Project Manager – Education (12 Month FTC)
London, E1

Are you a confident and engaging teacher, trainer or facilitator? Do you have a passion for raising the aspirations and skills of children and young adults? If so, you may be the Project Manager we’re looking for.

About Us

Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership is a leading East London-based charity that bridges the gap between education and the world of work.

For almost 30 years, we have worked in partnership with schools and businesses to provide fair and equal opportunities that enable young people to broaden their horizons and help them achieve their aspirations.

Financial literacy is now recognised as an important skill for young people to learn at an early age. We have introduced a number of numeracy programmes to equip students and their parents with the key life skills, including:

- The Business, Enterprise, Employability (BEE) Programme supports the education, training and development of young people’s numeracy and money handling skills, raising their confidence and aspirations.
- Funded by Lloyd’s Community Programme, our Abacus Programme provides workshops for children aged 9-11 and their parents to delve into all aspects of managing money, engaging financial concepts and introducing them to the working world.

We’re looking for a Project Manager to join our team on a 12 month, fixed term contract.

The Benefits

- Salary of £33,800 per annum
- 25 days’ holiday plus Christmas shutdown and Bank Holidays
- Great office location
- Friendly and inclusive environment
- Early finish on Fridays

This is fantastic opportunity to build upon your skills and gain experience within the charity sector as part of our forward-thinking organisation as we empower young people to ready themselves for the world of work.

You will have the chance to create a real difference in children and young people’s lives, giving them the skills they will need to reach their full potential.

What’s more there are plenty of professional development opportunities on offer, ensuring you will increase your abilities while helping us achieve our vision of educated and thriving communities.

The Role

As a Project Manager, you will develop and deliver the Abacus and BEE Programmes in primary schools.

Developing and designing session content for both programmes, you will hold weekly Abacus sessions. You will ensure that volunteers and staff are fully trained and supported to deliver sessions and workshops.

Your role will also involve:

- Managing relationships with Quaker Social Action, Lloyd’s and three participating schools per year
- Recruiting, managing relationships and retaining volunteers
- Overseeing the development of learning material, programme administration and staff briefings
- Amending the evaluation plan to measure financial capability
- Retaining our Young Money quality mark accreditation
- Seeking funding opportunities and partnership contributions from new and existing schemes
- Developing resources for partner schemes

About You

To join us as a Project Manager, you will need:

- At least three years’ work experience preferably as a teacher, trainer or facilitator role and/or working with children or young adults
- Project and/or programme management experience
- A degree level qualification

Ideally, you will have experience in fundraising or negotiating service level agreements and fees, but this is not essential. Knowledge of the youth employment agenda and the labour market opportunities for young people would also be beneficial.

Other organisations may call this role Education Project Manager, Project Training Manager, Teacher, Project Trainer, Volunteer Trainer, Education Manager, Programme Manager, Educational Programme Manager, Primary School Project Manager, Children’s Project Manager, or Educational Partnership Manager.

As part of your application, you will be required to submit a CV and covering letter.
