Job description

We are seeking a talented operations professional to help us reach more schools in disadvantaged communities 

The effect of the pandemic was felt the hardest in the disadvantaged communities we work in. Covid wiped out a decade of progress in improving social mobility. Our long-term strategy for supporting talented young people comes at the time when you are still 60% more likely to be in a professional job if you were from a privileged background rather than from a working-class background.

This evidence, set alongside the UK's acute skills shortage and ageing workforce, means that The Talent Foundry, with its partners, can make a huge difference in shaping young people's futures. With the right inspirational and targeted support young people can identify and access meaningful careers which will change their lives.

We work only in areas of high socio-economic deprivation. Every year we work with around 60,000 brilliant young people, creating and running programmes that are funded by some of the country’s major employers – Barclays, Dell, KPMG, M&G, the NHS, and Disney to name a few.

We also run a careers festival with a concert – Rock Assembly – which brings together 10,000 young people in Birmingham.

Over the last 12 years, we’ve worked with over 600,000 disadvantaged students from across 1,900 schools –we know how to help them build confidence in themselves and their talent and have the data to prove it.

We chose the name the Talent Foundry deliberately. In foundries, metal and other products are forged. Our goal is to help ‘forge’ talent.

This role and where it sits in the team  

This is a new role which will oversee the day-to-day operations of the School Engagement team and ensure they meet agreed targets for students and schools recruited to take part in our bespoke programmes that support young people develop the skills and confidence needed to flourish in their future careers. This role is key to making sure it’s the right schools and rights students taking part in our programmes, it’s not just about the end target. You will help us to make continuous improvements to our data analysis, engagement, and recruitment initiatives to reach those young people most disadvantaged by their socio-economic background or geographic location.

Within a small team, you will directly manage the Schools Engagement Officers and support the Programme Managers to plan and co-ordinate the numbers of young people we can engage in each programme. While you’ll be working remotely for a significant part of this role you will be talking to colleagues, schools, facilitators, and volunteers on a daily basis.

Supporting the Head of Programmes, you will drive operational effectiveness, implementing initiatives to improve productivity and processes within the team. Most importantly, you will ensure that everything we do is designed to support disadvantaged young people discover what they’re amazing at.

You are:

You’ll be a brilliant administrator who is great at gathering insights and evidence to implement improvements across a range of operational processes. You can balance competing priorities and keep projects moving towards their goals. You are motivated by working collaboratively in a team and comfortable making recommendations to senior leadership.
