Just Education Programme Officer

£34,000 - £37,000 DOE

Brixton, London

Full-time, 9 month contract

Role summary

We are on the hunt for a Programme Officer to design and deliver our Just Education training programme in Luton with skill, passion and originality.

Over the last five years, we have tested our pedagogy on hundreds of educators from every kind of background. As the JustEducation Programme Officer you will be spearheading the roll-out of this programme to the too-often overlooked borough of Luton, and be the driving force behind its success.

From designing the recruitment process, crafting the curriculum and delivering the workshops, to managing the wide range stakeholders and ensuring the operational excellence required to make the programme a success, Just Education will be your full time contribution to the resistance.

You will thrive in a fast paced, start-up environment, be highly motivated, have a sky-high standard for yourself and others and be able to get a bit thrifty/DIY when needed. We’re seeking someone creative, ambitious, charismatic and determined, someone who has a track record of designing and delivering outstanding training and programmes which leave their participants transformed. You will have a strong moral compass, experience of fighting oppression, and a proven commitment to building the capacity of educators to challenge the injustice around them – and in their own heads and hearts.

This is a full-time role for nine months, with the potential for roll-on into a full-time position.
