LVA are hiring a Project Manager to recruit, train and manage a team of volunteers to work within local secondary schools to deliver a therapeutic mentoring program to years 7-13.

This is a new role that needs building from the ground up and, therefore, has potential for growth as the project expands and establishes.

Essential attributes required to apply for this role include a commitment to Christian values, project administration, experience of working with volunteers, networking skills, safeguarding knowledge, excellent communication skills and the ability to work with a wide range of contacts.

Additionally, you’ll need a strong pastoral awareness and have an understanding of young people and their concerns and situations.

The role will initially be a temporary contract for one academic year (September – July) with potential for a full-time permanent position subject to funding.

The weekly hours should be worked during the school day with a degree of flexibility and a mix of remote and face-to-face working, where possible. It will be based in Christ Church Feltham and Hampton High School and will ideally commence from 1 November 2021.

Interviews will be held on Friday 24 September 2021.
