We are a social change organisation: we exist to support people who are stepping forward to affect positive social change, wherever they may be. We exist to support the many, not the few.

Join the team as our new International Business Development Manager. This is an exciting, unique post at the forefront of social enterprise on an international level.

For the past six years, the Social Enterprise Academy has been sharing our business and learning delivery models with international partners through a social licensing approach. We now have 14 Social Enterprise Academy Hubs at different stages of exploration and development.

We are excited that this model is working and that there is growing demand for our products and business model in new and as yet unexplored markets.

Working with our Head of International, you will be helping to increase our social impact by identifying major strategic funding for the International Hub network.

In addition, you will be leading on direct sales of our learning products in new territories as a way of creating a pipeline of potential new Academy Hubs.

As part of the international team you will work closely with the Head of International to manage the sustainable growth of the Academy’s international social licence network.

This is a critical management role in the organisation. We are looking for someone who is keen for a new challenge, up for working with vibrant, entrepreneurial and dedicated people and colleagues and has a good value-fit with our organisation.

Having the right mind-set, attitude and approach is as important for us as having the right experience and skills. We appreciate that the best person might not have all the listed criteria yet, so if you feel your experience and skills will help you to make a great contribution in this role and you have the right mind-set, we would welcome an application from you.
