Vacancies: Programme Managers and Co-ordinators
We’re expanding. That means the opportunity to reach many more young people. It also means that as well as the usual annual recruitment of new Envision Coaches, we’re recruiting several new Project Managers and Project Co-ordinators to work in Bristol, Birmingham and London.
Both these roles are like being a mini charity Director; they offer a great career-move for someone wanting to forge a path in general management or wanting to gain wider experience before specialising. The people who currently hold these roles in the organisation will tell you that the best thing (apart from their colleagues of course!) is the variety.
The roles offer a great opportunity to own your own project and be responsible for all aspects of it, from looking after your donors to facilitating activities with young people. It means that you can be a manager, without letting go of what you’ll love doing – working with young people.
Both roles are responsible for achieving key outputs for a cluster of schools. A Programme Co-ordinator manages and directly delivers all aspects of the programme in a cluster of five schools. A Programme Manager is responsible for two clusters of fives schools. They facilitate the sessions with young people which take place with adult volunteers in the work place, but delegate weekly sessions in schools to two interns who they line-manage.
The two roles are very similar, so we’ve decided to run one recruitment round for both. All applicants will face the same assessment process and we’ll decide which role they’re most suitable for.
The salary range for the Project Manager roles is £21,000 - £24,000 and for the Project Co-ordinators it’s £19,000 - £22,000, plus £3k London weighting. Further details about the roles and how to apply are set out in the application pack.
