Evan Chiswell

Executive Director Business Development and Innovation

I manage Humankind’s Business Development & Innovation across Service Delivery Units, our strategic growth, the development of new models,  and service types, and I also lead our Communications and Marketing team and their activities.

Professional Background & Relevant Experience

I’ve worked with a range of different marginalised and/or vulnerable groups, including adult offenders, people with mental health needs, male sex workers, people who are street homeless, older people and people with a learning disability.

In 2009, I also became a founding trustee of a charity called Survivors Manchester, which supports male survivors of sexual abuse or rape, and campaigns on a national scale.

How I Came to Work at Humankind

Since 2011 I have worked within Business Development roles for a range of third sector providers, including at St Martins Healthcare Services. I was ecstatic when the opportunity came up to work for Humankind, and I began my new role whilst St Martins Healthcare and Humankind were merging.

What I Enjoy About Working at Humankind

I am a proud advocate of our work; I believe passionately in the services we deliver and our impact. Therefore, whilst I enjoy Business Development and Marketing, there’s nothing I enjoy more than speaking to those that use our services and hearing about what we’ve done well, but also how we can make an even greater impact in the future.
