London South East Colleges is a successful and innovative College operating with sites across Bromley, Orpington, Bexley and Greenwich. With nearly 14,000 students and 1,000 members of staff, the College is a major employer in the area and makes a significant impact on the lives and future prospects of its learners who travel from across London to study with us. The College is also the sponsor of London South East Academies Trust, a growing Multi Academy which is rapidly developing a track record of academic and financial success. With a combined turnover of circa GBP 65m and the ambitious growth plans of the group, there has never been a better time to join this exciting organisation.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Development Manager to lead on a new exciting GLA project called 'Getting Back on Track. 'Getting Back on Track' is a high profile GLA commissioned program which will change the lives of young people living in South East London. The post holder will be responsible for ensuring that the program supports young people who have recently dropped out from their level 2/3 studies at school or College. The activities will be delivered in conjunction with a range of stakeholders and will identify, engage with, and provide immediate support to early leavers so that they successfully enter and sustain employment or return to education.

To be successful in this role the ideal candidate will have experience of partnership working, including negotiating, communicating and joint working with internal/external organisations to achieve outcomes, experience of working with and developing complex ESF/ GLA/ Local Government projects, and be able to demonstrate commitment to an inclusive working environment, ensuring equality and diversity.

In return we will offer you a competitive salary and a generous holiday allowance.

As the College supports a number of children and vulnerable adults, all staff are exempt from Section 4(2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Accordingly, most staff will be subject to either a 'Standard' or 'Enhanced' DBS (formerly CRB) check.
