The Brent Centre for Young People (BYCP) exists to improve young people’s lives so they can manage their challenges now and become happy and healthy adults. Set up 50 years ago to focus on preventing breakdown and suicide amongst adolescents, and working in the heart of the community, we expanded into schools in the 1990s, and work closely with the NHS and other partners to treat a wide range of young people.
As part of an ambitious new plan the BCYP is developing its senior leadership team with this new position playing a key role. The Head of Development and Communications will possess the professional and personal credibility to build confidence in the charity both internally and externally, based on a deep understanding of the psychoanalytic approach and ethos of the BCYP.
At a time when the mental health of young people is frequently in the news, this role will lead our ambition to reach and influence new audiences and create long lasting partnerships which enable us to help more young people. It will also provide necessary support to the Centre’s Research Department.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the leadership team of a well-respected charity at a time of not only change and growth, but when its work has never been in greater demand. In addition to candidates with charity experience, we are interested to hear from candidates with commercial sector backgrounds in business development, communications, marketing, etc. seeking to work in the charity sector.
