Build up is looking for a project lead to join its team in London, UK.
Build Up supports young people to have a practical role and a say in how their cities are built.
We run free construction projects for young people aged 6-23 years old to design and build permanent, lasting, public spaces and structures in their communities. On our projects, young people take meaningful decisions about their area and then make them happen.
Since 2014, we’ve built 20 structures and worked with 750 young people. These include our competition winning Making Places public space at Aldriche Way Estate, a Forest School Shelter at East London’s Cody Dock and the Whaler, a new play structure and performance space in Tottenham.
Build Up are now recruiting our first full time project lead to manage programmes across London. Duties include coordinating Build Up Hackney, supporting staff with design and construction expertise, and working closely with our director to ensure all projects are delivered safely, on time and to budget.
Alongside design and build experience, we’re looking for someone to build relationships in both local communities and public office, who understands the challenges our young people face and is committed to supporting young people to lead local change.
Build Up’s work is not conventional – this role engages a unique mix of skills and abilities. If you’re excited about learning and sharing your own experience, while helping to shape our organisation’s development, we would love to hear from you.
