Do you want to help build a world where everyone feels part of a community?
Do you drive reliable delivery and ongoing improvement of programmes?
Are you a strong and highly motivated team leader?
If you answered yes to all of the above, this could be the role for you!
We’re looking for an experienced people manager with extensive programme delivery experience, to set up and deliver key programmes: our children and families work; volunteering and befriending projects; and development of a vibrant calendar of informal adult classes.
Over the last three years, we have developed an extensive children and families programme, and we need to continue to expand its reach, ensure it is designed to meet local and changing needs, and to ensure the team delivers on our grant commitments. Alongside this, we offer informal learning opportunities for adults, especially around practical skills like gardening, crafts, ukulele and mindfulness, and a range of hosted activities including yoga, the local history society and choirs. Given the major changes in the last few months, it is a good time for a refresh of the programmes, and we need a fresh pair of eyes to help us take things to the next stage.
In this role, you’ll:
• Develop and manage our children and families’ programmes
• Manage a team, ensuring high levels of performance and professionalism
• Develop and manage volunteer and skills share initiatives
• Build and manage a programme of informal adult learning classes
• Contribute to the wider organisation as a member of the senior management team
• Report to donors on outcomes, and write funding applications
• Oversee space hire at both of our venues
This role is full time, with flexibility for regular evening and occasional weekend working.
The detailed job description and person specification is available via the application link.
You have a track record in driving the excellent delivery of grant-funded community programmes in the third sector. You’re an emotionally resilient and experienced team leader with a growth mindset and plenty of grit. You’re flexible, accountable, take responsibility, are highly organised and skilled in multitasking and balancing priorities. You have experience of fundraising and maybe other types of income generation. You have strong relationship building skills – internally and externally - and build trust and credibility easily. You are passionate about the power of community to connect and support people.
