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 Manager. You will primarily manage the flagship EPIC Youth projects; EPIC Young Business and EPIC StartUP, and support the MJN Programme team on the creation of new projects, fundraising and financial management. This role is a key part of the growth and expansion of EPIC Youth, and will expand into a team manager role of programmes as EPIC Youth builds on its success. You’ll lead on the financial management of EPIC Youth and facilitate the fundraising to build the programmes and expand our offering as well tracking project performance. You’ll also support the creation of support and mentorship programmes with young people and long term goals and ensure that all young people exit the programme on time, achieving targets and within budget. You’ll be based from our Birmingham office but will be able to attend external offices to support young people.
You should have proven experience in people management and team leadership, managing budgets and have excellent stakeholder and internal communication skills. Ideally, you will have proven experience in project and programme management in a young people’s setting and minoritized communities. You’ll be able to work independently and 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.
