The Skills Builder Partnership is an award-winning social enterprise. Our mission is to ensure that one day, everyone builds the essential skills to succeed – beyond just a set of qualifications. Essential skills are those highly transferable skills that practically everyone needs for any job, but that to date have often been overlooked, presenting a large barrier to social mobility.
We are leading a partnership that includes over 100 top employers, 450 schools and colleges and 130 skills-building organisations.
Our approach is scaling rapidly as we work towards system change, with backing from sector leading organisations including the CBI, CIPD and the Careers & Enterprise Company. More than 75% of secondary schools and colleges now have a touchpoint with the Skills Builder approach – and our reach is rapidly growing in other settings too.
To deliver against our mission, we are looking for self-starters with a collaborative, entrepreneurial approach; comfortable influencing stakeholders to make positive change, and with a passion for social impact.
In this role, you will be securing and maintaining the relationships and funding that make our mission possible. You will work with employers and infrastructure organisations to enable them to champion consistent essential skills development within their programmes and generate income through partnership development and wider fundraising activities. You will play a key role in achieving system change, harnessing the collective impact of the partnership by identifying opportunities for us to scale our impact and reach.
You will be able to speak and write persuasively and be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment. To deliver on this, you’ll be highly organised, managing varied workflows to hit deadlines.
We have big ambitions and your scope to grow, learn and achieve matches that. If you want to benefit from working with an inspiring team, with huge potential for learning, growth and development, we want to hear from you.
