Sheena is Founder and Director of Careers4Change, a specialist recruitment consultancy dedicated to identifying talent to drive social impact strategy across the corporate world and the social economy. This includes leadership roles in trusts, foundations, charities, social enterprises and social investment organisations, as well as positions in CSR and sustainability. During Sheena’s earlier career she dedicated herself to leading, recruiting and developing global sales and marketing teams in the fast moving commercial world of publishing, principally at Dow Jones/The Wall Street Journal. Gaining a deep understanding of the corporate business arena, she recognised the importance of effective leadership. She later used her expertise in driving corporate partnerships to connect major companies with grass roots social enterprises, whilst working for a social business, ClearlySo. She has played an important role in urging the corporate world to support social change through her volunteer fundraising roles for various charities.

Sheena’s top tip for getting hired: Send the employer a follow-up letter thanking them for their time, underlining why you feel you are right for the job.
