About the organisation and role:

Teach A Man To Fish is guided by a simple, all-encompassing mission: to empower young people with the skills they need to succeed, in school, work, and life. We believe that practical entrepreneurship education is key to tackling youth unemployment and poverty worldwide. That’s why we help young people around the world (in and out of school) to create fully functional youth-led businesses that are both educational and profitable.

We are a small team with big impact and even bigger aims! As Marketing and Communications Officer, you will play a vital role in supporting the team to grow the reach and impact of our two main programmes: The School Enterprise Challenge (our flagship programme for schools) and The Enterprise Adventure (our newest programme for teenagers).

This is a permanent, full-time role (37.5 hours per week, Monday-Friday). You will be expected to attend our office in Finsbury Park, London at least 2-3 days a week.

Please refer to our website (https://www.teachamantofish.org.uk/jobs-and-volunteering.html) for the full role description, list of responsibilities and person specification.

About you:

We are looking for a driven and proactive person to join us. The successful applicant will have a strong desire to help young people and teachers from a wide range of countries and cultural backgrounds to reach their potential through our programmes.

You should be able to demonstrate the potential to communicate with our participants in innovative and effective ways that not only guide them through the programmes but also make them feel valued and motivated. You will use insights from your interaction with participants to strengthen our marketing and communications strategy and make recommendations to the team on how to improve programme design and processes.

Each programme is run in English and Spanish and you will be the main point of liaison for participating schools and as such must possess strong written and verbal communication skills in both languages (CEFR Level C1 or above in Spanish).

This is a great opportunity for an individual passionate about international development to build communications and marketing skills and to gain valuable experience in the international development sector. There will be scope to contribute to the monitoring and evaluation of our programmes, get involved with funding proposals and support the programmes more widely.
