Just Like Us, the award-winning LGBT+ young people’s charity, is recruiting a Director of Volunteering and Youth Programmes responsible for leading our work with our cohort of 18 to 25-year-old LGBT+ volunteers.
Our volunteers sit at the heart of what we do, and while they are our programme beneficiaries, they are also one of the key mechanisms by which we achieve wider change for LGBT+ young people through their volunteering in schools, workplaces and in carefully selected media opportunities
Over the next strategic period our ambition is to scale this programme into a nationally-recognised initiative, supporting over 1000 LGBT+ young people and reflecting the diversity and strength of our communities across the UK.
Your work as Director of Volunteering and Youth Programmes will enable us to:
Hold responsibility for the Volunteering and Youth Programmes team including strategy and budgets
Grow our Volunteering and Youth Programmes to meet the needs of LGBT+ young people that are eligible for our programme and to impact on all LGBT+ young people across the UK
In the five years since we were founded, Just Like Us has trained over 500 ambassadors who have spoken to more than 60,000 young people, worked with schools representing 2.8 million young people, garnered widespread media coverage and won multiple awards for our work. The Director of Volunteering and Youth Programmes will join an organisation that’s expanding the coverage of LGBT+ inclusion work to young people from across UK regions, ethnicities, faiths, genders, abilities, social classes, LGBT+ identities and ages.
Flexible working considered.
