About InnovateHer

We are on a mission : To get girls ready for the tech industry and the industry ready for girls.

We run three strands of activity to help us achieve this – our award winning school programme for girls, our industry membership network and campaigning to raise awareness on a national level.

Only 19% of tech roles are female in the North West, and just 20% of computing science pupils are female in the UK. The idea that particular jobs or interests are for girls and others are for boys is false. We created InnovateHer to address this; it is a national movement dedicated to giving girls aged 12-16 the self-belief and skills needed to pursue a career in technology. We use industry role models, events and schools-based programmes to reverse gender inequality, improve digital skills and invest in the future of our young people.

Our programmes teach essential digital skills, but they also connect girls with new passions, raise their employment prospects and enhance their chances of a more fulfilling life and career. Because we believe that everyone, regardless of background or identity, should have the freedom and opportunity to pursue any future they choose. You can read our latest social impact report here.

The industry membership offer has been created based on our personal experiences of working closely with digital and technology organisations. It covers aspects of talent and recruitment, creating inclusive cultures, and sharing of best practice. Not only does our membership network directly support the educational programme we deliver, but it showcases the innovative organisations in the UK who already recognise the need for equality and diversity in the sector. Find out more here.

Over the next year our ambition is to build our network across the U.K. We have recently expanded into Manchester and have over 25 schools-based programmes confirmed in the next academic year. We’re also launching in London in April 2020. To help us fulfil this growing demand for our services, we are seeking to grow our core team.

As InnovateHer is a fast growing small business, this is an exciting time to join our small team of 6. You’ll have the opportunity to input into how we do things, putting in place new ways of working and coming up with ideas to help improve our processes as we grow. We celebrated our 2nd birthday in 2019, so we’re a young organisation with a big ambition to change the world! We need you to be a self starter who is up for the challenge of working in a startup environment and the opportunities for personal growth that this brings.

Role outline:

As a key member of the team you will play an important role in raising the profile of InnovateHer externally and helping to deliver the wider organisational strategy. You will be responsible for growing and engaging with our teen and adult communities online by creating campaigns and coming up with new and innovative ways to reach them across multiple platforms. You will also focus on growing our corporate membership network, working closely with our corporate community manager. You will be responsible for implementing the marketing strategy and monitoring results via various analytical tools, making recommendations for improvements based on your data and research.

Crucially, we need a real people-person: someone who can continue to build trusted partnerships with a wide range of external organisations, including our members and the other event organisers we have formed partnerships with. You’ll be comfortable with representing InnovateHer at events. You may even have some events management experience.

Finally, we need a self-starter: someone committed and entrepreneurial; who is passionate about developing InnovateHer over the coming years.
