(Consideration will be given to first employees or C-suite roles with the background and experience outlined above).
An experienced manager to lead a high-performing team to deliver all entrepreneurial support programmes from early stage to those designed to support growth and scaling companies.
A champion of innovation who is passionate about creating entrepreneurship opportunities for all people regardless of backgrounds and supporting them as they turn their ideas into sustainable and high-growth potential start-ups.

Catalyst is seeking a Head of Entrepreneurship to lead the Programme team responsible for the successful delivery of all entrepreneurial programmes focused on creating opportunities for new entrepreneurs and supporting the growth and success of start-ups. In addition to managing across programmes, this individual would be tasked to lead Catalyst’s entrepreneur support, which is centred on the Connect methodology, a volunteer platform to support entrepreneurs.
