We are hiring!

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Manager (Maternity cover) to become the pioneering member of staff at Smart Works Birmingham for one year.

As the only full-time member of staff, the role will require a self-starting and proactive approach, excellent organisational skills and the ability to take sole responsibility of all aspects of management of our Birmingham centre.


The right candidate will be able to build strong working relations with our Chair and Board of Trustees, as well as staff of Smart Works HQ. There will be a lot of interaction with a diverse group including clients, referral partners (for example Jobcentre Plus and Work Programme Providers), corporate and retail audiences, and our dedicated team of skilled volunteers, as well as managing our office apprentice. A highly organised and positive individual, you will be passionate about empowering women to thrive in work and life. You will be a strong communicator, both verbally and in writing, be able to multi-task, think on your feet and bring a determination to meet our aim of helping as many women as we can back into work.

Overall you would relish the opportunity of working in a small and newly established charity and all the challenges that it will entail.
