Help us to support more bright, ambitious young people to obtain careers with leading employers!
LTSB is a social mobility charity that work with bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, ensuring they find meaningful, skilled careers. We are going through an exciting period of growth and will be working with many more young people this year than ever before.
To support the next phase of our growth, we are recruiting four new Careers Development Managers.
About the Careers Development Manager role
Our Careers Development Managers (CDMs) are the main point of contact for the young people we support, through the training and development programmes that we deliver, and during the first phase of their careers (usually in an apprenticeship). The main focus of the role is the development of young people into meaningful careers, and this includes provision of pastoral care, understanding each individual and providing support as needed.
CDMs delivery against one or more programmes – this year we have two major programmes working to help young people aged 16-24 to gain careers with NatWest Group. One of those programmes is new, and will see 150 young people become apprentices in Contact Centres in Belfast, Bolton, Edinburgh, Greenock, Liverpool, and Southend-on-Sea. The other is year two of the exciting Digital & Customer Service programme, which is expanding this year to see 90 young people gain a range of roles in Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, London, and Manchester.
We are looking for dynamic, inspirational people to deliver employability and personal development workshops to groups of young people, and to support them through the vital first phase of their career. CDMs will be based at home, and for obvious reasons while the pandemic continues we are delivering remotely, though in the future we hope to be able to deliver sessions in person again. We are particularly keen to hear from applicants in or close to Bristol, Edinburgh, Greater Manchester, and London.
