About the job

We are looking to employ a motivated facilitator to lead the delivery of a gambling harm prevention programme aimed at 14-24 year olds living in diverse communities in Greater London and the Home Counties.

The programme content centres on an understanding of socio-cultural and religious contexts on shame and stigma relating to gambling harms. To achieve our prevention aims, the program involves the channelling of lived experience and other insight into workshops that equip young people with the knowledge to recognise and prevent gambling harm and the confidence to support themselves and others through recovery.

The postholder will work with young people organisations in Greater London and the Home Counties, with at least some of the delivery being expected to be done remotely as work from home. Transport costs for project delivery will be covered by TalkGEN.

This role will suit someone that is interested in working with young people from diverse communities, tackling gambling-harm, addressing neglected health inequalities, and/or public-health work.

Salary and benefits: £24, 000 - £27, 000 FT with 28 days paid annual leave

Requirements

  • To be successful in this role, the placeholder will need to be effective in working with young people of the ages 14 to 24 years old.

  • The candidate will need to be able to demonstrate strong communication and interpersonal skills, and skills in IT and social media.

  • They should have a developed awareness or understanding of gambling harms.

  • They would particularly benefit from having experience of working with young people living in diverse communities

  • The project is primarily in the Greater London area, and so candidates should be based in these areas during this project
