Seeking a resolute and proactive individual to lead in generating, developing & managing project opportunities with mainly private institutions.
Making The Leap is a small and innovative societal change charity that aims to make a big difference. From direct delivery to advocacy and leadership, we refuse to stay in our lane and believe passionately that those we serve have the right to be anything they want to be. To say that this is an exciting time for the organisation would be an understatement, as our incredible funders, donors, partners and supporters have given us the chance to move to the next level, and to have further influence and delivery nationally.
The shared soul of the organisation is to be passionate about helping young people from less-advantaged backgrounds; building up, partnering with and supporting other charities and community groups; working with businesses and organisations to get things done; and caring deeply about addressing racial inequity generally (and anti-Blackness in particular). The people here work hard, are good at what they do, and for so many it is ‘home’, with an average tenure of 11 years. It’s a nice environment to be in, friendly, flexible and one that gives you the reward of making a tangible difference in people’s lives – it’s great.
The organisation has a number of strands: core Making The Leap activities; the UK Social Mobility Awards; the Social Mobility Podcast and our new initiative Black Charity Leaders.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
