We are a small charity but have big ambitions to grow and make our service available to as many people as possible. Our new Partnerships and Engagement Manager will play a pivotal role in this development and will enable more people to leave their legacy in song.
Our core work involves supporting people who are facing the end of their lives or dealing with a bereavement to write and record an original song. The songwriting process allows people to reflect on their lives and relationships, create happy memories in a challenging time and leave a unique legacy that can provide comfort and joy for years to come. We also provide some group activities and produce a podcast on songwriting and bereavement.
Since being founded in 2017 The Swan Song Project has worked with patients in hospices across Leeds and Bradford to help them leave their legacy in song. During the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 we made our service virtual allowing people to self refer and work with us over zoom.

You will research and connect with other organisations in the sector who may wish to offer our service to their beneficiaries, this could include hospices, care homes, NHS palliative services, Bereavement and cancer charities to name a few. You will continually monitor and assess the efficacy of our engagement methods and seek to make improvements. This could include individual partnership building with key organisations or individuals as well as wider awareness raising within the sector and with the general public. You will also work with the team to develop a sustainable business model for the charity to continue its expansion.
The right candidate will be passionate about the work we do and appreciate the value of music in difficult times. They will have excellent people skills, be an effective communicator and have a sound knowledge of effective partnerships between organisations. They will have great attention to detail, be self motivated, ambitious and optimistic. As part of a very small team you will have to be able to work flexibly and adapt to changes quickly. You will also contribute towards the growth of the organisation through developing effective processes and policies.
The Swan Song Project has repeatedly demonstrated a profoundly positive impact on the people it has worked with and their loved ones. This impact continues to ripple as the songs live on for years to come and can be played regularly through generations. This has all been achieved with a very small team and we are so excited to replicate it on a much larger scale. If you are the person to help us do this we can’t wait to hear from you.
It is important to the charity that whoever we employ understands and embodies the values of the charity. More information about our values can be found on our website.

Appointment of a Chief Executive
Teamwork Trust has a proud history over 40 years of serving the communities of North Northamptonshire. The leadership of Teamwork was historically shared between an Operations Director and Strategic Director. However, the recent rapid growth of the charity, diversification of funding streams, changing political and policy context, and operational challenges presented by Covid have led the Board to seek a Chief Executive to provide focus, direction and leadership for the next stage of the organisation’s development. Teamwork has undertaken some significant planned restructuring work in recent months to position it to address the opportunities and challenges it needs to address. This has been implemented collaboratively by a small group of senior managers who comprise Teamwork’s SMT. It is now seeking to direct the talents and energy of its restructured staff team to deliver its new strategy, while maintaining a keen focus on its values. The appointment of a CEO is the final stage in this planned process.
We are seeking an individual with drive and enthusiasm who can lead us into our new strategic vision. Candidates should have extensive knowledge of both mental health and social care sectors and a genuine belief in the importance of co-creating and co-production. Strong leadership, team management, collaboration and communication skills are key as well as experience in delivering meaningful transformation.
We are looking for someone who can act as a passionate and inspiring leader for Teamwork Trust, with an understanding of the issues concerning adults with disabilities and the ability to inspire staff, trustees and stakeholders alike.
This role presents an opportunity to work with us at a hugely exciting time, as our first CEO. Having recently recruited a new Chair, we are at a significant stage in our development. If you want to play a leading part in shaping the future of our services, then we would be delighted to hear from you.

