Fixed Term Contract (12 months) with possibility of extension subject to funding
Covid-19 has had a profound impact on local economies with unprecedented numbers losing their livelihoods or preventing those who are wanting to access the labour market for the first time or returning.
As a community anchor organisation, our client has tested how it can use its leverage with people and employers and get people into a pathway into work or into work directly through its Place2 Work scheme.
They now have an opportunity for a Development Manager to take forward their emerging approach and upscale it in an area of 50,000 residents working with other anchor organisations, employers and local schools.
The role will support their future strategic thinking on Inclusive Economies and link in to the work of the Birmingham Anchor Network.
They are looking for someone with experience of working on employability programmes with clients who have lost their employment or are unable to access the employment market after full time education, or a return to work from caring or other responsibilities. You will be able to engage employers and identify pathways to mutually meet needs of the employer and potential employee.
You will also have experience of working on either economic development, inclusive growth or community regeneration.
This role is offered initially a 12 month fixed term contract basis with potential to extend subject to funding success.
Location: Home, Office and Site. Note initially the role will be homeworking and operations at office and site work will be in accordance to wider policies around a return to office working.
This is a great opportunity to make a difference and deliver life changing results for people.
