Senior Network Manager

The Girls’ Network is an award-winning charity whose mission is to inspire and empower girls from the least advantaged communities by connecting them with a mentor and a network of professional role models who are women. We work across eight regions of England, with a view to expanding and growing the programme. Our work is made possible with a dedicated network of supporters, mentors and schools.

We believe that no girls should have their futures limited by their gender, ethnicity, background, or parental income
We believe that all girls should be supported to realise their ambitions, to discover their self-worth, and to develop their capacity to shape their world and their future

We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination. We encourage and welcome applications from suitably skilled candidates of all genders and backgrounds. If we’re going to deliver mentoring to girls from the least advantaged communities we want to ensure that the team is inclusive and representative of the girls we work with. We are developing a cross-organisational Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy. We are a proud supporter of Show the Salary and The Halo Code.

The role

The Senior Network Manager role is dynamic and varied. No two days will be the same. You will be responsible for direct programme delivery to the girls we support (70%), team and line management of a growing team of network managers (10%) and hold overall responsibility for the strategic planning and management of the region (10%).

This role sits within the management team and senior programme team so you will also play a role in contributing to wider organisational and programme priorities (10%). We are looking for an experienced programme manager and someone who has line management experience who will feel comfortable stepping into a forming team to support the region and team to thrive.

The ideal candidate would be a highly motivated individual with great writing skills, some experience in advocacy and policy work and preferably some experience supporting or conducting policy research. Experience in capacity building work in low and middle income countries or programme coordination would also be beneficial. If this sounds like the sort of challenge you have been looking for, we would love to hear from you.
