James is currently part of the team looking at ways social investment can play a role to support and strengthen communities to improve lives; helping make places which provide opportunities for the people who live there.
He also oversees a broad portfolio, including a number of our regional investments, community-based approaches, and social banks.
Before joining Big Society Capital James spent three years as a Management Consultant at Accenture and has also worked for a church and Christian social justice charity in central London. When not at work, James will probably be on a bike somewhere, or drinking coffee - or both.
James Burrows, Investment Director at Big Society Capital, gives an overview of how we are approaching our work in supporting communities across the UK, seeking to learn from the work of others over many years. This is the first in a series of posts seeking to share lessons and insights from our own work in this area as well as others – partners and colleagues. For more on what we are up to in this strand of our work please see our website, with more updates to come.