Passionate, caring and trusted since 1970, KIDS is a national charity that provides more than 120 different services and works with around 80 Local Authorities across England in order to help disabled children and young people develop independence and achieve their aspirations. As well as working with individuals from birth through to age 25, we offer invaluable support and practical help for their families too, in environments where there’s a real sense of achievement. The work can be challenging, and humbling at times, but it’s also hugely rewarding and meaningful. Maybe that’s why our staff tend to stay with us for many years.
About The Role
Do you have a good understanding of the health and social care sector and its funding streams, plus proven experience of managing service planning and delivery and ensuring compliance with statutory contract and quality standards? Would you like to make the most of your skills and experience in the third sector, for a worthy cause? Then KIDS, has the ideal role for you.
As Regional Manager you will lead and be accountable for a variety of Regulated and non regulated services within the South region. Participating in the development and improvement of the region as directed by the National Operations Director and other Executive Membership team (ELT) to ensure KIDS delivers its strategic objectives.
You will work alongside the National Operations Director to provide leadership to a variety of services, and ensuring those services meet and exceed regulatory requirements like Ofsted and CQC will be a regular feature of the role, as will supporting the implementation of business plans for the region. Working closely with families and children and young people to ensure they’re involved in service planning and design and driving a culture of quality and continuous improvement throughout my client’s services – these are just two of the challenges that come with a rewarding role that will definitely give you a strong sense of purpose and achievement.
The role of Regional Manager South West is home based but requires candidates to be near Wiltshire or South Gloucestershire with regular travel across this area and Hampshire.
This is a great opportunity to utilise your skills gained in a health or social care setting, ideally as a Registered Manager, you’ll need a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Service and a management/business and/or finance, social work or nursing qualification. You’ll also need a proven ability to inspire, motivate and develop geographically dispersed teams and influence and negotiate at a strategic level with commissioners, funders and regulators alike. A track record of managing comparable budgets and resources is also required, as is experience of change management, including leading a team through significant changes. As comfortable putting safeguarding principles into practice as you are providing advice and guidance on operational management, you’re a firm believer in keeping abreast of the relevant key policies and good practice too, and have the self-motivation it takes to work independently when required.
Further characteristics are shown within the full job description, so if you believe you possess the skills, knowledge and experience we are looking for, we would love to receive your application.
Royal National Children's Springboard Foundation is a social mobility charity. We believe in the power that fully-funded bursary places at boarding and independent schools offer for children from challenging and complex backgrounds.
We are seeking a dynamic individual who believes, like us, that an increase in the equality of opportunities leads to increased equality of outcomes, and longer-term a more equitable society. You will be passionate about supporting students from diverse backgrounds. You will work as part of a small team to deliver a Department for Education contract to extend opportunities at independent and boarding schools for children who are either in, or on the edge-of care ("Looked After & Vulnerable Children" - LAVC). Children eligible for this programme include those in foster care placements, unaccompanied asylum seeking minors, those who are young carers and/or those with a Child in Need or Child Protection Plan.
Working alongside the LAVC Programme Manager you will help in the process of identifying, preparing and supporting young people (and their carers/parents) to ensure that they thrive in their independent/boarding school placements. Successful candidates will need to demonstrate compassion and experience of working with children and young people who are either in, or on the edge of, children's social care. The role involves significant elements of engaging with children and families face to face, often in their homes, and travel extensively to different parts of the UK, to assist with the application process to secure bursary places, the pastoral care and support that is needed to ensure the young person is scaffolded throughout their time at school, and to support the LAVC Programme Manager to build understanding amongst Local Authority professionals of the benefits of referring young people for the programme. Your organisational and case management skills will be second to none, maintaining excellent communication, empathy and quality support to the children, schools, parents/carers and Local Authorities that we work with.
Working within our Programmes Team, you will support the LAVC Programme Manager to coordinate all aspects of the Looked-After & Vulnerable Children Programme, with specific responsibility for:
- Liaising with Local Authority professionals, families and RNCSF accredited schools to support coordination and delivery of all admissions processes and procedures
- Monitoring individual pupils' journeys - processing and acting on data about their emotional, social and academic progress and coordinating multi-agency responses in relation to specific cases where needed
- Supporting LAVC programme participants to prepare for their bursary placements and become SpringBoard alum.
- Managing operational aspects of the “SpringForward” outreach programme - which supports LAC for whom bursary places are not available/appropriate to access other elements of an independent school education (e.g. in the form of access to University preparation support, mentors, music/sports facilities etc.)
This is a fixed-term role to September 2022, with the option to extend pending contract re-negotiation with the Department for Education. It offers an exciting opportunity for an individual to support a programme that has the potential to have a significant impact on a key social problem. You will join a small team of recent graduates and those with experience up to Director level - all of whom share a passion for improving social mobility through harnessing the commitment of the UK's boarding and independent school sector to widen access to their fully-funded bursary places and outreach activities.
We are currently working remotely due to the COVID restrictions with access to an office in Central London on a hot-desking basis. The job is subject to having the right to work in the UK and an enhanced DBS check.
