Deputy Director
Deadline: Thu 20 Jul 2017
The Ministry of Stories is a writing and mentoring centre where anyone aged eight to 18 can come and discover their own gift for writing

You’ll find us hidden behind our own fantastical shop Hoxton Street Monster Supplies. Through a range of innovative writing programmes, and one-to-one mentoring, we help young people discover and realise their own creative potential. We build confidence, self-respect and communication skills in both workshops for schools and out-of-school writing clubs. Then we provide a publishing platform for young writers, so these fresh, exciting voices are shared with the world. Nick Hornby, Lucy Macnab and Ben Payne founded the Ministry of Stories in 2010. Since then, around 2500 young people a year take part in our free writing programmes and projects. 

As it reaches its seventh birthday, MoS has developed a core programme of creative learning from its Hoxton home with good evidence of impact, as well as efficient and robust operational systems. It has a strong track record in fundraising, with a broad portfolio of income streams including large and small trusts and foundations, corporate partners, individual donors and earned income. We are now growing our work to include a London based youth mentoring scheme, a digital mentoring platform and a national family of organisations and knowledge transfer programme.

We are looking for a confident and organised senior manager to work closely with the Director to deliver our business plan and lead a resilient organization. You’ll be a forward planner with an ability to respond to opportunity and manage risk. With keen attention to detail as well as the overview, you'll have strong financial management skills. You’ll bring excellent people management and communication skills to the role. You’ll drive great fundraising and trading, and understand how our communications strategy can best support this. Working closely with the Director, you'll embrace the opportunity to develop a sustainable organization and take it to the next level of operation.
