Work for the Peter Jones Foundation

 
The Peter Jones Foundation advertises specific roles as and when they are available. However, we are always open to enquiries and applications from enthusiastic and motivated individuals. We believe that having a great team and working culture is the most important ingredient in the charity’s success, and we are always looking to add to that with great people.

As an innovative and growing charity, we often have new roles and opportunities in the pipeline, from the most junior to very senior. We would love to hear from people who are passionate about improving educational opportunities for children.

The Role

Position: Head of Programmes

The Head of Programmes will lead all aspects of PJF’s education programmes including our Tycoon Enterprise Competition, Peter Jones Enterprise Academy, National Entrepreneur of the Year competition and our alumni programme. We are looking to build a programmes team over the next 2 years but, initially, the Head of Programmes will have one report, a Programme Officer, to support on delivery. A key responsibility will be to ensure our programmes have measurable learning outcomes whilst increasing reach and to ensure a high
standard of delivery alongside the strong relationship management of our providers.

The Head of Programmes will also play an integral part in delivering our strategy for growth and bridging the gap between learning about enterprise and entrepreneurship and earning through it. As such, you will have a passion for business and a deep understanding of the start-up/scale-up landscape in particular. You will also have the know-how and skills set to build partnerships with organisations that can help young entrepreneurs and ensure we have programmes that are sustainable as well as impactful.

We understand that the two facets of the role outlined above will require a person with a breadth of experience both inside and outside of the education sector. With this in mind, we welcome applications from individuals wishing to job share (with responsibility for Programme Delivery or Strategy and Growth) as well as those with the experience and knowledge to lead on both aspects.
