Job description

Please note: This role is based in the North of England and the Midlands and will involve travel across these regions.

As our Regional Programmes Manager, you’ll inspire and lead our team of remote-based Senior Project Workers and Project Workers to effectively deliver high-quality support services for kinship families across the North of England and some parts of the Midlands. You’ll do this by working in close collaboration with local authority teams across the North and the Midlands who have commissioned our services. You’ll also develop effective partnerships with other local authorities to secure commissions and generate income for services.

Your team will deliver the following programmes:

  • Kinship Ready – online workshops to prepare new and prospective special guardians for their role, as well as wraparound one-to-one support
  • Kinship Reach – remote one-to-one support and virtual support groups
  • Kinship Connected – in-person one-to-one support and support groups in the community

This role is home-based with travel across the North and Midlands, as well as other parts of England and Wales from time to time.

About Kinship

Kinship is the leading charity in England and Wales for kinship carers – relatives and friends who raise children when their parents aren’t able to. We offer kinship carers expert advice as well as financial, legal, practical and emotional support and understanding from the moment they need it, for as long as they need it. We’re always there to help with the complicated and stressful decisions that so many kinship families have to make, as well as to celebrate the good times.

Working alongside kinship carers and the children they raise, with their voices and views at the fore, we build communities of support and give everything we have to fight for each family and their rights, as well as to raise awareness of kinship care and secure better support for all those playing this critical role.

In return, we offer 30 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays (pro rata if part-time) and pension.
