Role Models is an impact driven education provider. We focus on life skills that promote social & emotional wellbeing and dynamic thinking, helping young people to thrive in life; both at home and their future workplace.
We complement traditional academic education by delivering online & offline courses for 3-13 year olds that develop young peoples’ skills in leadership, confidence, resilience, creative problem solving, collaboration and growth mindset. These skills really impact the everyday lives of the young people we work with.
We started Role Models because we know that academic success alone is not enough to build tomorrow’s leaders. The World Economic Forum Future of Jobs Report explains how life skills are the most essential skills for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Even more importantly, we know the life skills we help children to develop are essential for them to be independent, happy and to grow into well-rounded adults. Every person needs these skills to thrive.
Our mission is to positively impact and inspire a generation of young people around the world to be the best version of themselves.
Our vision is to be the global leader in developing life skills, with the goal of transforming the lives of at least a million young people. Now, more than ever, the world needs people with the empathy, resilience and confidence to thrive.
This opportunity will suit someone who is a proactive, self-starter with an entrepreneurial mindset who thrives on challenge and has a track record of delivering excellent results. You must be driven, ambitious and be able to communicate well.
Reporting to the Managing Director, you will be supporting the team in a number of ways, including but not limited to:
Our offices are on Stormont Road, Battersea, SW11 5EN but, at the moment, we’re spending 2 days/week working from the office and 3 days/week working from home.
Role Models is only 7 years old so the team is relatively small but well-formed and great fun! We have recently closed a £915k funding round with a view to aggressive expansion both online and offline over the next few years, so there is lots of work and you will need to be up for a challenge.
We have 9 full-time employees and 4 outsourced part-time employees. As a result, you would have the opportunity to make a huge difference to the trajectory of this growing business and would be given significant responsibility.
As we are a small and exciting growth business, we pride ourselves on providing a seamless service to our clients. This will on occasion result in a need to communicate at weekends, whether with clients or other members of the team.
We’re also very proud to have been ranked in the ‘top 100 organisations to escape to’ in both 2019 and 2020!
