Help us to support more bright, ambitious young people to obtain careers with leading employers!

Here at Leadership Through Sport and Business we are going through an exciting period of growth and have ambitious plans to diversify the career paths we offer to reach more disadvantaged young people.

To support the next phase of our growth, we are recruiting to two roles – Employment Manager for North-West England, and Careers Development Manager for London.

About the Employment Manager role

We’re looking for someone to lead our innovative employment initiative developing and maintaining the charity’s relationships with employers in the North West. The successful candidate will be responsible for engaging and building relationships with potential employers, managing and negotiating a smooth recruitment process for our young people into rewarding roles. The role requires knowledge of the government levy and apprenticeship pathways. The Employment Manager will work closely with the Careers Development Managers to prepare young people for online applications, video and telephone interviews and face-to-face interviews. An existing knowledge of employers and network in the North West is vital.

The successful candidate will have a proven commitment to improving the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds with a good understanding of social mobility, diversity and inclusion issues.
