Insights Manager

As Beam’s Insights Manager, you'll look after all of the numbers at Beam - everything from measuring our social impact to presenting financial plans to potential investors.

You’re analytical and enjoy nothing more than finding some nuggets of insight in a large data set. You love Excel (and are advanced in it). You’ll be fascinated by social impact data and how we can tell the story of Beam through its outcomes.

You’re passionate about tackling homelessness and excited about Beam’s mission and innovative approach.

You have experience working on the financial side of businesses, from high-level strategic planning down to detail-focused problem solving to make sure everything runs smoothly.

You’ll love a working day that moves from working with frontline staff and Beam’s members in the morning to presenting to senior stakeholders (investors, partners, board members) in the afternoon.


  • Work with the CEO on raising investment to support Beam’s growth
  • Manage Beam’s financial performance, including preparing management accounts, cash forecasts and business plans
  • Define Beam’s strategy alongside the CEO and COO
  • Measure Beam’s social impact, working with the member support team to analyse data and helping to spread the word externally (see our transparency dashboard to see what we do already)
  • Evaluation and monitoring of Beam’s impact for contracts with government and funders


  • Minimum 18 months experience in a VC-backed startup or highly-regarded corporate or SME
  • Totally at ease in Excel and a love of data, and a passion for using data to drive growth and social impact
  • Experience working close to financial management including business forecasting (although accounting qualification is not required)
  • Excellent attention to detail alongside the ability to take a step back and think strategically
  • Ability to creatively problem solve and truly comfortable in a high-performance environment

Nice to have (we don’t expect you to have all! The role is flexible to fit the experience and aims of the right person. But we do expect a growth mindset and a hunger to learn what you don’t know.)

  • Accounting qualification
  • Experience in consulting for a top-tier strategy consultancy or ‘Big 4’
  • Experience of SQL or Airtable for data analysis
  • Experience in raising finance for a startup or charity
  • Experience of measuring social impact
