The Entrepreneurs Network is a think tank which champions Britain’s most ambitious entrepreneurs. We are an independent, non-partisan organisation, and support entrepreneurs by:

  • Producing cutting-edge research into the best policies to support entrepreneurship;
  • Campaigning for policy changes that will help entrepreneurship flourish;
  • Hosting regular events to bridge the gap between entrepreneurs and policymakers;
  • Updating entrepreneurs on how policy changes will impact their businesses;
  • Making the case in the media for entrepreneurs’ contributions to society.

We are also the Secretariat of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Entrepreneurship, which was set up to encourage, support and promote entrepreneurship and to ensure that Parliament is kept up to date on what is needed to create and sustain the most favourable conditions for entrepreneurship.

We are a small team that punches well above its weight in the think tank scene. Through their written output, events work, and other networking, the successful candidate will have opportunities to quickly rise up, establish a public profile and engage directly with the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and policymakers.

Role

  • Assist the Founder and Head of Research in shaping and carrying out The Entrepreneurs Network’s policy and research agenda;
  • Author briefing papers, op-eds, newsletters, and blog posts on key policy areas;
  • Represent The Entrepreneurs Network at events – including delivering speeches and briefings to policymakers;
  • Proactively attend events of similar organisations to build a network of policymakers, journalists, entrepreneurs and sponsors;
  • Support and lead in organising events, creating descriptions, researching and inviting speakers, attendees, and sponsors.

Skills

Necessary:

  • Ability to write persuasively to a high standard;
  • Strong understanding of economics and public policy, plus ability to explain complex concepts to a non-specialist audience;
  • Excellent attention to detail and ability to work quickly and meet deadlines.

Desirable:

  • Past experience of writing policy reports;
  • Proven knowledge and interest in a policy areas important to The Entrepreneurs Network;
  • Relevant connections who could be useful to The Entrepreneurs Network (e.g. policymakers, journalists, potential sponsors etc.)

The ideal candidate will be highly self-motivated with a strong interest in public policy. They may be a recent graduate, have previously worked in a similar role, or have a proven interest in policy. Outside of their job, they will have shown an active interest in entrepreneurship policy.

The ideal candidate will not simply wait to be assigned tasks, but proactively identify new opportunities to drive the policy agenda. Most importantly, their values will be in strong alignment with the values of The Entrepreneurs Network.
