new job vacancy

Wings South West is looking for an experienced professional to join their management team to help guide the charity through its next phase as we start to emerge from the constraints of the pandemic.

Fundamentally you will be a people-person, with a teaching qualification and recent teaching experience. It is unlikely that someone with less than seven years’ experience of teaching will have the appropriate level of expertise for a role that will also need a strong commitment to, and an extensive working knowledge of the principles of safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

This enhanced DBS position requires an understanding of, and empathy with, marginalised, disadvantaged and often disaffected children, young people and adults, with a determination to build appropriate caring relationships. The appointed individual will also need to demonstrate their leadership capabilities as well as having proven project, organisational and people management skills.

If you feel you have the background and experience and match the person specification then in the first instance please send your latest CV together with a brief covering letter explaining your interest and how you meet these criteria to Paul at

A more detailed person specification, job description and application form will be forwarded to suitable applicants, with interviews likely to be held during weeks beginning the 15th and 22nd November 2021.
