Come on board: the Orwell Foundation is hiring

Friday 26 May 2017

The Orwell Foundation is recruiting for the role of Programmes Manager.

We are looking for a Programmes Manager to manage the day-to-day running of the Foundation’s activities and the Orwell Youth Prize. The role is predominantly project management and administration. Alongside this, the Programmes Manager is responsible for working with the Director and board of the Orwell Foundation to develop strategy and to build partnerships.  The manager will also work on fundraising and grant applications, and will be the central link between the different strands of the Orwell Foundation’s work.

The responsibilities of the Programmes Manager are broad – from charity administration and events organisation to meeting high profile individuals and organisations. There is much scope for independence and leading your own projects: no two days are the same. The Orwell Foundation has developed enormously in the past three years. This is an opportunity to join a vibrant and ambitious organisation at an exciting time, managing a small team.

The Programmes Manager reports to and works closely with the Director of the Orwell Foundation, the Chair of the Orwell Prize and the Administrator. The Director, Programmes Manager and Administrator work closely with two active Boards of Trustees.

A full list of duties and responsibilities is included in the job description.

There is a possibility of an additional part-time post. Please indicate in your covering letter if you would be interested in this position.
