Switchback is a charity rooted in relationships, and nowhere is this more important than in our partnerships with employers who provide vital training and job opportunities for the young men we support after release from prison. Building on our fantastic reputation for strong partnership-building, we now need someone to take this to the next level as we grow and become a bigger organisation providing more opportunities to more young prison-leavers.
The role will involve reinvigorating existing relationships as well as developing a range of new ones across the public, voluntary and private sectors. A key aim will be ensuring that every Switchback Trainee has a range of fantastic training, job and support options. You will also be responsible for business development, generating opportunities to grow Switchback’s impact and income in line with our strategic aims. This will include exploring government funding opportunities, developing our external training offer, and establishing new delivery partnerships.
This role is packed full of potential for the right candidate to make a huge impact, so we’re looking for someone with the spark, initiative and know-how to really make things happen. You’ll be an outgoing individual with extensive experience of relationship-building and a strong understanding of the enablers of great partnerships. Given our strong local focus, you’ll also know and love London! You will be organised with excellent attention to detail. You will also have experience of business or commercial contracts and making the most of every partnership opportunity. Knowledge of the justice system or the hospitality industry would be a plus but is not essential.
Keen to work in a small team, you will be excited about the chance to nurture existing relationships and develop new ones to achieve Switchback aims and help our Trainees thrive. Above all, you’ll have a passion for Switchback’s values and what we’re trying to achieve.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.

Making The Leap is a small and innovative societal change charity that aims to make a big difference. From direct delivery, to advocacy and leadership, we refuse to stay in our lane and believe passionately that those we exist to serve have the right to be anything they want to be. To say that this is an exciting time for the organisation would be an understatement, as our incredible funders, donors, partners and supporters have given us the chance to move to the next level, and have further influence and delivery nationally.
The shared soul of the organisation is to be passionate about helping young people from less-advantaged backgrounds; build up other charities and community groups and want to partner with them or support them; want to work with businesses and organisations to get things done; and care deeply about addressing racial inequity generally (and anti-Blackness in particular). The people here work hard, are good at what they do, and for so many it is ‘home’, with an average tenure of 11 years. It’s a nice environment to be in, friendly, flexible and one that gives you the reward of making a tangible difference in people’s lives – it’s great.
The organisation has a number of strands: core Making The Leap; the UK Social Mobility Awards; the Social Mobility Podcast and our brand new initiative Black Charity Leaders.
