We're currently recruiting for a Programme Manager - Farm in a Box
Programme Manager - Farm in a Box
Employed: 4-5 days per week (28 - 35 hours)
Remuneration: £32-35,000 depending on experience
Location: Flexible, helpful if within reach of Chelmsford
Contract: Permanent subject to successful 6-month probationary review. We would also be open to discussing a self-employed contract if this is your preference
We seek a skilled and versatile Programme Manager to very quickly become immersed in, and take ownership of our new, but already highly regarded Farm in a Box (FIAB) programme, initially focusing on the successful delivery of Farm in a Box National in autumn 2021.
Farm in a Box supports teachers to deliver hands-on, farm-centred, in-school experiences for primary children in disadvantaged areas. Initially developed as a response to Covid-19, Farm in a Box is proving to be a highly effective and versatile format which has the potential to help us achieve our ambitious 5 year plan.
Our first pilot at scale - Discover Warburtons Wheat Farm in a Box National – has just taken place, reaching 10,000 children and we have just secured the funding for a bigger autumn programme centred on farming and climate change for 26,000 children (1000 Boxes).
We expect that FIAB – its three current variants and new versions yet to be devised - will grow to play an important role in our portfolio. The Programme Manager will therefore need to be skilled at programme management AND development.
Closing date: Midnight 28th July*
Interviews: To be confirmed. Likely to take place week commencing 9th August
*We reserve the right to close this advertisement early if we receive a high volume of applications.
