Job description

Future Men has an exciting opportunity for an experienced leader to become the Chief Operating Officer of our award-winning charity.

Future Men specialises in providing emotional and practical support for boys and young men. Through our practice-led services, we work with boys and men from childhood to 25 to help them become healthy, dynamic, future men. From structured school programmes and youth hubs, to individual one-to-one sessions and outreach work, we provide the vital support and advocacy that changes boys and young men’s lives for the better. We focus our work with boys and men who face structural discrimination and disadvantage, including of race, income, and community.

Our interventions focus on the transitional times in life such as starting school, getting a job or becoming a parent; these are the times when men and boys are most likely to encounter challenges and therefore most likely to engage or seek help. Our aim is to significantly reduce the number of boys and men, particularly from socially excluded or disadvantaged backgrounds, who are unable to achieve their full potential to become productive and active members of society.

The most useful gift we can give to young men individually and collectively is the gift of hope and self-belief that comes with finding the tools to foster resilience and navigate their own future. We work to enable boys and men to thrive rather than simply survive. This builds social and community capital and affects issues of poverty, violence, lack of education and aspiration for all.
