invaluable, thought provoking support during our tender process to transition our VDI managed service to a new supplier. As part of Freeman Clarke’s North West team David provided truly independent advice – a trusted partner I would have no hesitation in recommending to other potential clients in need of part-time IT Director support.”

Cazz Ward, Assistant Director, The Big Life Group.

The Spring Partnership Trust

“Getting the best IT in place to support the organisation is a vital part of our strategy to deliver better pupil outcomes. We needed expert IT leadership and Freeman Clarke were able to provide that. David worked with our leadership team and has quickly understood our organisation, developing a specification for our IT needs.”

Jo also commented that;

“He ran a process to consolidate our multiple IT suppliers which gives us the IT support we need, with vastly improved service levels and better value for money. David has also developed an IT supplier partnership to help develop and deliver ICT strategy consistently across all the schools in the Trust.”

Jo Brinkley – CEO, The Spring Partnership Trust
