You will be responsible for overseeing all elements of the project that includes:

  • Recruiting a wide range of young people
  • Arranging training for the young people, including sourcing appropriate trainers
  • Organising the timely delivery of  all the project outputs, e .g. documentary films, events, archiving, website/blog, drama performance, oral histories, digital fashion range and an exhibition

  • Working collaboratively with trainers, youth workers, community workers and others to deliver the project outputs
  • Monitoring and evaluation, including reporting to the HLF and other funders
  • Servicing the project steering group

When you join us, you will be part of an amazing team of people who share our drive to be a force for good in the lives of local people and who believe in our values of being Reliable, Responsive and Respectful.
