Job Description

Enabling Enterprise is an award-winning social enterprise. Our mission is to ensure that one day, everyone builds the skills, experiences and aspirations to succeed – beyond just a set of qualifications.

We do this through supporting schools with an award-winning curriculum and support to build their students’ essential skills – from 3- to 18-year-olds. We are leading the Skills Builder Partnership, which includes 500 schools, 40 skills-building organisations and 130 top employers including hospitals, airports and leading international companies.

We are looking for a self-starter with a collaborative and highly organised approach. The ideal team member will demonstrate a passion for impact and will be able to support that through high quality written communication as well as experience in working with budgets and other key data.

We are looking for someone with attention to detail and the ability to get things done by taking ownership and working with others to achieve shared goals.

From our three offices in London, Birmingham and Manchester, we currently work with over 120,000 students in schools across the country. We are in a period of strong growth, with backing from sector leading organisations including the CBI, the National Education Union and the Careers & Enterprise Company.
