Job description

IPPR is looking for a Senior Account Manager to join the London Progression Collaboration (LPC) as it enters an exciting new phase in its development. The LPC is on a mission to make sure low-paid Londoners can secure better-quality, higher-paying work, and to make sure London’s businesses can develop the skills they need to thrive and grow. We offer fully-funded support to help businesses create great apprenticeships which meet both these needs, improving the way the apprenticeship levy works for the capital’s residents and businesses.

As a Senior Account Manager, you will work collaboratively across our small matrix team to manage relationships with a wide range of stakeholders. You’ll be confident cultivating new relationships, selling the concept of Apprenticeship Levy Transfer as a driver of social value and a valuable Corporate Social Responsibility tool, promoting progression and social mobility. You’ll skillfully steward existing relationships, and you’ll be equally at home supporting small businesses through their apprenticeship journey.

To do this successfully, you’ll need outstanding relationship-building, influencing and communication skills, and will bring an ambitious and entrepreneurial approach to this work. You’ll need to be comfortable working at pace and navigating uncertainty as we build the LPC’s future. And of course, you’ll be driven by our mission to improve the working lives of Londoners.

This is a unique chance to contribute your expertise to an exciting not-for-profit start-up, and work with a talented team. We bring a wide range of different backgrounds and previous experience to the team, aiming to create new opportunities for workers in London.

We have a very collaborative culture, and work in an agile way as we build from our initial pilot. Sharing the progressive values of our host organisation IPPR, we are committed to equality and inclusion, and welcome applications from all sections of the community. As a team working to address social mobility challenges and working with a wide range of stakeholders, we value the creativity and range of perspectives that a diverse team can provide.

As part of our commitment to flexible working we will consider a range of options for the successful applicant to fill the post, including part-time working and secondment opportunities. All options can be discussed at interview stage.
