Director of enterprise, National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO)
Richard Williams is director of enterprise for the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), in charge of generating income through memberships and developing new products and services.
He joined the NCVO in 2006 from environmental volunteering charity BTCV where he was group development director.
He is also founder and trustee of Wandsworth Youth Enterprise Centre (WYEC), a resource for young entrepreneurs wishing to set up a business venture, and chair of subsidiary Enterprise Development Worldwide, a community interest company that is undertaking consultancy in enterprise development.
Although Williams has been working in the voluntary sector for most of his career, he also spent seven years in the private sector as the manager of a couple of businesses.
He has a certificate in industrial management and a diploma in management studies, and in 2003 gained a certificate in cross-sector partnership from Cambridge University.
While at NCVO he helped to spearhead the launch of CaSE Insurance and Trustees Unlimited.
Williams is involved in many non-profit organisations outside of his day job: he has been a director of the Social Enterprise Coalition and of the Fundraising Standards Board, is a trustee of Maasai Education Discovery (MED), a patron of the Minorities of Europe (MoE), and remains an ambassador for BTCV.
