Manager Applications 2019

Want to be a part of running a charity which promotes social justice in our community?

EJP is run by 2 Co-Directors and an Executive of 8 Managers. Being a Manager is an incredible opportunity to lead a team made up of intelligent, committed and hardworking volunteers. It is an immensely rewarding experience and is a real lesson in leadership. As well as being able to shape your team’s policy, you’ll be involved in setting the broader goals of EJP in 2019.
