Spectra is not a charity, but we are not driven by profit.
Our aim is to break down structural barriers to opportunities and support disadvantaged young people to fulfill their potential in education and vocation.
Based in the former Chubb Lock Works factory in Wolverhampton, our team includes people with backgrounds in learning & development, law, higher education, marketing and agile project management. We accommodate different working styles and patterns as much as possible, and we encourage personal and professional development outside of work.
Our own social value policy is to commit a percentage of our profits each year to supporting a young person who is leaving, or has recently left, the care system. We call this ‘sponsorship’ and it includes a holistic package, according to the needs of the young person, ranging from support with accommodation, transport, and daily provisions, to education, training, mentoring and employability costs. We regularly review our social value policy and will keep it updated here.
We are looking for two new members of the team to help drive our Prison and Prison-leavers strategy forward. You’ll be working within a network of prisons, interacting with care leavers daily and helping them to plan for life after release and take up opportunities through the Covenant. Job specification coming soon.
