Programmes Manager x2

Are you an experienced programme and grants manager who is passionate about supporting communities and promoting practical action on the environment?

Groundwork is a charity working locally and nationally to transform lives in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities.

We’re passionate about creating a future where every neighbourhood is vibrant and green, every community is strong and able to shape its own destiny and no-one is held back by their background or circumstances. We help people gain confidence and skills, get into training and work, protect and improve green spaces, lead more active lives and overcome significant challenges such as poverty, isolation, low skills and poor health.

We are recruiting for two pivotal Programme Manager posts within our national team in Birmingham. One of the roles will focus primarily on managing our relationships with corporate partnerships, whilst the other will focus on relationships with commissioners and public bodies. Each will lead a team of programme and grant management professionals, overseeing the management of some of Groundwork’s largest and most significant programmes and relationships, covering a wide range of thematic areas linked to communities, environmental action, and improved prosperity.

You will have experience in developing and managing a variety of partnerships, contracts and programmes involving a range of stakeholders, alongside a track record of managing workload in a busy team.
