Area Manager for Outer East London and Essex

Young Enterprise is a national charity which helps thousands of young people every year to develop the life skills, knowledge and confidence they need to succeed in the changing world of work. We are looking for an Area Manager to join our team in Outer East London and Essex.

As Area Manager, you will coordinate projects and liaise with schools, volunteers and funders, alongside delivering our enterprise, careers and employability programmes directly to students. Coupled with occasional event management, reporting, and networking, the role will suit candidates who enjoy a varied work week.

We are looking for a motivated self-starter, who can inspire young people to achieve their potential, enable educators to meet their goals, and engage supporters in seeing the benefit of the charity's work. Experience of recruitment, training and onboarding of volunteers from community or corporate sources would be highly advantageous.

You'll be working alongside an experienced and passionate small team, with a 'can-do' ethos of supporting each other and sharing knowledge across programmes and geographies.

As part of Young Enterprise you will also benefit from:

  • A People-focussed, friendly and supportive work-place culture
  • An active commitment to equality and diversity
  • Generous holiday allowance of 7.2 weeks
  • Access to NHS top-up scheme, for money back on expenses such as dental and optical
  • Access to an Employee Assistance Programme
  • Cycle-to-work scheme
  • Group Life Assurance of 2x annual salary

This is a home-based role, but will require significant travel throughout Outer East London and Essex.


If you think you are right for this role, we would love to hear from you.

Interviews will take place with Mike Anderson (Regional Manager) and Claire Dever (Operations Director) via MS Teams on Friday 8th October.
