WOMEN’STEC is recruiting a full-time Programme Coordinator for its new Promoting Opportunities Programme: #notjustforboys.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to develop and manage this flagship project, ‘Promoting Opportunities Programme: #notjustforboys’ through the pilot and rollout phases.

WOMEN’STEC is a charity based in North Belfast. It was born out of a recognised need for the creation of non-traditional training and employment opportunities for women in industries traditionally associated with men, including construction skills, engineering and IT.

WOMEN’STEC has recently developed a new, exciting and innovative programme called ‘Promoting Opportunities #notjustforboys’ which targets girls and young women (12+), encouraging them to consider careers opportunities in work areas deemed non-traditional to females, initially in the area of construction.  The programme will work in partnership with schools and youth organisations, Construction Industry Training Board (CITB-NI), further education colleges, training organisations and the wider construction industry, to heighten awareness of the huge range of ‘non-traditional’ careers available and provide a seamless and supported pathway for girls from disadvantaged areas to move into these well-paid jobs. The programme will support the industry in engaging with females to improve diversity and inclusion and assist in tackling the skills deficit within the industry to meet the current and future demand. The programme is being delivered with support from CITB NI, Gilbert-Ash Ltd, TEO Urban Villages, JP Corry and the Ireland Funds.

You will be responsible for all aspects of the day-to-day development and delivery of the programme, and will work with the CEO and Business Development Manager to ensure it is sustainable beyond 2019. Salary NJC point 23 (£26,470) – This post is secured until December 2019 and will be renewed subject to securing additional funding.

To apply, please forward completed forms (application, declaration, monitoring) no later than 12 noon on Wednesday 7th November. We apologise but we cannot accept emailed or faxed applications.
