Further details about the role

Role Purpose & Description:

ELAM was a school born out of industry need and partnership. Success sees our young people - from all backgrounds and particularly from underrepresented backgrounds - entering the creative workforce and thriving. This will only happen if they receive the most plugged-in, industry relevant training on offer anywhere in the UK so that our vision, for all children growing up in the UK seeing themselves reflected in UK culture, is one step closer to being realised.

The Alumni Manager is a new full time role that will draw on aspects of previous roles that had industry and alumni as their focus. We are looking for a professional to grow and lead our alumni strategy, provision and build partnerships so that we can deliver our vision for our Alumni for years to come. They will do this through their exceptional abilities in partnership building, employability and work readiness support, individual and group support with our alumni and develop strong links between alumni and current trainees so that they are fully supported even after graduating from ELAM.

The Alumni Manager will be someone who is passionate and informed about engaging the ELAM alumni community, passionate about developing strategies around how to support and create pathways into the creative industries for underrepresented creatives.

Setting our Alumni up for success: ELAM recognises that talent alone is not always enough to succeed in the creative industries. Unfortunately, this continues to be particularly true for traditionally underrepresented groups.

Commitment to safeguarding

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Our recruitment process follows the keeping children safe in education guidance.

Offers of employment may be subject to the following checks (where relevant):
childcare disqualification
Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
online and social media
prohibition from teaching
right to work
satisfactory references
suitability to work with children

You must tell us about any unspent conviction, cautions, reprimands or warnings under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975.
