Who we are

We believe that you don’t have to go half way round the world for experiences that thrill you, challenge you and shake up your worldview. That’s why we’ve launched a very different kind of gap year.

In a matter of months, we’ve got some incredible partners together – like Teach First, Citizens UK and Centrepoint, grown the Year Here family to include some impressive social entrepreneurs, and got great publicity in the Evening Standard, on BBC London and in The Guardian.

We’re a small and committed team of four, including a Clore Fellow, a BBC sports journalist and a foodie, working between 1 and 7 days a week on the business. We care deeply about being really effective professionals, learning with restless vigour and having fun along the way.

Responsibilities

Above all, we’re looking for a self-starter who will flourish in a startup leadership role. So, as much as possible, we want to craft this role around the skills and experience of the best candidate.

Some of the big challenges that we’d like you to take on are:
  • Recruitment – launching a nationwide search for the highest-potential 18 year olds – and hooking them in with compelling marketing campaigns and innovative, immersive events.
  • Training – getting your hands dirty in facilitating parts of the 2013 programme – ensuring that fellows’ experiences are truly transformative.
  • Sales + partnerships - unlocking tonnes of opportunities in small care homes, schools and homeless shelters across the country – and working out how we manage 100s of relationships with charities, startups, busy advisors, government and investors.
  • Ops – setting up super-efficient systems – HR, financial, CRM and impact measurement – to keep us running smoothly and concentrating on the important stuff.
Requirements
  • Exceptional communication skills. You’ll be charming, persuasive and a great listener – helping you secure investment, win business and develop partnerships.
  • Entrepreneurialism. You’ll be used to achieving a lot with a little. You might have set something up in the past or you’re planning to in the future.
  • A great head for strategy, coupled with a sharp eye for the detail: you’ll be extremely organised and analytical.
  • Connected. You’re well connected in your own industry and others, naturally building a powerful network of peers and mentors.
  • A passion for young people and serious social impact.
Nice to haves
  • Experience of teaching/delivering training
  • Experience of recruiting graduates or other young people.
  • Familiarity with social innovation and the UK social sector.
  • Sales and client relationship management experience.
