We’re Hiring: Looking for a Programme Manager to join the Good Help Team

13 MAY 2021


Since our launch in 2018 with the support of Nesta, the National Lottery and Osca, we’ve been working to champion help that supports people to identify their own purpose, build confidence and take action.

We’re excited to announce that we are looking for a new member to join the Good Help team in the form of a talented and knowledgeable Programme Manager. This is a lynch-pin role in the Good Help start-up. 


The Role 

The primary focus of the role will be managing the Good Help Local Authority Programme, where we are supporting places across the UK to improve the Good Help they offer, like our work in Rochdale. This will involve liaising closely with public service providers such as councils and CCGs; as well as Good Help practitioner organisations to redesign service arrangements to better support Good Help. 

The secondary focus of the role will be to help run and develop the Good Help organisation. You will have a real enthusiasm for organisation, research and digital communications. You will be a self-starter who is able to work alone and in teams as necessary. You will need to have a passion for the Good Help mission as well as great interpersonal skills and a refined intellect.

We are aware that the role described is wide-ranging, this is because Good Help is a new venture with a very small core team, each having to be very flexible to deliver the project. Our assumption is that we will need to modify this role over time based on what the Good Help programme needs and the skills and interests the successful candidate brings to the role.  Similarly, because we know that traditional roles don’t often fit easily with people’s lives, we commit to working with the successful candidate to design the way this job works to fit with their life.

This is a remote role, working with people and organisations in the UK. There is the potential to expand the role to become a leader of Good Help. The salary range intends to reflect both this potential future growth in role, as well as the varying levels of experience different candidates will bring.

Good Help is about more than projects and programmes; it is about how all of us relate to one another. Every time we interact with friends, family, neighbours and colleagues, we have the chance to build one another’s belief that we matter and can create change. But too often this doesn’t happen. Over time, this project hopes to embed a deeper awareness across society of the principles, practices and responsibility of offering Good Help.


 Person Specification

We’re looking for someone with a minimum of two years’ experience in a comparable ‘office’ work environment, amazing organisational skills, excellent verbal and written communication skills and research skills, being able to analyse data, undertake literature reviews, interviews and evaluation.

Ideally, the candidate would have experience in the public service sector, preferably also having experince of business development and fundraising.

Any candidate should have enthusiasm for being part of a start-up environment and commitment and enthusiasm for the Good Help mission, vision and values.
