Job description

Programme Executive (Fixed-Term Maternity Cover)
Home Based (with regular travel to our partner schools in Birmingham and Nottingham)

About Us

Action Tutoring is an education charity that supports pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to succeed in school.

In the UK today, young people facing socio-economic disadvantage are less likely to achieve the grades they need to progress in life. This isn’t because they are any less able – it’s because they have less access to tools to support them to realise their potential.

We help to level the playing field by working in partnership with schools to deliver weekly tutoring in English or Maths, to pupils who need it the most.

We now have an exciting opportunity for a Programme Executive to join our team on a fixed-term maternity cover contract lasting up to 12 months.

The Benefits

- Salary of £26,135 pro rata
- Travel expenses
- Flexible working and TOIL
- 33 days’ holiday pro rata, including Bank Holidays
- Workplace pension
- Team socials and a culture of celebrating

If you are a confident communicator and work well with deadlines while managing others, this is a brilliant opportunity to gain experience with a charity that’s supporting the UK’s most disadvantaged young people.

As an education charity, we understand the importance of providing learning and development opportunities for our staff. You’ll receive a comprehensive induction and full training and will have the chance to broaden your areas of responsibility as you grow alongside the organisation.

Our vision is a world in which no child’s life chances are limited by their socio-economic background. If you share our values and want to make a real difference to young people’s lives, we want to hear from you.

The Role

As a Programme Executive, you will be responsible for your own caseload of programmes and managing two Programme Co-ordinators.

This is a home-based role with occasional travel to our offices in London and Action Tutoring’s partner schools throughout Birmingham and Nottingham.

Some of your duties will involve:

- Visiting schools and building positive relationships
- Managing and training the volunteer tutors
- Managing the pupils that use the service
- Measuring impact and success via accessing performance data

About You

To be considered as a Programme Executive, you will need:

- At least two years’ experience of working with young people, schools or volunteers
- The ability to manage and lead others, leading by example
- To be educated to degree level
- The ability to develop strong relationships with a variety of stakeholders
- Strong verbal and written communication skills with the ability to undertake public speaking to deliver high quality tutor training
- To be committed to ensuring young people from all backgrounds reach a meaningful level of academic attainment

Ideally, you will have line management experience or the ability to demonstrate a strong understanding and skills that make for effective line management.

Other organisations may call this role Senior Project Co-ordinator, Education Programme Executive, Project Executive, Education Project Executive, Charity Programme Co-ordinator, Charity Project Co-ordinator or Charity Service Co-ordinator.

The closing date for applications is 30th December 2019 with interviews to be held ideally on 6th January 2020.
