Contract: Fixed Term (Until Autumn 2023), Full Time
Coram, the UK’s oldest children’s charity, is launching a major new heritage programme, Voices Through Time: the story of care, and needs an enthusiastic, skilled team to drive it forward. Coram’s archive is extensive, fascinating and sadly, because of its age, deteriorating. Recognising this, and the archive’s importance to the nation, the National Lottery Heritage Fund has made a four-year grant to enable us to
digitise and transcribe a major portion of the archive;
promote our heritage content online;
match creative partners with care-experienced and looked-after young people in a series of arts projects;
develop a suite of resources based on these activities, to reach out to others; and
challenge the misconceptions of care by showcasing young people’s talents and ambitions.
We are now looking to build a team to deliver this project and are looking for individuals who are passionate about young people’s progression as well as, of course, heritage and history.
The Programme Manager will be responsible for the delivery of this ambitious four-year programme, requiring exceptional project and person management, interpersonal and relationship-building skills, creativity, organisation and flexibility. Experience of managing NLHF projects would be a benefit.
The post holder will report to the Managing Director of Coram Voice, and will be responsible for working across Coram to manage delivery of the programme.The role will liaise closely with Coram’s Executive Office and external partners including the London Metropolitan Archives.
