An initiative of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, Map the System is a global competition that challenges students to think differently about social and environmental change. Tackling global challenges starts with understanding a problem and its wider context, rather than jumping straight into a business plan or an idea for a quick fix. Students identify a social or environmental issue they care about and work together to explore, probe, and research all the connecting elements and factors around it. Students compete to present their findings at a Global Final event in Oxford.
An explosion of interest in Map The System’s novel approach has fuelled the programme’s rapid growth. Engaging over 1,100 groups of students at 34 universities worldwide in 2019, the programme is expanding by over 50% annually. The Programme Manager for Map the System will play a leading role in the programme’s continued growth and impact.
The Programme Manager will be an integral part of the growing team at the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, one of the world’s leading university social impact centres. The Skoll Centre accelerates the impact of entrepreneurial activity that drives systemic solutions to society’s greatest challenges.
The successful applicant for this role will have experience in designing and leading strategic, social impact-related programmes or projects, experience of managing budgets, be both strategic and hands on and have excellent interpersonal skills.
To apply for this role please submit a CV and covering letter by 12.00 noon on Monday 7 December 2020.
