Working for DMK Potential

DMK Potential has regular opportunities for people to get involved in the work of our charity. With a variety of roles from long-term paid opportunities to short term contracts and volunteering opportunities, there's something for everyone. We want you to be a part of our journey to support young people, by amplifying their voices, empowering them to take action in their communities, and providing them with or signposting them towards the opportunities that can allow them to do this effectively.

We're a flexible organisation which works to ensure that our team are happy and comfortable with their roles in the organisation. All paid roles are paid at least the Real Living Wage and we aim to be upfront and transparent about contract terms and pay rates.

All DMK Potential roles are based on working from home, communicating with team members digitally and meeting in person a few times a year for team days, and opportunities to get to know colleagues.

Equal Opportunities

We especially encourage applications for our roles from those who are from groups which are under-represented in our organisation and the wider youth sector. We’re totally committed to equality of opportunity for all. We welcome applications from individuals regardless of their age, disability, ethnicity, gender, race, religion or sexual orientation.
