Deadline: Sunday 22nd July
Start Date: ASAP.

We want Year Here to be the most effective and well-regarded social impact learning experience in the world. You’ll be the driving force in making that happen.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Year Here is a platform for young professionals who want to build smart responses to social problems. Over one year our Fellows learn from, and design with, people at the frontline of inequality – in care homes, homeless hostels and youth services across London – and go on to found some of the most promising social impact startups in the country. Since launching at 10 Downing Street in 2013, we’ve worked with 128 aspiring social entrepreneurs and launched award-winning social ventures like Cracked It, Birdsong and Chatterbox. We’re a deeply committed team of 8 surrounded by a faculty of 75 social innovation experts – the great and the good of Britain’s social impact world. We care about being first-rate professionals, learning with restless vigour and having fun along the way.

ABOUT THE ROLE

As Programme Director, you will be ultimately responsible for the impact of our 1-year Fellowship, our flagship programme. We’ve achieved great things since we got started in 2013 but our ambitions are even bigger. We want Year Here to be the most effective and well-regarded social impact learning experience in the world. You’ll be the driving force in making that happen. You’ll craft the curriculum, design the programme, build out the faculty and partnerships and ensure the operational excellence that’s required to make the programme truly transformative for our Fellows. You will be very hands on, working with Fellows every week of the year – whether that’s coaching them through the frontline phase, working with them on a consulting project, or advising them on a venture idea. Supporting you in delivering the programme is a Programme Manager and two Programme Producers – plus you’ll draw heavily from the expertise of the CEO and Head of Design. This is a full time role.
