Are you looking for an engaging, fulfilling, and varied role? Young Enterprise is looking for a new Area Manager in Berkshire.
Young Enterprise is a national charity that works directly with young people, teachers, volunteers, and influencers to help young people succeed in the changing world of work. We are all about realising potential and building people's futures - and committed to do the same for the people who join our dedicated team. We are passionate about equality, creating an environment in which each individual can thrive, contribute, and grow as a professional.
As Area Manager you will be a key contributor to the regional strategy working very much in a one team environment whilst giving you the space to grow and develop your skills. Your role as Area Manager will see you work directly with young people and teachers in schools that take part in Young Enterprise programmes such as company programme, day programmes and digital programmes.
The Area Manager role involves the management of volunteers who support the YE programmes in your area. Delivering YE programmes in classroom and hall environments to students. Managing multiple programmes at any one time. Engaging with new schools as well as supporting existing school relationships. There will be occasional need for event planning and running, reporting, support with volunteer recruitment and networking activities.
We are looking for:
A motivated self-starter
Confident and happy in presenting and delivering to large audiences
Good organisational, prioritising, and problem-solving skills, with the resilience to work effectively under pressure.
An understanding or experience of managing relationships with volunteers
A great promoter and inspirer in helping young people achieve their potential
Computer literacy with understanding of word, excel, PowerPoint and Microsoft Teams
You'll be working alongside an experienced and passionate small regional team, with a 'can-do' ethos of supporting each other and sharing knowledge across programmes and geographies.
This is a home-based role, however, will require significant travel throughout Berkshire.
To apply, please send your CV - with a covering letter (no more than 2 sides of A4) explaining why you think you would be right for this opportunity via CharityJob by no later than midday on 12th July 2022. Please note applications without a cover letter will not be considered.
Interviews will take place with Joey Russ (Regional Manager) and Lee Palmer (Director of Education Relationships) via MS Teams week commencing 18th July 2022.
Although we endeavour to respond to all applications, if you have not heard from us by two weeks from the closing date you should consider your application unsuccessful.
