A Generation Innovation Project Co-ordinator to join our team
We are hiring a Generation Innovation Project Co-ordinator to deliver Generation Innovation programmes within schools and FE Colleges throughout Northern Ireland.
Generation Innovation comprises a suite of programmes and events designed to energise the imaginations and aspirations of local young people by increasing their awareness of future careers in tech, innovation, and entrepreneurship. As a Project Co-ordinator, you will be responsible for delivering workshops and facilitating group activities to students in schools and FE Colleges, aged 16-18 years old. You will work closely with the Generation Innovation Programme Manager and provide support on any other activities needed to deliver the programme including the Work Experience Programme. The role will require a large amount of travel (claiming for fuel is permitted).
Generation Innovation aims to inform, upskill and empower the young people of this generation to thrive as the next leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs of the future.
The perfect candidate for this position should be passionate about supporting young people to reach their full potential; previous experience in programme design and delivery will be essential to create high-energy, engaging and impactful events and initiatives for young people.
