This is a pivotal role which will be at the centre of transforming the working of London Youth. We are looking for someone who can be a digital agitator who can drive opportunities in the organisation. Someone who understands information systems and their potential to revolutionise organisations, who has led a digital development function and can take a future focused approach to integrating our digital, information and communication systems effectively throughout the organisation. This will include consideration of strategies to enable us to extend our reach to wider audiences, deliver added value (online) to our membership and better market our services.
This role will lead on digital transformation and data management projects to support the organisation to deliver its ambitious strategy. With agreed investment in this area, this is an interesting and varied role working on diverse activities and a range of platforms. We are looking for the post-holder to take a holistic and strategic approach and drive a significant programme of work.
Alongside these developments, the role will also ensure effective management of our information and communication systems, business continuity, security and data governance.
The successful post-holder will have excellent project management skills and communication skills, a sound understanding of systems and data management principles, and comfortable in dealing with technical issues – although is not expected to be an expert as it will manage outside agencies and support. They will understand how systems and data contribute to our strategy implementation and provide insight in to opportunities that will support us to maximise our efficiency and impact. A good understanding of marketing (and digital marketing) principles and is also desirable.
This is an exciting and varied role for a dynamic individual interested in transformation. Can you turn our ideas in to a reality? Can you lead our journey to step up our use of digital opportunities, consolidate our information sources and develop game changing reporting insights?
We are London Youth, a charity on a mission to improve the lives of young people in London, challenging them to become the best they can. Young people need opportunities outside school to have fun with their friends, to learn new skills, to make a positive change in their communities and to shape the city they live in.
Last year, we worked with over 27,000 young people through our sports development, employability, youth action and involvement, arts and outdoor education programmes. Our work gives young people access to opportunities they might not otherwise have had.
Throughout our history, community youth organisations have provided a constant lifeline and a vital safe space outside the family and formal education, where young people can develop confidence, resilience and skills.
Our vision is that all young Londoners grow up healthy, able to express themselves, navigate a fulfilling career and make a positive contribution in their communities.
Our mission is to support and challenge young people to become the best they can be; developing their confidence, resilience and relationship skills.
We do this with, and through, our network of community youth organisations and at our two residential centres. We look to work with all young people, focusing particularly on those who wouldn’t otherwise have access to the kind of opportunities we offer.
Because good youth work works.
