We're hiring a Business Development Manager!

You Make It (YMI) is a dynamic, award-winning and evolving charity that runs 4 month-long holistic empowerment programmes for young unemployed and underemployed women from inner London. We have continued to grow rapidly since our formation by the CEO in 2011 with incredible support from a range of funders for our core programmes. In addition to our race equalities work focused on women empowerment, we are dedicated to dismantling racism through You Change It (YCI). This successful anti-racism allyship course is aimed at employers and was pioneered by our CEO in the wake of George Floyd’s murder.

In just 15 months, largely through word of mouth, YCI has strengthened the longer-term financial sustainability of the charity by generating earned income, and we’re proud to have taken hundreds of people through the course by working with brilliant companies from varying sectors and sizes – just some include music platform Mixcloud, fashion label Olivia von Halle, and charities like the Centre for Ageing Better.

We are now looking for a Business Development Manager to grow our YCI base. This is a critical role to generate your own leads and take them to close, as well as leads from the rest of the internal senior management team that you’ll be a part of. 

NOTE: We are very keen to hear from someone with lived experience of what it feels like to be on the receiving end of racism.
