Invitation to tender for a scoping study of the social enterprise sector in the Philippines

The British Council is looking for an expert in social enterprise sector mapping, analysis, and development to conduct a scoping visit to the Philippines.

The principal aim is to assess the current social enterprise landscape in the country and write a report that identifies the specific skills needed by social enterprises, the main barriers to growth and the challenges they face.

The report will also include an overview of key government support and regulatory barriers and information about key funders and social investors.

Additionally, it will also provide a roadmap on how to grow the social enterprise space in the Philippines and a strategic plan and stakeholder engagement strategy for British Council Philippines.

It is expected that the consultant will visit the Philippines to meet a wide range of key actors in the social enterprise space that could shed light on the various strands that the British Council hopes to focus on from 2014-18.

  • Minimum of seven to ten years of experience in social enterprise work;
  • Experience of conducting similar study in other countries;
  • Extensive knowledge of the social enterprise landscape in the UK
