Project Manager – Youth in Focus ‘Sisters’ Project
Full-time: 37 hours per week – Fixed term until 2015

Could you lead a new and exciting mentoring project for young female offenders?

The Youth in Focus ‘Sisters’ Project is a new England-wide gender specific Mentoring Project for young female offenders aged between 15 and 24 who are in custody. A mentor will work with the young woman to build a professional relationship and support them so that they can develop positive relationships, access support for specialist services, and build the self-esteem, confidence and resilience they need to stop re-offending.

As Project Manager, you will be responsible for leading this new and exciting mentoring project. You’ll represent our charity and steer the development of a strategic partnership, developing services to support young people and their families who have become involved with the criminal justice system. It means managing a range of services, spotting business opportunities, embedding policies and procedures, and recruiting team members. You’ll also be responsible for managing operational and financial plans, and for promoting safeguarding best practice.

We’re looking to you to make the Sisters project a success. It’s therefore important you’re an organised leader who can inspire teams to perform at their best. We’ll also expect you to handle budgets, develop strategies, and manage relationships with a range of different people – so you must be articulate and analytical with sound financial management skills.
