We’ve an immediate opening for someone to support in the ongoing organisation and delivery of our learning programmes; both in the core YCN programme and also those tailored to creatively-driven clients including Dr. Martens, Ennismore and adidas. This is a great opportunity for someone interested in events, learning and delivering experiences that enable people and that people love.


YCN (You Can Now) is a learning network, established in 2001. We help creatively-driven organisations build the capability they need to achieve their goals.

We partner with a fine line up of market-leading clients; from big global retailers like Dr Martens and Lush Cosmetics, to fast growing tech stars like Farfetch and WeTransfer; extraordinary charities like the NSPCC and Scope to award-winning creative agencies like forpeople and Koto; bringing them together to build new skills, discover new ways of working and solve problems in motivating and connected ways. We do this through our open, cross-organisational learning programmes; and by working directly with clients on tailored programmes too. And through our longstanding New Now programme we run initiatives to stimulate and showcase the next generation of creative talent, across a network of Universities, Colleges and Art & Design schools nationally.

The Programme Coordinator opening

This role will suit someone relatively newly graduated — or into the world of work — but with some relevant experience under their belt. You'll be working as part of a close-knit central team, and liaising daily with our super-engaged community, ensuring the learning experience we provide them is efficiently, effectively and memorably delivered; that we're delivering an experience that fits both with our values and their high expectations.

Responsibilities will include:

- Liaising with our members in person and remotely to understand their learning goals
- Managing the signup process for YCN events and workshops
- Supporting our company culture with energy and ideas
- Helping to set up and introduce YCN events and workshops
- Liaising with brilliant external subject experts
- Helping with the ongoing scheduling and planning of future events
- Researching potential speakers for events, and new practitioners for future workshops

As such our ideal candidate will have:

• Excellent written and verbal communication skills

• Brilliant people skills

• A willingness to contribute ideas to help us continually get better

• A love for organisation, research

• A creative mindset, curiosity and love for learning
