We are looking for a Project Manager to identify and bring together volunteers from Livery communities and match them with groups of Catch22 Service Users who are seeking employment and/or seeking to broaden their life experiences.
At Catch22, we are proud of our reputation as a modern and progressive employer. Our 1,300 colleagues and 300 volunteers work at every stage of the social welfare cycle, supporting over 60,000 individuals from cradle to career. Our work spans education, social justice and rehabilitation, children's social care, family support, social action and getting people into work.
Four Livery Companies – Goldsmiths’, Skinners’, Haberdashers’ and Clothworkers’ –, Catch22 and TSIP (The Social Innovation Partnership) are collaborating on the Livery Pilot Project. The project will identify and bring together volunteers (Livery Advocates) from the four Livery communities, matched with groups of Catch22 Service Users who are seeking employment and/or seeking to broaden their life experiences. The project will facilitate advocacy, discussion, job related skills and employment related opportunities between Livery Advocates and Catch22 Service Users, with a view to broadening horizons, building on the skills and abilities required to secure meaningful employment, as well as helping match Catch22 Service Users to employment opportunities that may otherwise be missed or not advertised. The Social Innovation Partnership (TSIP) will be delivering the co-design, continuous improvement and evaluation of the pilot.
As Project Manager you will be responsible for engaging participants and advocates, setting up and supporting the facilitation of training, facilitating all group sessions, supporting the collection of feedback and working with the pilot steering group to develop and iterate the design of the pilot. Participants and advocates will likely be assigned to groups based on the dates they can attend and any interest criteria the Project Manager develops.
You will lead the initial implementation, delivery and risk management of this new project. The project will work closely with London based Catch22 Employability Services and involved Livery Advocates. You will be working with a number of internal and external partners and will be involved in promoting, connecting and building the service’s delivery model whilst testing this new and innovative approach to upskilling and securing employment opportunities for Catch22 service users.
You will be responsible for developing and delivering training to the Livery Advocates, as well as working closely with Catch22 Employability staff in securing buy-in with staff and service users. You will have responsibility for tracking Catch22 Service Users engagement, feedback and employment-related outcomes with the service.
You will also be responsible for reporting to Catch22 and Livery Companies. You will ensure that all safeguarding issues, policies and procedures are adhered to while also being responsible for monthly, quarterly and annual reporting to Catch22 and Livery Advocates.
Be accountable for the delivery, monitoring and general management of a high quality service in line with contract and organisational requirements, and to take prompt action to respond to any areas of underperformance or concerns.
