Are you passionate about social mobility and helping the most disadvantaged to create a better future? With a challenging job market on the horizon for so many people, you'll be at the heart of supporting people back into employment through securing new contracts and the development of an innovative range of products and services.

You'll also be a talented relationship builder able to negotiate and engage a wide range of funders, as well as motivate and influence internal stakeholders including at senior leadership and trustee level.
