Are you passionate about helping children and young people in distress get the targeted help and support they need? Do you have some experience at scoping funding bids, drafting monitoring and evaluation reports and using Salesforce or a similar database to run reports and evidence impact in a charity setting? This role is suited to someone with the ability to work flexibly, both as part of a team and on your own initiative.   

The Projects Officer is a critical new role at the wïsh centre. Every year we prevent over 100 children and young people from self harming or from being sexually exploited, and have an evidenced based system to capture their improvement journeys and outcomes. In 2019 we completed a two year replication of our services that was evaluated by Government think tank The Centre for Mental Health, who confirmed our 90% recovery rates for young people who self harm.  

 Working closely with the wïsh centre Director, we need you to help us secure the funding we need to support as many young people, as possible, and to report widely on the positive changes we achieve with them.  

 You need to be educated to degree level or equivalent, with two years relevant experience of researching and developing funding bids and monitoring reports in a charity environment. If you are highly organised, good at data and can see and act on opportunities, you will be rewarded with seeing the direct impact of your work on the young people we support.
