NCEE Enterprise Associates

NCEE is entering a new and exciting period and we would love you to be part of it.

Our enterprise and entrepreneurship work continues to go from strength to strength.  Along with our long-standing Entrepreneurial University Leaders Programme, our enterprise educators training programmes and conference, we are supporting UK institutions to develop and grow their enterprise work and entrepreneurial capacity.  We have also just launched an innovative partnership in China where we will lead the development of higher education entrepreneurship curriculum, developing the entrepreneurial leadership skills of Chinese university leaders and establish 2+2 degrees with Chinese and UK institutions.

We want enterprise practitioners to work with us as NCEE Enterprise Associates.  Whether you are looking for new developmental challenges, want to engage more in the national enterprise agenda, build your international experience and profile or want to experience working with a different organisation, we would be interested in hearing from you.

We will reimburse your institution the salary and salary on costs.  There are many opportunities as an Enterprise Associate with many based around our new venture with China.  You could:

  • Support the development of enterprise skills for those working in higher education
  • Review enterprise and entrepreneurial activity in further and higher education
