They must be familiar with delivering outputs related contracts through various funding streams, such as European Social Fund and Talent Match, and be able to successfully complete compliance paperwork and funder returns as required.
The successful candidate will also be a creative thinker and a problem solver, as they will need to find solutions to operational challenges on a daily basis.

This is an exciting and challenging role for a highly motivated, dynamic and creative individual who is passionate about helping young people make positive changes in their lives. The candidate will also need to be able to successfully build relationships with the staff team, with charity and education professionals and be able to work well within both the college and charity sector.
