NEFers complete a 12-month paid work placement with a host company. This is an opportunity to work in a fast-paced environment and contribute to the growth of a scaling business.
NEFers have excelled in roles spanning across and beyond product, business development, innovation and operations.
NEF supports NEFers in finding a placement company, but it is ultimately the candidates’ responsibility to secure a placement to start the programme in September.
If I didn’t have NEF I wouldn’t have the knowledge that I have in terms of what can be done and how to really grow your start-up. I really don’t think I would be where I am right now […] I want to be the leader in improving diversity in corporations – I want to be global
CEO and Founder of BYP Network
Our host companies benefit from hiring someone hungry and entrepreneurial and from being part of our network. Some NEFers stay with their host companies beyond the NEF year and play a crucial role in the growing businesses.
Each year we select a small number of candidates who choose the self-sponsored route. They are early-stage entrepreneurs whose businesses require their full attention and are financially secure. Contact us to find out more.
