Our dedicated Board of Directors provide
excellent strategy support and governance

Social Entrepreneurs Ireland is governed by a Board of Directors, all of whom are non-executive and drawn from a diverse range of backgrounds to ensure that the Board has the necessary range of skills for decision making.

The Board is responsible for providing leadership, setting strategy, ensuring financial and risk management, and monitoring performance. The Board ensures that the activities of the Company are consistent with its charitable aims and objectives. The Board of Directors are volunteers and are paid no fees or other earnings by Social Entrepreneurs Ireland.

The Board delegates the day-to-day operation of the Company to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and a team of professional staff (‘SEI team’).

Matters such as policy, strategic planning, and budgets are prepared by the Leadership team for consideration and approval by the Board, which monitors the implementation of these plans.
