Welcome to Reach Volunteering. We are a community and registered charity that connects people, skills and good causes.

To apply for this role, and any other on our platform, you need to be based in the UK, have at least three years of experience using the skills you wish to volunteer in a professional capacity or have lived experience (for trustee roles). Read more about our criteria.

Roots Academy is planning to launch an online course for Muslim professionals. We are seeking a Project Manager to lead on design, implementation and review of the programme.

What will you be doing?

The top 1% of British Muslim intellectual capital lies in its professionals – doctors, consultants, dentists, engineers and strategists – all of whom use their intelligence and capacity to improve worldly outcomes for corporations, but do not have the knowledge, motivation, or channels to leverage their skillset to further God’s cause.

From 2021 – 2024 Roots Academy developed and delivered an innovative and contemporary curriculum that has proved effective with the 17-25 year old audience at university.

Since then, a number of Muslim corporate networks have reached out to explore an implementation of this educational program in partnership with their networks. We have been trialling the same with one big-4 corporate network, and this year we plan to formalise and officially launch the offering for Muslim professionals at-large with multiple Muslim professional networks on board. The vision is that 1,000 Muslim professionals have experienced a complete life transformation in the next 5 years, as a result of this program.

The Project Manager for this initiative will need to be a professional, and ideally will have experience developing and delivering similar development programs for Muslims. They will need to be scrappy, making do with a minimal budget and growing a team around them, managing the various stakeholders (instructors, internal teams, external partner orgs, etc.) to. promote, manage, and deliver the course.

At Roots, we look for people who operate with Ihsan – that means they take this job as seriously, or even moreso than their day job; people who are willing to give their best for Allah.

The role-holder will need to be a versatile problem-solver with exceptional stakeholder manager, a grounding in Islam’s fundamentals, and the ability to build a team around them, and do whatever it takes to get things done.

 

Key Tasks

  • Project planning – including but not limited to planning activities, budgeting, completing risk assessments, setting deadlines etc.
  • Project delivery – leading on promotion and delivery of the course, working with the marketing team to market the course, meet course registration targets, and ensure course sessions are carried out on time.
  • Project monitoring and evaluation – tracking project progress, resolving any problems that may arise, collecting feedback from participants, and evaluating the course, post completion.
  • Team leadership – managing and coordinating with volunteers as required.

What are we looking for?

  • Grounding in foundational Islamic studies
  • Demonstrated experience in leadership roles
  • Experience in delivering educational courses end-to-end
  • Experience in project management and delivery
  • Desirable – Established connection with Muslim professional networks

What difference will you make?

As the project lead for the online education programme, your input will have immense impact - as you will enable Roots Academy to deliver our popular "Essentials" course to a whole new target audience of professionals - allowing individuals to access online learning that has previously only been available to university students.
