Can you help an ambitious charity scale its services and social impact over the next three years?  Build Up is recruiting a Programme Manager.

You’ll be joining an award-winning charity that supports young people to shape their local area. On our practical construction projects, young people design and build permanent, high-quality and accessible spaces for local communities.

Who you are

We’re looking for someone who can understand the needs of small growing organisations, set up new systems and build operational capacity. You’ll be proactive, have solid experience in project management and business development and care about our organisation’s mission. As well as being able to think strategically and be highly organised, you’ll have an approach that is practical, friendly and flexible.

The role

You’ll be responsible for managing Build Up’s year-round programme, as well as setting up new projects and developing new business opportunities. You’ll work closely with our design and construction project managers to ensure all activities run to time and budgets. This role is key to our organisational development and alongside setting up new systems to support efficient working practices, we’d like you to strategically support our ongoing growth.

Who we are

Build Up’s purpose is to empower young people to shape where they live, and make decision-making in London’s built environment representative of its communities. We do this by running projects that put young people in control of the design and construction of permanent public and community spaces.
