ABOUT THE ROLE

Who we are looking for...

Are you passionate about changing the lives of young people? Do you think the 10,000 hours young people spend in schools should be safe and bully free environments?

If you answered yes to the above, then we want to hear from you!

The Diana Award runs the UK’s leading peer to peer Anti-Bullying Programme in schools. Since 2010 we have trained over 28,000 young people in 3,000 schools to stand up to all forms of bullying, these young Anti-Bullying Ambassadors lead on shaping attitudes and changing behaviours.

Our dedicated training team achieves this by working across the UK with hundreds of young people at training events each week with the aim of empowering young people to reduce and prevent bullying in their schools, communities and online.

This role will support the Anti-Bullying training team, providing strong administrative support enabling the smooth running of training and events.

You will be an important member of the team who works closely with our dedicated trainers to ensure school training events and teams have the correct resources and you will oversee the logistics and organisation of this.

The post holder will also play an important role in helping our aftercare team support schools to continue to tackle bullying after they leave their training. This will include liaising with schools and young people who are engaged in amazing anti-bullying work.

From the moment that you join The Diana Award, you’re part of our family. Everyone has an equal say in how the organisation moves forward as we work towards our shared goal, united by our passion to see young people change the world.

If the above sounds like something that you want to be a part of then submit an application today!
