Project Manager Vacancy

Closing date: 27th February 2019

Location: Leeds

Hours: 21 hours per week (with potential to increase up to 35)

Salary: £30,000 pro rata + 3% pension contribution


The Leeds based video story charity Lippy People are seeking to employ a Project Manager who can lead the development and delivery of existing and new projects, in particular the ‘Life, Loss, Learning & Legacy’ project that supports the bereaved and people at the end of life.

We believe that video storytelling coaching is a unique approach that supports people to understand that their life experience is a story. We use video storytelling as the vehicle for coaching people to tell and share their overlooked, unheard stories and put them in front of audiences where they will challenge perceptions and encourage relationship building. We help people to value the knowledge they have gained from their lived experience and to identify and achieve their goals.

The charity was established in 2015 and the post of Project Manager is critical to how the charity will build on existing and new project activities, especially the ‘Life, Loss, Learning & Legacy’ project, a project we see as underpinning our organisational growth and sustainability over the next 3 years.
