Job description

We are now looking for an enthusiastic and committed Programme Manager to join our existing Programme Team in September 2021. As a Programme Manager, you will be responsible for managing the Yes Futures programmes in our partner primary and secondary schools across our Greater London region.

This is a unique opportunity to have an incredible impact, by joining our ambitious team at this exciting stage in the charity’s growth. You will have significant ownership over your work, enabling you to thrive and grow your talents in a collaborative environment alongside a supportive, fun team of colleagues.

About the role

The role of the Programme Manager is to oversee and manage the programmes within a region of schools, which includes a mixture of primary and secondary schools. You will be joining an already strong and supportive team of Programme Managers working across our four regions (we cover the South East quarter of England).

Our programmes run twice per year, during school term-time. The cycles are from September – February and March – July. As a Programme Manager, you are likely to have a different allocation of schools each programme cycle, although we have a strong retention rate and aim to keep Programme Managers managing the same school relationships year-on-year.

This particular role will cover our Greater London region, which includes all London boroughs and some of the surrounding counties, e.g. Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Surrey and Essex.
