Ministry of Stories

Archived: Deputy Director

We are a fast moving and creative organisation and need talented, committed and motivated staff to help us inspire a nation of young storytellers.

The Ministry of Stories is a writing and mentoring centre for young people in east London.

We inspire eight to 18 year olds through the power of storytelling, empowering them to unleash their imaginations, build their confidence and self-respect and enhance their communication skills.

Through a range of innovative writing programmes, and one-to-one mentoring, we help young people discover and realise their own creative potential. Then we provide a publishing platform for young writers, so these fresh, exciting voices are shared with the world.

It all begins when visitors arrive and pass through Hoxton Street Monster Supplies, where they can stop and shop for fang floss and tinned fear or continue through the secret door to the Ministry…

Our people are key to our success – both staff and volunteers.

We are looking for a confident and organised senior manager to work closely with the Director to deliver our business plan and lead a resilient organisation.

Ministry of Stories has developed a programme of creative learning from its Hoxton home with good evidence of impact, as well as efficient operational systems. It has a strong track record in fundraising, with a broad portfolio of income streams including large and small trusts and foundations, corporate partners, individual donors and earned income. We are now growing our work to include a London based youth mentoring scheme, a digital mentoring platform and a national family of organisations and knowledge transfer programme.

We are looking for a confident and organised senior manager to work closely with the Director to deliver our business plan and lead a resilient organisation. You’ll be a forward planner with an ability to respond to opportunity and manage risk. With keen attention to detail as well as the overview, you’ll have strong financial management skills. You’ll bring excellent people management and communication to the role. You’ll drive great fundraising and trading, and understand how our communications strategy can best support this. Working closely with the Director, you’ll develop a sustainable organisation and take it to the next level of operation.
