Job Title: Programme Assistant

Salary: £21,465

Contract: Permanent, Full or part time

Annual Leave: 50 days to be taken during school holidays

Location: London, with possibility of some travel outside.

Power2 is a fast growing and energetic youth charity that has supported 25,000 young people since 2001.  We are based in the North West of England and London and deliver early-intervention asset-based programmes to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who have mental wellbeing challenges and are disengaged from school and more widely. We are well-known for our accredited Teens and Toddlers programme.

We believe there is no greater cost to society than unfulfilled potential. We support young people to get the most out of their education by helping them to improve their mental health and wellbeing and develop their skills. We inspire young people who are at significant risk of school exclusion to re-engage and fulfil their potential at school, at work and in life.

Our work is growing, and we are looking for new Programme Assistants to support our programmes so that all children and young people, regardless of their needs, feel they belong and can prosper.

Our new Programme Assistants will work to support the management, set-up and smooth running of Power2 activities in schools and other educational settings. Work will include supporting the delivery of Power2’s core programmes, including Teens and Toddlers and Power2 Progress. The successful candidates could be based in one school or travel between multiple schools.

The relationships you cultivate with the young people you work with are at the heart of our success – so recruiting the right people is paramount. Our Assistants work with significant autonomy and authority and must embrace responsibility and be accountable for their work. They work collaboratively alongside young people, giving each the time, confidence and skills to engage with their education and their future life plans.

Please apply online with either an application form or with your CV and personal statement. In your personal statement please describe how your skills and experience match the role description you are applying for. Applications without a personal statement will not be considered. 

Applications should be sent to [email protected] by the deadline of 23:59 on Wednesday 30 November 2022.
