Key responsibilities

  • Lead potential partners through the partnership pipeline to attending facilitator training.
  • Support partners in building excellent relationships with local authorities and/or schools.
  • Understand and actively listen to the needs of potential partners and their local areas/communities.
  • Attend events to raise awareness of Kids Matter, including public speaking, running exhibition stalls, and liaising with third-party organisations to distribute materials at events.
  • Work closely with our Communications Team to design and plan campaigns they can run to build awareness of Kids Matter across Merseyside and the North West.
  • Ensure records are accurately maintained and held in accordance with GDPR in Kids Matter’s document library and CRM system.

Programme delivery

  • Opportunity as the work grows to deliver Kids Matter programmes, as appropriate, to model and kickstart new partnerships.

Wider team involvement

  • Contribute towards staff prayers and, on occasion, lead ‘Thought for the Day’.
