Search goes on for social enterprise ambassadors

The Social Enterprise Coalition announced yesterday that celebrities and well-known sector figures will promote a Government-funded scheme to recruit 20 'social enterprise ambassadors'.

Gardening guru Monty Don, Tim Smit, co-founder of the Eden Project, Liam Black, chief executive of Jamie Oliver’s restaurant enterprise, 15, and Tim Campbell, the first winner of The Apprentice, are to support the cause. Big Issue founder John Bird, Penny Newman, chief executive of Cafédirect, and Victor Adebowale, chief executive of social care organisation Turning Point, will also join the team.

The coalition, which has a £600,000 three-year contract with the Office of the Third Sector to run the programme, is seeking “exceptional, inspiring and well-connected” applicants for the 20 ambassadorships.

The deadline for applications is 15 August.
