Do you want to play a lead role at the heart of an organisation which makes a real difference to people’s lives?

If you’d love to lead an innovative and varied suite of programmes which improve outcomes for young people, then this could be the job for you!

This is a newly created role, due to organisational growth.  We’re looking for someone to lead our new Skills and Development ‘pillar’, by bringing together some of our existing young people’s projects and services, and driving further opportunities.

This includes our:

  • Keys programmes – Key to Potential, Key to College and Key to Work – which support young people towards positive destinations
  • Our Creative Natives programme, a space where we support young people to grow their creative confidence, skills and connections in a design studio.

About you

You will have a knack for translating strategic aims into operational reality, and be keen to use your excellent management skills to create opportunities for young people to reach their potential.  You’ll relish the opportunity to be in ‘from the start’ of this new pillar, building on our existing areas of expertise, and be able to identify and innovate potential areas for development.

Your skills in bringing people along with you will be invaluable, enabling you to support your team and engage with partners to create positive, innovative programmes and projects which contribute to achieving our strategic aims.

How we’ll support you

You’ll be supported by an experienced Director of Services, and join a collaborative, knowledgeable senior management team, who will support you to develop and grow in your role. You’ll also have access to wider Cyrenians’ support, including our learning programme, and staff wellbeing services.

Closing date:          12 noon Monday 27 March 2023
Interview date(s): Monday 3 April
