Job Opportunity: Youth Futures Foundation
When we asked young people facing discrimination about their experiences of employment support, they told us they want a more joined-up and consistent approach, so that they get the right help from the right services (from employment or education to health or housing, statutory or voluntary) at the right time.
We set up the Connected Futures Fund to encourage these kinds of approaches at a local level. We want to fund work that builds connections, aligns incentives and fills gaps in support. We also want to remove barriers in how support is provided, for example through anti-racist practice.
We are looking for a Relationships Manager to accompany minority-led partnerships during Phase 1, acting as the key point of contact for Youth Futures in order to:
- support each partnership to make the most of their work in Phase 1
- enable Youth Futures to make informed decisions about Phase 2 investments
- bring local insight and learning into Youth Futures, and to channel information and support from Youth Futures to local partnerships
You will lead our relationship with a small number of local partnerships led by people from minoritised ethnic communities – most likely with Bangladeshi, Pakistani, or Gypsy, Roma or Traveller heritage. We particularly welcome applications from members of these communities as it is advantageous for this role that you have the relevant lived experience and understanding.
