Emma Rosen


Emma Rosen spent a year working in 25 different jobs before her 25th birthday – from archaeology in Transylvania, tour guiding amid violent protests in Venezuela and investigative journalism with a national newspaper, to an extra in a star-studded movie, alpaca farming in Cornwall and assisting the British Council’s crisis team during the terror attack on Parliament in March 2017.

The 25before25 project aims to promote portfolio careers, highlight the importance of work experience for all ages and advocate for more diverse careers education for young people.

Prior to the project, Emma worked as a Civil Servant for the UK Government and completed an MA in Applied Security Strategy. She enjoys adventurous travel and mountaineering in her spare time.

Her debut book, The Radical Sabbatical, was a Financial Times business book of the month.

Absolute pleasure to have spent yesterday with these lovely ladies at @everywomanUK, I've found plenty of new role models!

Congrats to Kelli Aspland of @solar_buddies who started her biz with 4 children, 1 with leukemia and 1 needing heart surgery. What a role model ♥️

Love that there is an @everywomanUK award specifically for women entrepreneurs with young children. Female entrepreneurs get only 1% of investment in the UK.

Congrats to Judy Murray - whose response to sexism at the start of her career was "f*ck you." My kind of woman! @everywomanUK

Celebrating the wonderful work of women entrepreneurs with @everywomanUK
