Job description

Heart of the City is a responsible business charity which works with small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to help them to develop responsible and sustainable business programmes including a strong focus on climate action. We are currently seeking a programme manager to run our Foundations for Responsible Business programme.

This role is responsible for leading on the development and delivery of our Foundations for Responsible Business programme offer to SMEs based in London and across the UK. This includes account managing the SME businesses who are part of the programme and providing insight and advice, with support from our network of experts and corporate ambassadors, on responsible business and CSR issues such as community impact, wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, environment and climate action. Day to day activities will involve managing our programme of learning events including sourcing speakers, developing agendas and delivering events to SME businesses enabling them to stay abreast of the latest responsible business practice. 

We are interested to hear from candidates who have:
 - solid experience of CSR, responsible and sustainable business and in developing responsible business strategies and aligning these with organisational goals
 - experience of effectively engaging, developing and account managing client relationships in the SME sector
 - experience in delivering high quality events (in-person and virtual) which successfully engage and inform participants
 - the ability to successfully deliver and report against stretching targets

Any experience of membership management; business development in a commercial or not-for-profit environment; marketing, communications and creating promotional tools to increase companies’ engagement with responsible business would be welcome.

The charity has a friendly and dynamic but small team and is supported by senior business leaders as well as a network of responsible business experts. The charity’s co-presidents are the Lord Mayor of the City of London and the Governor of the Bank of England. We pride ourselves on our professional and high-quality work and we are always seeking to improve, develop and keep up with the rapidly changing responsible business sector.

This is an exciting time for the charity - we recently launched a new online learning platform and we are expanding our reach beyond London. We’re looking forward to hearing from candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds who would like to join our team to support us in continually delivering impactful responsible business programming for more and more SMEs in the months and years to come.

£36,060 to £40,750 per year + 28 days holiday + generous pension + hybrid working (typically two days per week in the Guildhall - the nearest tube stations are Bank and Moorgate)
