Job description

This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. We are on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week. We have recently agreed our 2020+ strategy and begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people and volunteers at the heart of our organisation.

The Strategy & Transformation team is looking for a great individual to oversee, implement and manage a portfolio of externally funded development and outreach projects. You will play a key role in ensuring that outputs, successes and learnings are captured and inform future projects.

The directorate has projects already underway and others in the pipeline for 2021/22, and we need an experienced manager to manage a team of project delivery managers.

You will be someone who is able to build rapport with staff, work collaboratively with country and region teams, volunteers, partners and funders really quickly and manage complex relationships.

You will be experienced and confident in overseeing large budgets and supporting the preparation of future funding bids for strategic growth projects. Working collaboratively with the fundraising team, you will shape projects from the outset against our new Girlguiding strategy 2020.

Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change. While Girlguiding’s young members may be women only, our staff team is mixed gender. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds.

We are committed to supporting our staff to achieve a good work-life balance and offer flexible working options wherever we reasonably can. Girlguiding is a COVID secure employer, providing support for all employees during the current pandemic. All staff are required to carry out our online health and safety training and complete a DSE risk assessment to ensure we can provide the support you require.

We ask that you submit your CV and supporting information as soon as possible as we reserve the right to close vacancies at any time, when we have received sufficient applications. 

It is important that you submit all of the above documents with your CV, including the declaration form, supporting statement and diversity questionnaire. We will consider only those applications that include these completed documents.

Interviews will be held remotely during the pandemic.
