Growing Diverse Talent
Alumni Programme Manager (North and Midlands)
We are a small charity doing great work connecting state school pupils with former students to show them a future that can be theirs and a pathway to get there. Hearing from past pupils gives students resilience, confidence and the motivation to study harder. We are actively expanding our reach to more schools and pupils, particularly those who are disadvantaged.
Alumni Programme Managers are our front line workers and you’d be joining an amazing and friendly team, with the opportunity to have your ideas heard and to take on new projects and responsibilities in time. In this role, you will be working with a portfolio of secondary schools and colleges across the North and Midlands, helping them utilise their former student networks to impact students in diverse ways. You will also be reaching out to schools and businesses not yet working with us, to raise the profile of our work and build more partnerships.
You will be situated in the North or Midlands, allowing you to easily reach schools in the region, as well as our base in Manchester once restrictions are lifted. We are currently working from home. We would particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates and people with lived experience of the communities we serve. We are an equal opportunities employer committed to recruiting a diverse workforce.
To join us, you will need: a desire to address social mobility issues; the ability to influence and win others to your way of thinking; experience of working with schools and young people, ideally through facilitating engaging activity; excellent communication skills; superb organisational skills; and an interest in working across the breadth of a small charity, including sales and business development.
