Growing Diverse Talent
Alumni Programme Manager (South)
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 South, 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, build more partnerships and grow our pool of school members.
You will be situated in London or the South East, allowing you to easily reach schools in the region. We are currently mainly home working. Pre-pandemic we had three permanent office spaces, though we are presently working remotely and using touch down space while we allow things to settle back to a more normal position. We will be reviewing the charity’s requirements and consulting staff on preferences in the Autumn and it is likely that we will take a base in London and Manchester at some time after that.
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.
In return, we offer you a supportive working environment with plenty of learning and development opportunities. You’ll work with dedicated, determined colleagues and witness the tangible difference our work makes to the lives of young people across the region. We live by our values of social justice, collaboration, innovation and role models. If these values resonate with you, we’d love to hear from you!
