Job Description

The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations operating in more than 110 countries worldwide and has been in Ethiopia since 1943.

The British Council’s Global Social Enterprise programme, currently running in 29 countries and on four continents, draws on the UK experience in social enterprise to promote its growth around the world. We build capacity in the sector, forge international networks, and support policy leaders to create ecosystems in which social enterprise and social investment can thrive. Our work supports positive social change, inclusive growth and sustainable development while building trust and creating opportunities between the UK and other countries.

We have recently launched a three-year Social Enterprise Programme in Ethiopia, this builds on a pilot initiative we had implemented since 2015. The overall objective of this project is: People have the skills to be employable and to build inclusive economies which support stable and prosperous societies. The specific objective of the action is to build an enabling ecosystem of support that encourages the growth of social enterprises, as an integral part of the economy in Ethiopia.

Ethiopian Social Enterprise Programme works on three components:

1.    Government engagement and policy – We work with policy makers and policy influencers to create an evidence based enabling environment in which social enterprises can thrive.

2.    Capacity Building (Business and Investor Readiness for social entrepreneurs) – We support social enterprises to develop, grow and scale through training, mentoring and consultancy as well as access to funding and investment.

3.    Collaboration and partnership – We facilitate space for social enterprises to link into existing platforms and networks to facilitate knowledge sharing, partnerships and matchmaking between businesses and other actors.

The grant scheme for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) falls under Result 2. It envisages Higher Education Institutions in Ethiopia to be identified and supported to offer social entrepreneurship courses or embed social enterprise into curriculum delivery, allow students with experiential learning opportunities & employability provide access to facilities such as incubation space, and develop enterprise solution arising from academic research by drawing on the expertise from Higher Education Institutions from the UK.
