As our Team Leader in North Islington you will have responsibility for running your IntoUniversity centre including planning and delivering the programme, liaising with external stakeholders (including our university partners) and meeting IntoUniversity's targets for delivery. However a substantial element of this role is delivering on the ground our education programme to children and young people aged 7-18. You will need to have a genuine passion and enthusiasm for working with young people including leading a class of 30 from the front, working with small teams of children and providing one-to-one support. This is not a desk job! The role will be fast-paced and challenging. Each day you will be contributing directly to the success of the charity and the transformation of the lives of some of the UK's most disadvantaged young people. Flexibility, attention to detail and the ability to multi-task are all necessary for your day-to-day routine. You will be proactive and able to use your initiative at all times. You will have excellent organisational skills and be highly efficient. You will have a minimum 2.1 honours degree (or a PGCE in addition to a 2:2 degree) and at least two years' full-time (or equivalent) paid experience working with children and young people in a relevant role, for example working as a teacher or youth worker. You will also have substantial experience of managing projects and people, have excellent written and oral communication skills and will be committed to managing your centre for a minimum of 2 years. Finally, our aim as a charity is to become the pre-eminent provider of widening participation services in the UK and we are looking for people who will be committed to helping us to achieve that goal. You will need to have a genuine passion for the mission and values of IntoUniversity. If you believe that all young people deserve the chance to achieve their potential regardless of their background and want to play a part in helping them succeed then we would be delighted to hear from you.
