Circl

Delivery Officer

Do you want to work for an ambitious social start-up? Do you want to grow with a company with international expansion plans? Are you passionate about supporting underrepresented young people to become the leaders of tomorrow?

Delivery Officer

Location: Remote + London Office (Paddington Works) 1 / 2 days a week 

Salary: £23-25K base (experience dependent) 

We have a really exciting opportunity to play a pivotal role as a Delivery Officer at Circl. You will be responsible for leading on Future Leader attraction, recruitment and retention as well as programme management for our Circl programme with our business professionals and our ambitious young people from underrepresented backgrounds. This is a truly varied role for an organised and personable self-starter. 

What Do We Do?

At Circl, we believe in a world where anyone can learn to lead, regardless of their background. We believe in a new kind of leadership – one that has empathy, inclusion and empowerment at its core.

The Circl Leadership Development Programme is the first of its kind. We train professionals at top businesses alongside Future Leaders from under-represented backgrounds in 'the coach approach' to leadership.

Each professional is matched 1 to 1 with a Future Leader and they apply the skills they learn by coaching each other on their real-life challenges and goals. Everyone's an equal on the programme with the young people coaching the professionals just as much as the professional coach the young people. What’s more all participants (both professionals and young future leaders) receive the same level of professional coaching qualification recognised by the Association for Coaching on completion.

It’s a uniquely effective way to help businesses build a coaching culture, while giving talented young people the skills they need to succeed and achieve their goals.

The business model is also unique as the companies that participate in the programmes pay for their teams to participate (normally in cohorts of 20), while also paying for the experience and certification for the young Future Leaders.

We’ve already done some amazing work with lots of young people and businesses includingMcKinsey, Facebook, Uber, eBay, O2, Etsy, British Land, Allen & Overy, Google, Hello Fresh, Innocent, Landsec, PepsiCo, Trustpilot and many more.
