Isabelle Parasram OBE

Chief Executive of Social Value UK. Prior to joining SVUK, Isabelle was the Vice President of a major UK political party and a member of its Senior Leadership Team. She advocated on social justice, human rights and equality as Patron of a network for political donors, as a Board Director of a policy research forum and as a Trustee of its associated international think tank. She remains in the latter two roles.

She is a past Parliamentary and London Assembly candidate who later became an ambassador for the party she represented.

Professionally, Isabelle worked nationally and internationally as the Head of a barristers’ chambers and CEO of an HR consultancy she founded in 2012, following a lengthy career as a barrister in the public, private and charitable sectors. She specialised in advising C-Level Executives on how to grow organisations that are legally and ‘best practice’ compliant – as well as reputationally sound. She retains her practising barrister status.

A former civil servant, Isabelle was awarded one of only 30 places on a 3-year leadership programme aimed at preparing the next generation of Directors-General and Permanent Secretaries serving the Government.

In addition to holding NVQ assessor and early years and adult education teaching qualifications, Isabelle is a former Trustee of educational charities – including a grant making body – and a former school Governor.
