We are now looking for an exceptional Head of Youth Action to continue the legacy of this work in youth clubs across the capital. You’ll need a depth and breadth of skills that cover traditional management and leadership capabilities, through to strong communication and facilitation skills. You’ll be as comfortable inspiring young people as you will supporting corporate volunteers and feel as at home working with budgets and bids as you will leading and developing a team.

Most of all you’ll believe in the power of good youth work and you’ll be absolutely committed to young people and ensuring that they can make the most of this fantastic city and the opportunities it present for them.

In return, you get to join a charity that has both a rich history and an inspiring vision for the future, determining it and its future as a member of the leadership team. You will get to shape and grow our Youth Action work at a time where we have won new investment and support from the City of London and forge new relationships with the leaders of some of the largest institutions within it. And best of all you will see the capital in an entirely new way working with our brilliant and diverse network of member youth clubs situated in the hearts of every community. If a challenging, diverse and inspiring role is your cup of tea then we would love to hear from you.


£37,398 per annum


40 hours (Monday- Friday 9am- 6pm with occasional evenings and weekends) contract ongoing
