Head of Ventures

Come and join the award-winning team at The Entrepreneurship Institute, King’s College London.

The Entrepreneurship Institute helps entrepreneurial mindsets to flourish amongst King’s students, staff and alumni.

The King’s 20 Accelerator is an essential part of our work and we are looking for a new Head of Ventures to lead it. Each year, our accelerator supports the 20 best ventures at King’s from amongst our students, staff and alumni to start better and to scale, launching, hiring, raising investment, breaking through new routes to market and delivering impact. The accelerator is based in Bush House, Aldwych, London and is home to the King’s 20 for a period of 12 months, each year. We are currently finishing our third cohort and recruiting our fourth. Our support is unique, our ventures are awesome, and our impact has been award-winning. You can read about our accelerator and our cohorts online.

The Head of Ventures runs our accelerator, is responsible for cohort outreach, venture scaling, investors and investment strategy, partner strategy, our experts-in-residence, our events calendar and venture alumni management. The Head of Ventures is also responsible for our long-term acceleration strategy and will also be expected to be an ambassador for King’s, speaking internationally about our methods and impact.

We are looking for a candidate who is an expert in scaling ventures through unique programmes of support that genuinely deliver to required metrics. Our Head of Ventures will be a highly organised deliverer of slick, professional programmes of events for internal and external audiences. The candidate will need strong communication, influencing, people management and resource management skills along with a creative mind. Our accelerator has delivered outstanding, multi-dimensional results in just three years by making full use of the ‘assets’ that King’s has to offer, and we are looking for someone to take this to the next level.

The salary will be paid at Grade 8, £56,397 per annum, inclusive of £3,223 per annum London Allowance.
