Role overview

Purpose of consultancy

This document sets out the Terms of Reference for research and a report to ascertain and evidence the connection between social enterprise and job creation across Sub-Saharan Africa. The work will inform the development of programmes for youth employment and social entrepreneurship and highlight to a policy and funding audience the value of investing in social enterprise. The research is being commissioned by the British Council’s SSA Skills and Enterprise Team in collaboration with the Global Social Enterprise Programme.

The commissioned research should explore the links between social enterprise and job creation, specifically in the context of Sub-Saharan Africa and with a particular focus on the education and creative industry sectors. This will support the GSEP and the SSA Skills & Enterprise in maximising the positive impact of its work and aligning with the priorities of young men and women in Sub Saharan Africa as well as funders, policy-makers and other stakeholders.
