As we move into large-scale programme delivery and evaluation, we are expanding the Programmes and Grant Directorate with two new Heads of Programmes roles. Each postholder will lead the development and implementation of a major area of programming, overseeing high quality delivery and ensuring that the work we fund generates robust evidence and insight.

As Head of Programmes, you will manage the work of a cross-functional team delivering a programme of grants, research, evaluation, communications, youth involvement and associated activity. You will provide programme leadership, ensuring that this range of activity is aligned to programme objectives and Youth Futures’ overall strategic aims. You will coordinate programme-related work across the organisation, fostering collaboration in pursuit of a shared purpose.

You will make connections to relevant stakeholders and wider debates, positioning Youth Futures as an organisation at the forefront of thinking and practice in your programme area(s). You will work closely with externally-facing colleagues to feed learning and insight from funded programmes into our policy work, employer engagement and public communications. At the heart of the role is management and oversight of a thematic grants programme, ensuring that funded delivery is of high quality and enables Youth Futures to deepen and build the evidence base of what works in youth employment.

This role can be based at any of our hubs located in London, Birmingham or Leeds.  We currently operate a hybrid model of two-days per week in the office and three-days from home. For more information, please download the job recruitment pack.

We are expanding our Programmes & Grants team and have a number of opportunities available.

The young people we aim to serve – and the challenges they face - are all unique. We are looking to build a team that reflects this diversity. Our commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, class, religion, identity, and experience forms the cornerstone of our work. We are an equal opportunities, Living Wage and Disability Confident employer and encourage applications from a diverse range of backgrounds representative of our communities.  We offer a welcoming and inclusive workplace, where employees are encouraged to have a voice.
