Entrepreneurs in Residence (EiR's)

 This is the background text to our Entrepreneur in Residence posts. Ideally we'd like more women to get involved if possible! We also have no EiR's from the arts world .... I am happy to amend it slightly to reflect our desire to find more arts professionals - let me know what you think!

Thanks and regards



Worcester Business School of the University of Worcester is looking to offer the position of Entrepreneur in Residence (EiR) to support the activities currently in progress within the School in promoting and supporting Entrepreneurship amongst its Undergraduates and Graduate communities. The role will allow contributions to the curriculum through inspirational talks, mentoring support for new business starters and informing policy and practice in this increasingly important area of the University’s work.


The post is unpaid, though financial support is offered for help with travel and other expenses. In addition, EiRs will be able to access the University’s resources and other development opportunities free of charge. This position would suit an entrepreneur local to the University, who is looking to play a part in supporting and encouraging entrepreneurs of the future in different disciplines. Entrepreneurs in Residence will be appointed for three years in the first instance.
