Job description

We are excited to be recruiting a Programme Manager for the North Birkenhead Cradle to Career Programme to focus on delivering the Community and Services elements of our programme.

Do you have experience in leading initiatives to overcome inequality or improve child outcomes? Are you well-practised in facilitating effective conversations between the community and local services, and bringing about change in a community? Are you passionate about improving the lives of disadvantaged children and young people? If yes, then this could be the right opportunity for you.

If successful, you will be responsible for managing the day-to-day delivery of the Community Project and Services Project for Cradle to Career at a local level. You will be working closely with a multi-disciplinary public services team and a number of third sector agencies serving low-income communities. You will support these groups in developing collaboration, shared approaches and strategic interventions, within an agreed framework, aimed at meeting the development, wellbeing and connectivity needs of those children and families deemed most at risk through a collective approach.

The role will be based from the Cradle to Career programme office in North Birkenhead and will be an initial 3 year fixed term contract to 31 August 2023.
