Partnerships Manager

c. £35,000

London (remote working at present due to Covid-19)

We’re looking for someone special to fill a brand-new role as Working Chance’s Partnerships Manager.

As part of our growing communications and engagement team, but collaborating with the entire organisation, you’ll be responsible for strategically mapping our key stakeholders, and then making magic happen by building on those relationships and showing the world who Working Chance is.

2021 is a big year for Working Chance, as we grow our team and embark on a new organisational strategy. We are a unique, award-winning charity supporting women with convictions - many of whom have been in prison - to develop their employability and self-belief and find a job they can thrive in.

This postholder will help change the employment landscape for women with convictions: showing employers the benefits of giving a woman the chance to reset her life and thrive. They will also be responsible for overseeing our partnerships with prisons and the probation service, as well as other organisations who refer women to us.

The right person will ardently believe that women with convictions deserve a chance to thrive and will empathise with the needs and experiences of the women we seek to support. We welcome applicants with lived experience of the criminal justice system.

To apply, please send a full CV and a supporting statement of up to two sides of A4 setting out why you want the job and how you meet the person specification to jobs@workingchance.org by midnight on 16 March. Please put the job title in the subject line of your email.
