We’re recruiting for a Programme Development Manager

Fixed term (min 6 months) starting July 2017

£36,000 - £42,000 p.a. plus benefits



Nominet Trust is a grant giving charity and the UK’s leading dedicated social tech funder. We bring together, invest in and support organisations making innovative use of  the internet and digital technology to develop disruptive solutions that address complex social challenges. We complement this approach with programmes that address the growing need within the UK for digital skills and capabilities and issues relating to internet safety and security.

As a member of Nominet Trust’s Programme Team, you will be responsible for researching, designing and initiating a distinct range of complementary new programmes that have a strong and sustainable social impact, supporting delivery of our new 3-year strategy. This strategic role is key to connecting our overall purpose to tangible programme delivery and ensuring Nominet Trust’s work is founded upon well researched and evidenced propositions.

You will join an experienced and knowledgeable Programme Team, which includes project management and evaluation management expertise. You will also be an active member of the wider management and delivery team, supporting strategy, partnerships, communications and operations.

This opportunity arises at an exciting time for the Trust as we embark on a new 3-year strategy and revise our approach to programme design, development and delivery going beyond grants and investments.

The role will require engagement with other organisations spanning the public, private and social sectors to build a knowledge base and network, contributing to the Trust’s reputation as a thought leader on the use of technology to address social issues.

This is a fixed-term role, providing maternity cover for a minimum of six months, commencing in July 2017. Extension of the role duration beyond six months is a possibility; this would be discussed and agreed during the term based on organisation need.
