I am excited to be working with an amazing neurological organisation in search of a Project manager to focus on two new projects.

Main duties:
Project one.
Re-design and relaunch of an integral project:
The summer events are for families and children who live with a neurological Syndrome. They take place at adventure-holiday type venues across the country, to allow children and families to meet others and socialise and have fun.
The charity plan to do these events on a bigger scale, and have identified a need to improve processes, risk-management, emergency procedures etc. that ensure the events are fully safe for all and that unforeseen events can be dealt with.
The project involves thinking through the planning and implementation of these events from beginning to end; i.e. evaluation and contracting of venues, recruiting guests, event planning, staffing levels, back-up processes, safeguarding etc through to eventual feedback from participants.
The deliverable would be a detailed policy document and tools/templates covering everything necessary for the safe and successful planning and running of these events.

Project two.
The Awards:
The organisation is launching an annual Youth Creativity Awards scheme to inspire and showcase the artistic creativity - visual, musical, performance - of young people living with the syndrome.

The Awards scheme will take place entirely online. Entries will be invited through an Open Call for Entries to be advertised on the charity's website and social media. A short list for each category in both age groups will be made by the Award judges. A programme of creative activities for young people with the syndrome will run alongside the Awards.
The project involves refining the outline design of the scheme and managing the running of the Awards from initial call for entries, through submissions, judging, public voting, and showcasing of winning works in a creative 'Hall of Fame' on the charity website.
Among the responsibilities will be to specify the practicalities:
Digital format for works to be entered and the process for judging, shortlisting and final voting
Recruitment of judges, coordination of the open call for entries
Coordination of shortlisting of entries
Design and implementation of the online public vote for the final winners.
