Head of Partnerships
Dated: June 2022
Contract: Full time, permanent
Salary: £48,000-50,000 per annum
Start date: Immediate
Location: Home based with potential access to desk space in central London, if required; travel across the UK may be required from time to time as part of role (subject to covid guidance)
Reporting to: Director of Strategy and Learning
Direct reports: None at this time
Annual leave: 25 days per year plus bank holidays
About the role
The Head of Partnerships is a new and critical role, created as part of our merger with the YMCA George Williams College. We hope the merger will see our quality improvement and training work grow, alongside extending our communities of practice and our offer to them. As such, we created a dedicated post to hold, nurture and grow our approach to working with and through networks, and to oversee our partnership projects.
Networks have long been at the heart of the Centre for Youth Impact’s approach. Built over the last eight years, we deeply value our relationships with our Regional Impact Networks across England, and are excited by the emergence of new relationships in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland – and indeed internationally, particularly building on the legacy of the College. There is now the opportunity to revisit our approach to working with and through networks, particularly in developing a more responsive and ‘tiered’ offer that reflects and responds to the needs, ambitions, and experiences of our different stakeholders.
The Head of Partnerships will be responsible for implementing a new network strategy, strengthening these relationships (including transitioning existing network leads to potentially new ways of working), and framing the support that we offer to network ‘members’ across the UK (further details on our existing networks can be found here). This will include scoping, defining and implementing our approach to supporting/collaborating with members of the YMCA Federation in England and Wales alongside building relationships with the Federations in Scotland and the island of Ireland, as part of the merger with YMCA George Williams College. There is also the potential to work closely with the Director of Strategy and Learning to consider new international learning partnerships.
Over the past few years in particular, the Centre has been increasing its partnership projects: significant programmes of work with one major partner or funder, including cohort-level evaluation, capacity building and learning partnerships.The Head of Partnerships will also manage a range of partnership projects, working alongside other members of the team to initiate, design, and deliver cutting-edge programmes of work. The post-holder will work closely with the Director of Programmes and Director of Strategy and Learning to ensure that we are integrating our learning from our networks into our wider strategy and programmes of work focused on research, evaluation, and organisational learning.
The Head of Partnerships will play a strong role in supporting income generation, particularly for our network support activities. The post holder will also contribute significantly to our communications activities, amplifying the work and voices of our networks, and offering our platform in contribution to greater collective impact.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for an outstanding candidate who is imaginative and responsive, with strong interest and high-level skills in building alliances and collaborations, alongside capacity building for social sector organisations. You will need to have an appetite for understanding and navigating complexity, with an inquisitive mind and interest in youth-focused public policy and system dynamics. An interest and solid understanding of evaluation would be a distinct plus. You will also need to be a strong and confident project manager, with exceptional relationship skills. We take a coaching approach to all of our work, so skills and experience in this area will be a distinct advantage.
You will have the ability to engage with humility and authenticity with a wide range of people and organisations working to support young people. You will be able to spot and make connections between relationships and areas of work and be alive to changes and patterns in the external policy and practice context and the opportunities they present for our charity.
Finally, you will be a skilled facilitator, experienced in both designing and delivering workshops and training. You will also be a compelling and confident writer and presenter who can communicate the breadth of our work. You will be comfortable representing us externally and acting as a ‘thought leader’: openly reflecting the evolution of your ideas and thinking, and generously sharing your learning with others.
