Job description

We are looking for a Partnerships Manager to support, spearhead and deliver the creation of a highly effective partnerships strategy to underpin our organisational mission to positively transform youth employment over the next 10 years.

You will sit within the Strategy and Innovation directorate and will be part of a small Strategy and Partnerships team responsible for Youth Futures’ strategy development and implementation. As Partnerships Manager, you will lead on cultivating and building our organisational approach to maintaining strong relationships with a range of stakeholders, as well as implementing and overseeing the development of key strategic partnerships that further our efforts to achieve systematic change. The relationships you foster and recommendations you help to develop will enable us to strategically direct resources towards activities that have the greatest impact for marginalised young people over the long term, and to transform practice and behaviour where it is most needed. 

You will maintain a laser focus on bringing about positive change in the real world, placing young people and the stakeholders and communities around them, at the heart of what we do. You will be our resident collaborator, able to connect insights gained within and beyond the organisation to create new ways of working and generate lasting solutions in youth employment for the young people who need it most. 

Alongside this, you will support the Head of Strategy and Partnerships, and work closely with colleagues across the Strategy and Innovation directorate and across the organisation. You will also develop and maintain excellent and wide-ranging relationships with external stakeholders from different sectors, including representative organisations, young ambassadors, employers, and practitioners across the public and private sector.
