Current Vacancies

Programme Director

We are looking for an exceptional Programme Director to join us and be responsible for setting up and running Engage Britain’s second major project, focusing on providing opportunities to people living in poverty. The role also oversees our work with our network of grassroots leaders who are running a host of inspiring community initiatives across the country. You will support this network as it co-creates initiatives that give a voice to their communities.

We’re looking for someone with a strong track record of developing initiatives involving the public and practitioners within the charitable sector, local or national government, think tanks or consultancy. You will already have demonstrated your ability to be part of a leadership team and will ideally have experience of working within another maturing organisation. Crucially, you will be passionate about Engage Britain’s goal of demonstrating a new approach, putting people at the heart of policy making. 

Engage Britain will bring people together to share their views, knowledge and experiences, and find answers to these challenges. But we won’t stop there. We’ll then work with people – communities, citizens, practitioners, politicians – to make these ideas happen. Ultimately, our ambition is to make Britain work better for us all.

We are a flexible employer and welcome applications from candidates who might want to work flexibly. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates who are based across the UK, as you will be able to work remotely.
