EXECUTIVE DIRECTORY VACANCY

The Global Entrepreneurship Research Association (GERA) is the umbrella organisation that carries out the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM): the world’s foremost study of entrepreneurship.

Through a vast, centrally coordinated, internationally executed data collection effort, GEM provides high quality information, comprehensive reports and interesting new insights, which greatly enhance the understanding of the entrepreneurial phenomenon – but it is more than that. It is also an ever-growing community of researchers who believe in the transformative benefits of entrepreneurship.

Currently, GERA is seeking a new EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Key responsibilities of the executive director include GEM’s strategic positioning in collaboration with GERA’s Board of Directors, (new) business development, global outreach, and strengthening GERA as an organization.

We are looking for an achievement-driven businessperson who has in-depth knowledge in the area of multi-national organisation development, understands research on entrepreneurship and has a well-developed understanding of different cultures worldwide. Our new executive director needs to possess international management and leadership experience and have exceptional networking and communication skills. He or she should be able to think strategically, assess options and execute actions taking into account present trends in entrepreneurship and its global ecosystem.

Competence in developing new and unique ways to improve operations of our organisation, to raise funds and to create new opportunities would be an asset. Furthermore, we are looking for a highly self-organised individual who is prepared to travel extensively and use communication technology and skills to work from her or his home base, as GERA is a virtual organisation.
Possession of a PhD or Masters degree (or equivalent) is highly preferred.
