Programme Co-ordinator job opportunity

Circa £24,468 per annum (commensurate with skills and experience) + benefits 

35 hours per week (part time working 0.8+ considered)

Based in London WC2 with regular travel to the West Midlands

The RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) is an enlightenment organisation committed to finding innovative practical solutions to today’s social challenges.  One of the RSA’s key educational programmes is the establishment of a “Family of Academies”.  The RSA currently works with five schools in the West Midlands as a partner or sponsor, with plans to gradually increase the number of schools in the Family over the next few years.

The Family of Academies team currently comprises a Chief Executive and a Programme Manager.  We are now looking to expand the RSA Academies team by recruiting a Programme Co-ordinator to organise meetings and events and for staff and students at RSA Academies, to help maintain the RSA Academies website, and to provide administrative support to the programme as a whole.   Given the small size of the RSA Academies team the post-holder will work on many aspects of the team’s work.  The post will be based in London but the post-holder will need to make reasonably regular (approximately twice monthly) visits to the West Midlands where the Academies are located.

This opportunity would most suit someone with really strong administrative skills, who has a knowledge of and interest in education policy and improving outcomes for young people and some experience of working directly with schools or young people, either in a paid or voluntary capacity.  The post is likely to appeal to a self-starter who enjoys variety, and is comfortable with multi-tasking. We would most like to hear from capable and passionate individuals who support the ethos of the RSA and are committed to improving outcomes for young people.

The post is offered on a full time basis (35 hours per week Monday to Friday).  We would also welcome applicants from people wishing to work on a part time basis (at least 0.8) or term-time only to enable them to meet caring, studying or other external commitments.
