Job description

Development Officer (Maternity Cover)

Reporting to:          Development Manager

Location:                Flexible

Salary:                   £32,542 - £33,518 pro rata dependent on skills & experience +5% pension

Hours:                    0.6 FTE

Contract:               Fixed Term (9 Months)


We can’t fix issues like poverty, climate change and ill-health alone. That’s why the School for Social Entrepreneurs exists. SSE helps 1,000 people a year develop the skills, strengths and networks they need to tackle society’s biggest problems. It runs courses that equip people to start, scale and strengthen organisations that make a positive difference. But it is not a traditional school. Learning with SSE is inspiring, action-based and accessible. SSE supports people in other ways too, such as funding and mentoring.


But this doesn’t happen by magic. We need to identify the opportunities and build the funding partnerships that enable us to achieve our impact. And maintain and grow these relationships over time. That’s where you come in. We are seeking a Development Officer for a maternity cover to join our team and grow our impact further.


You will succeed in the role if you believe in the potential of social entrepreneurship to create social change, if you are excited about identifying new opportunities for SSE to grow our work across the country, and if you are an organised and dedicated individual, ready to apply your skills to this role.


These roles are an ideal opportunity for somebody with some relevant experience, who is looking to develop skills and experience within the social enterprise sector and/or in a development role.


Our commitment to inclusion


Diversity is a fact of life. Inclusion is a choice and a practice – for organisations and individuals. At the School for Social Entrepreneurs, our aim is to drive inclusion into every area and activity of what we do: from access to programmes, to grant investment, to board, staff and partnerships.


However you identify, we would like to hear from you. In our commitment to continue to diversify our teams, freelance staff and programmes, we are particularly keen to hear from those who identify as: being from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds; LGBTQ+; and those with disabilities.


To apply, please see details in the enclosed application pack.


Closing date: Midday on 4th August 2020.

Please download the pack and follow the instructions under ‘how to apply’, which includes a link to a google form that you will need to complete’.
