StreetGames is a fast-moving and innovative national charity with a sector-leading reputation for delivering sport and physical activity on the doorstep of underserved communities. We are an award-winning organisation for our young volunteer programmes.
Our aim is to help young people and communities enjoy lives that are healthier, safer, and more successful through sport and physical activity.
To do that, we work with community organisations to engage young people from lower socio-economic groups through sport and physical activity at the right time, in the right place, at the right price, in the right style, and with the right people.
About the role
The role of the Volunteer and Youth Voice Manager is central to our success in developing young people directly and through the community organisations we support. Working in a national role, reporting to the Director of Development, this role will lead the work to deliver projects that achieve our ambition.
The Volunteer and Youth Voice Manager will support both the national and regional work of the StreetGames; supporting national teams to implement excellent youth voice and design programmes which deliver on our youth voice and youth volunteering priorities within our Strategy.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated individual with a passion for developing young people. Candidates should have experience of successfully managing project work and working with young people to achieve a shared goal.
You will have excellent networking and relationship building skills with experience of working collaboratively with funders and partners.
With strong communication skills you will have experience of managing small project teams and overseeing multiple projects simultaneously.
As the successful candidate, you will be a self-starter maximising your excellent communication and people management skills. Outcomes and solution focussed, you will possess a good knowledge of wider social outcomes and ways to address them for people living in the communities we interact and work with through sport and physical activity.
This role is offered full time at 35 hours per week. Other options such as job-share or part-time arrangements will be considered.
No candidate will meet every single desired requirement. If your experience looks a little different from what we have identified and you think you can bring value to the role, we would love to learn more about you!
