Programmes Manager

  • £39,000
  • Chatham, Kent
  • Medway Voluntary Action

An exciting opportunity exists for a Programmes Manager to bid for, plan, execute, supervise and report on appropriate contracts/ programmes, including the Lottery funded Transformation Academy/Alliance; to meet MVA’s strategic objectives and to ensure programme delivery is within budget and on time; to seek funding for future programmes and services and to work directly with the CEO to maintain the sustainability and growth of MVA. This post will be directly supported by two full time Project Officers.

MVA is an organisation that has historically provided voluntary sector infrastructure to the myriad of local charities in Medway alongside a training offer, and has provided a seedbed for a number of small charities over the years before launching those charities to independence. We also host a volunteer network.

MVA has played a pivotal role during the Covid-19 Pandemic in bringing together Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) organisations to work together during this time; we have also facilitated relationship building between the VCS and the Statutory sector. We are well placed now to continue to focus on MVA’s sustainability and growth, whilst also continuing to support and work with the VCS to strengthen its capacity and resilience going forward.

We are looking for an enthusiastic self-starter with good people skills and project management experience who has led and motivated teams and developed and managed partnerships to achieve common aims. You will preferably have experience of working in the VCS.
