Programme Manager – Lifelong Links Portsmouth – Daybreak
3 minute read
We are looking for a new Programme Manager to join our team to oversee our Lifelong Links programme in Portsmouth.
Salary range: £31,300 – 41,300 per annum, depending on experience
Location: Home-based with regular travel around Portsmouth and occasionally to Eastleigh, Hampshire (Head Office) for meetings and other areas, based on operational need
Contract: Full time Fixed Term Contract until March 2025 with a possibility of extending
Closing date: 29 February 2024
Interviews: W/C 11 March 2024
We are committed to safeguarding and all posts are subject to an Enhanced DBS Check, two satisfactory references and proof of right to work in the UK.
We are keen to meet with passionate operational managers, skilled at leading a remote team, with versatile communication skills, and a progressive, forward-thinking perspective on supporting those with experience of care – together with a dedication to high-quality work for young people, every time.
Lifelong Links work involves identifying and engaging relatives and other supportive adults connected to a care-experience young person who are willing to make a life-long commitment to them. This programme aims to build a positive and lasting support network for children and young people who have lost connections with family members and supportive people. It also aims to improve outcomes for some of our most vulnerable young people to ensure that they get the best possible start in their lives especially when transitioning into adulthood. Lifelong Links will support young people who are currently in care or are care leavers, and for whom there are no plans for them to live within their family or be adopted. We propose to support up to 60 young people throughout the programme. More information about the programme is available in the role pack, below.
Whilst the role is home-based, this role is to support young people living in Portsmouth, and so a successful candidate would need to actively work in person with commissioners, external partners and communities in this area regularly, depending on service need. Willingness to travel to other areas, depending on service need and growth is needed.
We are a leading charity in the UK offering Family Group Conferences and Lifelong Link services at an exciting point in our history where we are exploring and actively building new and innovative ways to work alongside families and the community. If you are keen to get creative and explore new opportunities alongside managing and leading an excellent core service, we would love to hear from you.
