Job Title: Employer Engagement Officer
Language Requirements: Fluent English
Reports to: Head of Corporate Partnerships
Location: Main office near Old Street tube station, EC2
Hours: 37.5 hours per week
Contract: 12-month fixed term
This role is funded by the Jack Petchey Foundation.
Founded in 2015, Breaking Barriers is a fast-paced, start-up charity with a mission to help refugees in London gain the knowledge, confidence and experience to secure stable and fulfilling employment in their new home.
We offer effective and flexible employment support in direct partnership with businesses that help refugees secure work, progress into better jobs, and successfully integrate into UK society. We have a unique approach, working with corporate partners to help refugees develop careers that match their skills, experience and aspirations.
Over the past four years we have grown from the initial idea our Founder and CEO Matthew Powell had while completing his Masters, to supporting over 500 refugees per year. Our income has grown from £40,000 in 2015/2016 to over £1 million this year. Our projected income for next year is £1.5 million. We are a fast growing and ambitious charity with a unique offering in London.
We are looking for a talented and ambitious individual to join Breaking Barriers at an exciting period of our development. Our award-winning Academy programme provides our beneficiaries with unique 6-month paid placements with businesses such as Western Union, Allen & Overy and Ipsos Mori. We are looking to build on the success of the programme over the last 3 years and to develop more placements, job opportunities and other meaningful relationships with businesses.
The role is a unique one: it provides the successful candidate with the opportunity to work across both our delivery and fundraising teams, ensuring that we source successful placements
We concentrate on getting things done in a flexible and friendly environment where everyone is encouraged to take ownership and contribute. We are a team of 20 who are all driven and committed to helping London’s refugee community. We are looking for someone who shares our passion to join our small but rapidly growing organisation.
Breaking Barriers particularly welcomes applicants with experience of migration and/or a refugee background
Breaking Barriers is an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
