Community Development Manager - SEND
Prospectus is pleased to be collaborating with HCT Group, an award winning social enterprise which uses the power of business to achieve positive social impact. In 2017, they rolled out their first Social Impact Bond (SIB) funded travel-training programme and are currently mobilising in two further areas. At this exciting time for the organisation, they are currently looking to recruit an Independent Travel Manager to implement and manage their newest programme in Surrey.
As their Independent Travel Manager, you will be responsible for developing, implementing and managing their new travel-training programme across Surrey. This is a new and innovative service, using a payment-by-results approach and as such, you will be required to develop strong relationships with key stakeholders including schools, commissioners, investors, Government funders and local organisations. Focused on achieving a positive impact on the independence and potential life chances of vulnerable young people, you will be responsible for the successful start-up of the programme as well as recruiting, managing and supporting a team to deliver it.
To be considered for this role, you will be a strong project manager, with experience of implementing and managing community-based programmes combined with experience of managing multiple deadlines and relationships with key stakeholders. With previous experience of working with people with special education needs and disabilities or other vulnerable groups, you will possess a proven ability of successfully developing and delivering training programmes as well as having demonstrable experience of managing a team and budget. Due to the location of the role, access to a car is desirable as is the awareness of disability issues in a travel context.
