"Neurodiversity Works" Project Lead
The Cavendish Education Group is seeking to recruit a Project Lead for our new Employment and Career strategy for the children and young people at each of our schools and colleges.
“Neurodiversity Works” is a new and emerging strategy that will provide a multi-faceted approach to enhance the employment and long term career aspirations and outcomes for all children and young people, particularly those who ‘think differently’ and who might increase the neurodiversity within the workforce in the UK and beyond.
It will focus initially upon the Schools within the Cavendish Education Group but will also look at how similar aspirations can be championed more broadly in the educational and employment landscape.
The postholder will be responsible for further developing and refining the concept, implementing the agreed strategy and creating the infrastructure necessary to successfully launch. The postholder will be a skilled self-starter, will be able to work with a range of colleagues at various levels and with various backgrounds and will have a background that is immersed in relevant experience of successfully supporting those who think differently.
The role will be remote and will involve some home working but there will be an expectation of extensive and regular travel to all Cavendish Education Schools, new non-Cavendish Schools that join the Neurodiversity Works strategy, potential employers and Head Office (Central London). Some overnight stays will also be necessary.
Initially a role within Cavendish Education, the new role of Project Lead is subject to change with regards to its position within and around the group, which should be fully understood by the candidate prior to application. Neurodiversity Works is evolving as a concept and whilst this does not change the fundamentals of the role, it should be understood that the role may either remain as part of Cavendish Education or may form part of a newly formed organisation (e.g. a trust or charitable foundation) that is closely aligned to as opposed to part of the Cavendish Education Group at some point (as yet undefined) in the future.
First stage interviews will be held in the last week of September.
To apply, please send your CV and contact details to Emma Wylie, Director of People.
