Project Coordinator (Barnsley, Liverpool, Glasgow)

Main Purpose of the Role 

We’re looking for a passionate, experienced, delivery focused Project Coordinator, to join our growing team. The Project Coordinator will support, develop, and grow our network of projects across the UK.  

Working directly to the Head of Operations, the Project Coordinator will be responsible for supporting local projects through engagement with our local delivery partners. This will include working closely with children’s centres and community organisations to support project delivery as well as identifying opportunities to grow the scheme with existing and new partners. The post holder will also be responsible for the development and maintenance of local retailer relationships including engaging with Market Management Teams, supporting individual traders and retailers who are members of the scheme, and helping to identify new retail opportunities.  

The post holder will be a part of our Operations Team made up of the Projects Officer, Project Coordinator (London), Impact & Evaluation Manager and the Head of Operations. The individual will work closely with team members, in particular the Impact & Evaluation Manager who will be responsible for developing and delivering the charity’s Evaluation Framework and implementing new methodologies for measuring impact.  

The post will be focussed on our projects in Barnsley, Liverpool and Glasgow and the individual must be willing to travel between the three areas and ideally live within proximity to project locations. The post holder will also be expected on occasion to travel to Brighton, where a number of key staff are based and where the charity’s main office is located. All costs related to such travel will be covered by the charity. 

The post holder must be comfortable working in collaboration with many partners and stakeholders and have good communication and relationship management skills. A structured approach to work and attention to detail will be essential to help support the work of the charity over the coming years. 

The Project Coordinator role supports the charity’s ambitions to achieve our Five-Year Strategy for 2020/21 to 2024/25 which outlines our aim of growing from seven projects to twelve by the end of the five years while increasing the number of families we support from 1,900 to 5,000. The post holder will therefore, play an important part in ensuring we can develop our operations to support existing project partners, alongside growing the projects in line with the targets set in our strategy and by our funders.
