This position can be flexible in relation to the person and/or the hours and work pattern. Likewise, we would also welcome a candidate who would prefer to take on the employed position.

Resilience Learning Partnership is still a new and developing organisation. We started our journey with one staff member and a small Board of Directors just over 5 years ago. And, we now have 12 staff members and an ever-growing Board which we continue to add to.

Our success has been primarily down to- growing organically, being lived experience led and having a strong entrepreneurial approach to much of what we do.

Therefore, it is important to us that anyone considering putting forward an expression of interest in this role has a social entrepreneurial vision around their work and the approach that they take.

We are a social enterprise and entrepreneurialism/social entrepreneurialism is an essential element of what we do- we a looking for candidates that can demonstrate an understanding of the importance of this and are excited to hear from you about how you would bring this quality to the role.

We are looking for someone to fulfil programme manager responsibilities across at least 3 days per week but if you feel you could fulfil both the finance and programme manager parts then we would accept interest in the post as a full-time contract.

Work/life balance is really important to us. We are open to exploring how this role could work for you and so will accept applications for this post on a full-time, part-time, job share and/or other flexible working arrangements – please state on your application form and detail in a covering letter.
