  • Manage, support and develop the Programmes and Impact Assistant and stewardship of the corporate partners

You will have considerable scope to develop and expand the programme, continuing work to streamline and improve processes, data, impact measurement and participant experience. You will be an enthusiastic, and an ambitious champion and ambassador for the programme, able and willing to promote and raise the programmes’ profile successfully. You’ll be an effective, passionate, and thoughtful communicator about the work the charity does, and the needs it seeks to address.

You will have:

  • Demonstrable interest in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and in how businesses can be supported to achieve social impact

  • Effective management or co-ordination of committees – or experience of achieving positive results within significant stakeholder meetings
  • Promotion and presentation of services through strong and persuasive communication
