Director of Programmes
London Youth, together with our network of over 450 community organisations, creates opportunities for tens of thousands of young people every year. With local authority funding greatly reduced and activities for young people being lost as a direct result, it is more important than ever to invest in our network, youth workers and the young people they support.
This is a pivotal and demanding time for young Londoners and London Youth is looking for outstanding candidates to join our senior leadership team as Director of Programmes.
In this values-led and collaborative charity, you’ll be working with a vibrant senior team, a committed and active Trustee Board, skilled and qualified leadership team (our Heads of) and outstanding Programmes teams. With a positive and flexible attitude and strong commitment to supporting excellence across all our work, your aim will be to grow and diversity our Programmes to reach 6000 young people by 2020.
The Director of Programmes is a vital, senior and strategic role that will further develop our programmes strategy and contribute to the ongoing development of our long-term vision. You will drive development to ensure we achieve real impact with young people and make the organisations taking part in our programmes stronger.
You might come from the not-for-profit, public or private sectors. Wherever you come from you’ll be as excited about this opportunity as we are and we look forward to hearing from you.
London Youth embraces equality, diversity and inclusion. We are committed to the ongoing development and building of a team that values and represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills.
We value employee wellbeing and promote healthy work-life balance initiatives and proposals.
