Experience and skills required
The Centre for Entrepreneurs (CFE) is the UK’s leading entrepreneurship foundation. We work to make the country more entrepreneurial. Our activities are grouped under four pillars:
In 2018, the Centre published ‘Starting afresh: How entrepreneurship is transforming the lives of resettled refugees’. The report makes a compelling case why refugees possess many entrepreneurial traits, how they can contribute to the UK as business founders, and how providing tailored business support can increase business survival, reduce public spending, and strengthen social integration.
The Centre has gone on to launch the Refugee Entrepreneurship Network – a global community of practitioners, researchers, foundations and policy makers working to increase the scale and impact of refugee entrepreneurship programmes.
To apply for this position, please send your CV and a cover letter using CharityJob before the 28th June. Interviews may be conducted before the application deadline. Applications without cover letters will not be considered.
