Do you want to play a key role in helping to realise a unique vision?

We are seeking a dynamic and experienced project manager to help deliver our first Residential Therapeutic Community (RTC).  The RTC is an innovative 1 year pilot project to help 16-25 year olds with drug/alcohol problems journey to a life free from addictive behaviour.


Job Title: Project Manager

Location: Hertford, with some travel (own car essential)

Start date: As soon as possible

Duration: 12 months

Contract type: Fixed Term


Currently there are no residential services specifically for under-18s with substance misuse problems in England.  Transitions RTC is a Christian charity establishing the first Residential Therapeutic Community (RTC) in the UK to help young people aged 16-25 with drug/alcohol problems and addictive behaviour, who need intensive support to gain recovery.

Transitions is residential; offering not just housing but a family home, as each resident is accommodated by a host family.  Our therapeutic programme is holistic; addressing physical, mental/emotional and spiritual needs and development.  We are community-focussed; the young people will live with a family and ‘do life’ together with professional workers and volunteers, making a contribution to the wider community.

We are seeking someone with a vision to play a key full time role in the organisation as the Project Manager for the duration of the pilot project.  There is a GOR that this person is a practising Christian (see below*).

The successful applicant will work closely with the Chief Executive to ensure the pilot is ready to receive young people in June.  After this the Project Manager will be responsible for ensuring the smooth running and operation of the project.  This includes programme coordination and implementation, budget management, securing funding, developing and maintaining partnerships, managing risk and evaluation.  Their role will also involve aspects of programme delivery including one-to-one key-working and group work as well as transporting the young people.

If you are a committed Christian and talented project manager with energy and passion to make a difference in the lives of young people with drug and alcohol problems, then we would like to hear from you.

Closing Date: 5pm, Sunday 17th April
