Youth Career Lead
We are looking for an experienced trainer to mentor and deliver essential employability, character and soft skills training to at-risk students.
Making The Leap is a small and innovative social justice 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 exist to 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 have further influence and delivery nationally.
The shared soul of the organisation is to be passionate about helping young people from less-advantaged backgrounds; build up other charities and community groups and want to partner with them or support them; want to work with businesses and organisations to get things done; and care 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.
The organisation has a number of strands: core Making The Leap; the UK Social Mobility Awards; the Social Mobility Podcast and our brand new initiative Black Charity Leaders.
Location – Schools and Pupil Referral Units in London.
The Youth Career Lead is responsible for delivering vital employability, character and soft skills Training to marginalised year 11 students who are in danger of not engaging in Education, Employment or Training. They are an important pillar of our young people’s journey, interacting with them by providing ongoing support and follow-up contact during and on completion of our programmes.
Young people from Black and other racialised minority backgrounds are overrepresented in the schools and pupil referral units we serve. We particularly welcome applications from those who could be seen as role models for these young people.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
