‘A Place for All (PFA)’ is a Lambeth based partnership project, launched in January 2019 and funded by the Big Lottery Fund. The partnership is comprised of High Trees Community Development Trust, The Baytree Centre and IRMO (Indoamerican Refugee & Migrant Organisation). These three local charities, work together to provide a multifaceted service for socially and economically excluded residents in Lambeth whilst strengthening and creating models of good practice for the voluntary and community sector organisations. There is a particular focus on supporting lone parents, women, minority ethnic communities (including Latin-American and Portuguese communities) and the over 50s age group as the most socially and economically excluded groups in the borough.
After three successful years of integrated service delivery, PFA is entering its final year of National Lottery grant funding, and we are looking for a skilled Partnerships Manager to create effective routes towards sustainability. Reporting directly to the PFA Steering Group, you will focus on reviewing the development of the partnership and its services to date and creating and implementing a clear strategy for PFA moving forwards to provide it with its best chance to survive beyond the lifetime of its current funding.
The PFA Manager will act as the linchpin for PFA, responsible for creating and developing processes and opportunities for collaboration within the partnership and better integration of the services that sit within PFA. You will lead on the strategic oversight of PFA, as well as key operational activity to support the functioning of PFA in its final year, including facilitating steering group and operational team meetings, developing communication plans, joint events and learning opportunities that support the aims of the partnership and ensuring buy-in at all levels of PFA partner organisations. You will help maintain an environment of trust and collaboration so that relevant teams and service departments see the PFA as their own.
