We are recruiting a Programme Manager to lead our grassroots consortium BBG supporting young people facing multiple/complex disadvantages in the borough. Our partners and we are specialists in transforming the life trajectories of young people who have become marginalised by local poverty, unemployment and crime – particularly those from BAME communities who are disproportionately affected by these issues.

The consortium will work to address violence in the Bethnal Green area, Tower Hamlets, London by working with key stakeholders, young people and local communities to provide a range of interventions, capacity building and support.

This opportunity is ideal for someone who will relish the challenge of working with a dynamic consortium with an ambitious vision. You will have programme management experience, preferably within a community setting and a track record of meeting your goals and targets. You will have creative ideas on how to maximise impact, reduce violence and increase community resilience. You are a people’s person, find it easy to communicate verbally and in writing and enjoy building networks and co-ordinating stakeholders.

This is a unique opportunity to lead a creative and innovative approach to violence reduction and to leave a lasting legacy that positively impacts young people and local communities.
