TPP Recruitment are excited to be working with a vital, rapidly developing charity who exist to improve the life chances of young people facing socio-economic disadvantage.
Through partnering with high-quality volunteer tutors, they enable young people who have less access to the tools that will support them to reach their potential, to achieve a meaningful level of academic attainment at school, with a view to progress in education, employment or training.
Critical to the charity's mission, they are now looking to recruit a Programme Coordinator to oversee a case load of partner schools in Sussex. Often travelling throughout Sussex, you will work closely with the schools and pupils and manage the pool of volunteer tutors by regularly attending weekly tutoring sessions, as well as overseeing the quality of face to face and online tutoring, always working to deliver a great impact.
As the Sussex Programme Coordinator, you will also support the recruitment of volunteer tutors, manage the tutor sign up process, deliver training for tutors, develop relationships with schools including their Senior Leadership Team and subject teachers, collect data for monitoring and evaluation purposes, and work with other internal teams on business development opportunities.
Being the sole representative for a partner school, you will need to use your ability to work with initiative, often organising your own time to meet deadlines. You'll also need to have a strong aptitude for developing relationships with a range of stakeholders ensuring you uphold high standards of communication and adapt your style for different audiences. The nature of this role will also require you to demonstrate adaptability, resilience and the ability to cope with some uncertainty.
This position would suit you if you're looking to develop your experience in the education or charity sectors. Existing experience of working with young people and/or project management in a charity or education setting would be an asset.
As a charity that values and celebrates people's diversity and champions opportunities for all young people, they are keen to receive applications from people who have experienced disadvantage and from those who are of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities who are currently underrepresented in the organisation.
If you are dedicated to ensuring young people from all backgrounds reach a meaningful level of academic attainment and are passionate about bringing about this change, please show your interest by submitting your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting reference number J74942DT.
