Having grown rapidly since our launch in 2012, we are looking for a highly motivated person to join our team to deliver Upshot to the not-for-profit sector.
Originally developed by the Football Foundation – The Premier League, The FA and Government’s charity, Upshot was designed to manage, monitor and evidence community projects. Upshot has recently been set up as a Community Interest Company (CIC) and is now being used by over 850 different organisations, both sport and non-sport, in the UK and internationally - ranging from local authorities to national charities, NGBs, Active Partnerships, Corporate Social Responsibility Schemes, housing associations, universities and sport for development NGOs.
Work at Upshot is varied and flexible and as part of a small team of eight people, there is a lot of potential to specialise in various aspects of running an innovative start-up. Our range of clients also allows for significant exposure to the wider third sector and the chance to build a strong network of relationships.
As a social enterprise, all our profits are reinvested back into our business, our product and our community. We love what we do and are looking for people who are enthusiastic and passionate about supporting our clients and partners and helping us grow our business. You will need to be a highly effective communicator, have strong attention to detail, be comfortable with Excel and online systems and have a willingness to dedicate yourself to the team and the enhancement of the system and sector.
You will be rewarded by working within a dedicated vibrant team, have excellent opportunities to develop your skills and experience and progress quickly within the organisation, all while having the satisfaction of helping hundreds of charities evidence their impact. Our benefits include a wonderful social atmosphere, passionate people, a generous pension scheme, health care provision, 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays), and flexible working hours.
In short, it is a fantastic opportunity to make a major contribution to one of the most innovative online systems in the not-for-profit and sports sector.
Upshot is looking to develop a workforce that effectively represents the broad, diverse national constituency that we support and which provides for the broadest range of opinions. While we will appoint on merit, Upshot is committed to establishing a workforce that represents a diverse range of backgrounds, knowledge, experience and personal attributes. Accordingly, we would encourage candidates from all walks of life and backgrounds to apply. All applicants must have the right / permanent right to work in the UK.
