• Pro-bono Advisory

    One of the most effective ways in which we can make a meaningful difference to our community is by sharing the professional knowledge and skills we possess as a business with promising social-purpose organisations. Through our Pro-bono Advisory initiative, charities and social enterprises around the globe benefit from free professional advice which aims to increase organisational resilience and entrepreneurship, leading to sustained and scaled social impact for individuals and communities.

    We help our pro-bono clients to increase their effectiveness, reach, and revenues, and to reduce costs by providing financial and strategic advice over the long-term.

    If you represent a charity or social purpose organisation which might benefit from pro-bono advice and would like to find out more, please contact community.investment@rothschildandco.com.

    Circle Collective

    Circle Collective is an innovative social enterprise that aims to address youth unemployment by getting disadvantaged young people into permanent and meaningful work in its two clothing shops. It also offers CV support, employability and confidence building workshops, mentoring and interview practice.

    Over a period of two years and a team from Rothschild & Co has dedicated at least 300 hours to working with Circle Collective pro-bono to help the social enterprise develop a sound basis from which to expand and open more stores, thereby increasing the number of young people it is able to help.

    The team's input has included production of a detailed financial analysis; developing KPIs to create a better understanding of the profitability of each shop; developing pitch documents for potential suppliers and sponsors to help clarify the charity's objectives and price points; and working on creating a clearer brand and an online marketing presence. 

    "The professional support we have received from Rothschild & Co has helped to create a solid financial model, increased our sales and has allowed us to access up to date financial information. Their ongoing support has put us in a position to achieve sustainability and plan our scaling up."
    CEO, Circle Collective
