The group are expected to step into the roles in the coming weeks.
Former employees of Social Enterprise Network Scotland (SENScot) are to take up key roles at Social Enterprise Scotland (SES) as it looks to become a more prominent voice in the sector.
Kim Wallace, previously deputy director of SENScot, has been appointed as the new director of membership for SES.
She will have specific remits for developing and refining the body’s membership offer as it begins its evolution to become a single voice for the sector in Scotland.
The independent membership-led organisation was chosen by the Scottish Government for the role of Single Enhanced Intermediary (SEI), and it will act as a growing, strong and inclusive voice for social enterprises around the country.
Kim will be joined by Jayne Chappell, who will take up the post of membership manager, and Janice Nicol, who is becoming the business and enterprise manager for SES.
Georgie Price will also join after previously working at SENScot. She will become the new SES policy officer to help influence and campaign on issues of importance to members.
All four are expected to join SES in the coming weeks.
Chris Martin, chief executive of Social Enterprise Scotland, said: “We are delighted to welcome Kim Wallace, Jayne Chappell, Janice Nicol and Georgie Price to the SES team in the coming weeks.
“I know that they will make a fantastic contribution to the SEI, and we are all excited to see how the collective strength of the new team will positively impact the sector and the communities we serve.
“This demonstrates our commitment to continuity of service and our openness to listen to what is needed going forward.
“We hope to build a broad consensus across the sector in Scotland and we believe the SEI will ultimately give all social enterprises a stronger, collective voice.”
Kim, who has over two decades of experience working in the third sector, will take the lead on shaping the SES membership offer and relationship going forward.
The new SEI is being overseen by a Transition Group (TG), which has a six-month remit and will report back with recommendations that will be published in full.
Kim Wallace said: “I’m pleased to be taking up this important role with Social Enterprise Scotland.
“I hope my involvement – along with my former colleagues from SENScot – will help build consensus and a new collective strength across the SEI.
“I am looking forward to reaching out to friends old and new in my role, and building the best possible member offer we can.
“This is an exciting time as we evolve to a stronger, more powerful voice for social enterprises in Scotland.”
