The Education & Employment Programme is a programme of Osmani Trust working to improve educational outcomes; skills and competencies; and employment prospects of communities living in and around East London. In order to strengthen our ability to open up opportunities for these communities we are looking to recruit an experienced and highly motivated Employer Engagement Officer.

The engagement of employers and building new employer relationships is a key function of this role.
If you feel you have what it takes to work in a challenging environment and the requisite experience to match, we look forward to hearing from you.
