The Youth Futures Foundation is a new, independent, not for profit organisation set up to tackle youth unemployment with a £90million endowment from the Reclaim Fund. We are looking for bold and impactful ways to help young people find and keep good jobs. There are over 750,000 young people not in education or employment in the UK. Young people are twice as likely to be unemployed than older adults in the labour market and BAME and disadvantaged young people disproportionately bear the brunt of it.
We are building an ‘empowerment foundation’ to identify practical solutions that work in a complex world yet are simple and cost effective enough to roll out across multiple locations, to reach as many young people as possible. To do this, we are now building our own inspiring team to help us achieve our vision.
As the Executive Assistant to the CEO, you will play a vital role in supporting Youth Futures Foundation to achieve our mission and deliver our ambitious strategy. You will develop and deliver a comprehensive organisational, administrative and management support service to the CEO, Chair and wider Youth Futures Foundation team. You will be dealing with a wide range of external and internal stakeholders and will be the first point of contact for the Chief Executive and Chair.
This role will suit someone who has experience as an Executive Assistant at executive level and would be excited at the opportunity to be involved across all aspects of the organisation to ensure we are operating efficiently and effectively to deliver on our purpose. As part of a small and ambitious team, the post holder will have visibility of all areas of the organisation and have the opportunity to really help with shaping Youth Futures Foundation at this nascent stage.
The successful candidate will have at least three years' experience supporting a senior management team member (i.e. CEO or Director), ideally in the charity sector, and will have excellent organisational, written, verbal and general project management experience.
The closing date is 11.59pm 8th June 2020.
