About this role

Are you passionate about working with people living in financial insecurity,   and organisations of  Barking & Dagenham,  to design a programme that moves people to financial security. 

Turn2us is a national charity tackling poverty, we make grants to people living in financial insecurity and provide information to support people to understand their rights to social security and other available grants they may be able to access.   

Local Programmes is a new way of working for us.  We believe to reach the people our national programmes are not reaching we need to work with people where they live and local organisations to create programmes that support lasting change, both  to people’s lives and to the systems that  cause financial insecurity. 

We are building a new team to work in three local areas across the United Kingdom and are looking for a programme manager to lead our Barking & Dagenham work with local partners and residents.  If you are committed to challenging the causes of poverty, please join our exciting new team. 

For an informal conversation call Jackie Brett on 020 8834 9238
