Programme Development Manager
Established in 2002, Greenhouse Sports charity is leading the fight for a future where young people are supported and empowered, whatever their challenges, through sport. We coach and mentor young people from deprived backgrounds because the crisis for children living in deprivation is real and it is urgent.
Our magic is the Greenhouse coach, sports coach, trained mentor and role-model combined. Over the last 2 decades these coaches have worked with more than 50,000 secondary school children in London to help them fulfil their potential.
In 2020 we expanded our delivery beyond London for the first time, launching a programme of work to support children earlier in their lives at primary school. This expansion of services is critical to meeting the needs of young people growing up in poverty today, and we are committed to continue expanding these services in the years to come.
We are seeking a talented Programme Development Manager with a keen eye for detail and data, an excellent relationship manager and a passion for sport for development. You'll have proven data analysis and problem-solving skills, be able to evidence successfully managing projects to time and budget and experience in managing external client relationships. You'll be a strong communicator, naturally inquisitive with strong interpersonal skills. There is a lot of variety day to day and the role requires flexibility and a willingness to travel across our Leicester and Portsmouth programmes, as well as around London.
In return we offer a competitive salary package, a highly flexible hybrid working model, 27 days annual leave (increasing up to 32 days after 5 years) plus bank holidays, a personal wellbeing budget and plenty of career development opportunities along the way. We have a strong track record of internal promotion and our growth plans mean there should be plenty of scope for you to shape your career.
