Alumni Programme Officer, London and Manchester

We’re looking for passionate people to join our teams in London and Manchester. You’ll build relationships with schools across your region, supporting them to set up thriving and engaged alumni networks. You will host careers workshops and other inspiring events in these schools to give students access to role models, work experience placements, mentoring and much more from their new alumni network. You will kick start this activity by reaching out to former students (alumni) to invite them to join the network and support their old school.

Your time will be split between running workshops in schools with young people, working with teachers to help them run their own activities and working in the office to find as many former students of schools from across the region as possible.

You don’t need to be an expert in alumni networks just yet – we’ll help with that. You must be passionate about increasing social mobility, building brilliant relationships with a whole range of people and playing your part in cementing Future First’s status as the UK’s leader in this space.

We encourage applications from black and minority ethnic candidates to ensure that our team is diverse and representative.

Deadline – Tuesday 11 December
