This organisation gets children and young people into school, ready to learn. They have been working for over 30 years, with children, families and schools to break the long-term cycle of deprivation. What starts as poor school attendance can become low educational attainment, anti social behaviour, crime, low paid or no job - generation after generation. They make a real difference and they are passionate about the role education plays in improving life chances for disadvantaged children and young people.
The fundraising team is small and hard working. Their contribution this year will be over £2.5 million to the charity. Trusts and Foundations should account for approximately £1.5m of this. COVID-19 has put education and related inequalities squarely on the agenda. Their services are never more needed and they need to further increase income to support more children and families. Due to an internal promotion they are now looking for a confident, enthusiastic and focused individual to join their friendly team. There will be opportunity to engage directly with staff running services and colleagues working directly with children and families, so you will learn a lot about their work and feel close to it. This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidates to develop and learn. The role will suit someone who is looking to make an impact and who can build on the charity's solid reputation to help grow their income from Trusts.
The post is expected to be home based initially, moving to their Stratford office when restrictions allow. Their office in Stratford is a 10 minute walk from the station and well served with both underground and mainline trains, including Stratford International, Jubilee and Central line tubes, Overground and DLR.
Closing date 9 am Monday 22nd March 2021
Interviews Monday 29th or Tuesday 30th March
