BIS seeks 'entrepreneurs in residence'

Written by Paula Devine | 26 Nov 2012

BIS Minister Michael Fallon has announced that the government are looking for two Entrepreneurs in Residence. They want to bring small businesses and entrepreneurs in to the heart of government in order to ensure that policy decisions have the small firm perspective taken into account from the very outset.

There are two positions:

One for a start up entrepreneur, to share their experience of starting a business today;

The other for a more experienced entrepreneur.

They will spend a day a week in government, in order to raise awareness and understanding of start ups and SMEs and to advise on government policy.

To make this a success, it is critical that they get the right people.

The deadline for the search is 21 December.  If you have any detailed questions about the Entrepreneurs in Residence please contact Charlotte O’Connor – 020 7215 1558, charlotte.o’
