Head of Programmes
Step Together Volunteering is looking for a talented and dynamic individual to lead our team as Head of Programmes. The role is multi-faceted: as well as providing line management and support to our team of dedicated front line staff, you’ll be bringing fresh and innovative ideas to the organisation to help develop our programmes. We are looking for an experienced manager with at least two years’ experience of leading and developing staff; experience of managing remote teams would be a distinct advantage. Ideally you will have worked for organisations that provide 1 to 1 or group support to people with complex needs and have good knowledge and understanding of coaching/mentoring and the benefits of volunteering.
You will be a key member of the charity’s senior management team, providing support to the CEO and contributing to the development of the organisation’s strategic and operational plans. As such, you will be adept at multi-tasking, managing different priorities and working to deadlines.
A key element of the role will be developing our programme delivery and evaluation methods to ensure that our work remains current to funders and commissioners whilst still delivering for our clients. You will help us to improve how we evidence the impact of our work effectively to support our fundraising and income generation activities, and will work closely with the fundraising team, contributing to successful applications. There is opportunity to bring your creative flair and introduce new ways of thinking to the organisation.
With excellent interpersonal and influencing skills, you will be comfortable networking and promoting the organisation to key stakeholders, including partners, referrers, commissioners and funders.
The role is based in Bristol with frequent travel to visit staff who work remotely across the UK.
