Are you keen to explore and support fundamental systemic change that can improve the lives of young people in Aberdeen?
Reboot is an initiative, led by Aberdeen Foyer and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, which utilises a ‘collective impact’ approach to generate systemic changes that can improve outcomes with vulnerable learners of secondary age across Aberdeen. The Programme Lead is a pivotal role within the Foyer, both from a strategic and operational perspective, and will provide a vital link between project level planning and discrete workstream activities.
We are now seeking an exemplary individual who is comfortable with complexity and can hold, understand and interpret multiple perspectives in order to lead, support and drive progress across all aspects of the Reboot initiative, including developing a small backbone support team. You will need to be highly organised and have the proven ability to build trusting relationships, which will enable you to create and nurture conditions that build collaborative relationships to advance bold systemic change.
If you think you have significant experience within social change and the proven ability to manage a complex, innovative multi-stakeholder initiative we would love to hear from you.
The Polar Academy is a charity programme that inspires through exploration.
We work with 13-17-year-old secondary school students and seek to build self-esteem through a rigorous training programme that ends in a Greenlandic expedition.

The Polar Academy assists them to grow and build their own self confidence and ultimately become Ambassadors in their school and local area. After their experience on their return to Scotland, they provide the living, breathing proof that dreams are attainable and that ordinary pupils can achieve the truly extraordinary.
