Established in 2015 and funded by Sir Harvey McGrath, Cambridge Social Ventures (CSV) is a core element of the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) at Cambridge Judge Business School. CSV supports a wide range of social entrepreneurs to start, grow and scale businesses that have positive social impacts. Over the last five years we have directly supported more than 800 social entrepreneurs from across the world ¿ from fashion to farming, prosthetics to prisons. This practical support is rooted in the team's deep experience in the social sector, starting and growing organisations that make a real-world impact.

CSV is integral to the 'think, teach, do' cycle of research translation in the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation. Cambridge research informs our engagement with social entrepreneurs, allowing us to offer evidence-based training and support. And in turn, our work provides experiential learning opportunities to students and a pool of social innovators for research.

CSV currently offers a range of programmes throughout the year including three Social Venture Weekends, a 12 month Incubator programme, Leading Social Ventures Seminar, The Cambridge Prize for Social Innovation (Awarded by the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation and Trinity Hall), and outreach programs to widen access under the title Social Enterprise 101. CSV contributes extensively to the teaching of the MSt Social Innovation as well as contributing to MBA, the eMBA, and Executive Education programmes within JBS.

The Administrative Assistant will provide administrative support to CSV; supporting the Progammes Manager, Social Business Specialists, and Programme Director to facilitate the efficient operation of all work undertaken. The role holder works collaboratively as part of a small, dynamic team and will contribute to the delivery of the strategy of CSV and the broader Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation.
