EPIC is passionate about helping young people to be fearless about their futures. We exist to support them in their growth as entrepreneurs who will contribute to a better, more inclusive society where individuals are valued, and communities grow and thrive cohesively.
As EPIC is a programme within the Martin James Network, we can utilise the experience, skills and knowledge of all the entrepreneurs who have grown the array of companies that make up the Martin James Network. For those young people who join EPIC, they have the opportunity to work with leaders who have created transformational VR and AR companies, learning and development, and Human Resource companies, companies serving children, young people and families, mental health companies, tax based companies, and community base food companies.
We now have an exciting opportunity to join EPIC and the Martin James Network as a Programme Co-ordinator. You will support on running the EPIC Young Business Programme, and the programme’s business partnerships, both within the Martin James Network and wider, facilitating and growing these networks and connections to grow the EPIC Programme. You’ll facilitate and grow the EPIC business partnerships and network by building on existing relationships and building new relationships by liaising with business mentors to ensure that young people’s needs are met. You’ll also ensure that the grants and finance systems are up to date and accurate. You’ll be based from our Birmingham office but will be able to attend external offices to support young people.
You should have previous experience of managing charity or community programmes and ideally have experience of building partnerships and/or business relationships especially in relation to young people and minoritized communities. You’ll have strong verbal and written communication skills, be able to work independently and be able to work at pace working across several EPIC projects at once. You should be qualified to A-Level standard and ideally have a degree in Sociology, Psychology, Business Administration or other relevant degree.
