Arts Emergency is a charity and national support network for young people who don’t have influential contacts of their own. Arts Emergency engages a network of over 7,000 volunteers and supporters, professionals in the cultural and creative industries; from humanities professors to dancers, from journalists and best-selling authors to indie musicians and theatre makers. This network offers 16-24 year olds from less-privileged backgrounds the work experience, mentoring, support, knowledge and real world connections they need to make the right choices for them in higher education, and break through into a related career. Our Service Team is the beating heart of the charity working directly with young people and volunteers to help create opportunity, build confidence and develop creative networks.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and adaptable person to work as part of a small team on our flagship London mentoring project. This role focuses on supporting young people from marginalised backgrounds with hand-picked mentors and further professional and academic opportunities. As London Programme Officer you will be the main contact for young people, schools and mentors in London, and responsible for recruiting, matching and supporting mentor pairs throughout their year.
It’s a very rewarding and busy post, in which you’ll meet lots of interesting people, and play a huge role in transforming young people’s life chances.
Contract: ongoing, 5 days a week
