Deputy Director | Future Roots Young People’s Service – Sherborne


Starting Salary will be in the region of £40,000

This is a full- time role working 37 hours per week, usually Monday to Friday. (Occasional weekend and evening work may be required).

This is an exciting new role to help Future Roots (limited by guarantee) improve, progress and develop its programs to Young people and families. We are an award-winning organisation that has been in operation for 16 years, based on a farm site between Dorchester and Sherborne on a small working farm.

The farm was set up to work with young people who needed different opportunities to reach their potential, academically and personally. We have seen the benefits for young people of working on the farm, with animals and creatively using all the countryside has to offer in partnership with schools and other organizations. Future Roots runs individual programmes, some therapeutic and some accredited qualification led. We are a registered National Open College Network centre and deliver our own accredited Future Farmers course and Functional Skills (Maths and English). The programs are funded by different commissioners in Dorset and Somerset including Dorset families matter, A.P and short breaks, early help mental health as well as other funding streams from the police crime commissioner, lottery, Dorset and Somerset community foundation.
