Project Manager

Do you want to help make a real difference to the lives of young people across the UK?

We believe that every young person should be able to fulfil their potential, regardless of their background. We’re looking to recruit a talented Project Manager to deliver high-quality mentoring projects which have a positive impact on the lives of thousands of young people.

It’s an exciting time to join Brightside. We are a fast-moving charity and we pride ourselves on our friendly, professional and supportive culture. Our team is small but growing, and 100% of staff recommend working for Brightside in our most recent staff surveys. We embrace new ideas and celebrate the talent and contribution of all team members.

About our projects

Your success in helping us to promote the best possible outcomes for beneficiaries will be measured in terms of your performance in planning and delivering projects, training volunteers and working closely with partners to fully engage young people with high-quality mentoring.

We help young people navigate key transition points, so our projects have wide-ranging objectives including widening participation to higher education, raising aspirations, pre-arrival and retention support for new undergraduates, and the development of students’ employability skills. We believe all young people should have access to the same opportunities, no matter where they live, so our work spans the whole of England. This will require frequent travel, and occasional overnight stays.

We have recently secured a series of new and exciting partnerships through the National Collaborative Outreach Programme. Your successful delivery of some of these projects across the country will significantly contribute to our success in this new area.
