Challenges Worldwide provides a comprehensive business development and investment service to SMEs and social enterprises in low- and middle-income countries.

At the heart of our operations is our Mentoring programme. We recruit business leaders and professional services experts to help businesses to grow.

Most assignments last from one to six months. They can range from developing a business plan for a small food production company that is looking for loan equity, to recruiting a senior management team for a large social enterprise.

See our current assignments here.

If there is no role that you suits your experience, please still apply as we are always interested in adding people to our network for future assignments.
