Interim Chief Executive
This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. We have much to be proud of in our one hundred years of history, but we know that to remain vibrant and relevant to young people we must continually evolve.
We have begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people at the heart of our organisation. We are on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week.
Are you an experienced project manager? Do you enjoy managing large complex projects? Can you author meaningful project documentation, track interdependencies and deliver communications that inspire and inform, in a really human and straight forward way? Can you lead project teams? Are you excited to use your talents to help Girlguiding meet its objectives and help girls have amazing experiences?
Girlguiding is recruiting for a project manager to drive forward a large scale creative project across the organisation. This important role will lead on the planning, delivery and overall management of this key project, working collaboratively with colleagues across our organisation.
This is an exciting opportunity to join Girlguiding as we embark on year three of our new strategy and portfolio of change initiatives. We’re looking for someone with experience of managing complex, multi work-package projects in a structured (ideally, creative) environment. Formal qualification is desirable, but experience is what counts. We’re particularly keen to hear from people with strong interpersonal, leadership and budget management skills who are used to driving the shaping of projects amongst many stakeholders. Practical experience of working in a creative production environment or agency is a bonus but not essential.
The role is based in the transformation portfolio management office (PMO) and will work across the portfolio, mainly on creative projects; reporting to the portfolio office manager while being an active team member in the brand, marketing and communications department. This exciting role is focussed on managing a large-scale transformation project while contributing to smaller portfolio initiatives.
Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change – improving attitudes towards mental health. While Girlguiding’s young members may be girl only, our staff team is mixed gender. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and do not discriminate on the basis of age, disability (physical or mental), gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex, and sexual orientation.
We are committed to supporting our staff to achieve a good work-life balance and offer flexible working options wherever we reasonably can. Girlguiding is a COVID secure employer, offering hybrid working and providing support for all employees during the current pandemic. All staff are required to carry out our online health and safety training and complete a DSE risk assessment to ensure we can provide the support you require.

Do you have proven senior level experience of project managing cross-organisational campaigns or projects in an income generating environment, plus an understanding of all of the challenges that come with it? Then join Shelter as a Senior Project Manager and you could soon be responsible for managing a programme of work that aims to improve our fundraising activity in the future.
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.
We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.
About the team
You will be part of the Planning & Project Management Team that’s responsible for improving our Income Generation directorate’s approach to integrated and cross-organisational working. We do this by leading and project managing major income generation projects of strategic importance, such as our winter fundraising campaign. We also identify and equip the directorate with the tools they need to make cross-organisational working the default approach to everything we do. This is an incredibly exciting time for us, not least as we’re starting the next phase of our strategic plan and have ambitious growth targets for Income Generation over the next few years. You’ll help set us on the right trajectory to achieve them.
About the Role
Your challenge will be to ensure the programme is fully integrated charity wide, harness the talents of the people we have in each team, identify new opportunities and work with colleagues to make things happen. First though, you’ll need to set up a cross-organisational project group to deliver the programme of work and set the terms of reference for the group. The programme will have three distinct workstreams, all of which will be interdependent with each other and also with other works teams across Shelter. You’ll be responsible for the sequencing of these workstreams to ensure outputs, learnings and deliverables are fed in at the right time. Managing stakeholder relationships with colleagues from across Shelter to ensure all teams are kept up-to-date with the project and its outputs will be important too, as will ensuring our anti-racism plan is embedded in everything we do. You’ll also play a key role in the cultural shift within Income Generation towards enabling us to feel like we’re doing the best work of our lives.
We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.
To succeed, you’ll need experience of coordinating multiple workstreams to deliver something that’s greater than the sum of its parts. You’ll also need a can-do attitude and the ability to hit the ground running in a fast-paced environment. Comfortable working within a matrix team and used to identifying, managing and mitigating risk to ensure successful project delivery, experience using project management tools such as Gantt charts, Airtable, RAPID and risk registers is also essential. What’s more, you’re highly collaborative, flexible, diplomatic and assertive, with good influencing, negotiation and stakeholder management skills. Crucially, you’re adept at switching between the fine detail and bigger picture and just know how to develop strong working relationships and get things done.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave (pro rata), enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, payroll giving, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
