ABOUT THE ROLE

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? Do you have experience in working with young people?

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

To date our ‘Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme’ has trained over 35,000 young people in the UK, empowering them to lead real change in their schools and promote a culture which celebrates difference.

We’re looking for another person to join us, as we aim to train thousands more young people across the UK.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is confident in facilitating session for young people and staff on and offline, is able to adapt training to various stakeholders, embraces new opportunities, and who is meticulous in their attention to detail.

You will deliver multiple Training Sessions during the  week, during term-time, primarily to primary schools but on occasion to secondary. The rest of your time will be spent collaborating with your colleagues to develop resources, organising training events and recording the incredible impact you are having so we can share your success stories.

Please note that given the current restrictions in place as a result of Covid, and to help reduce the amount of travel required, we are looking for someone who lives in any of the following regions: Yorkshire and the Humber, North West or North East, and who would be happy to travel extensively in these areas, either by car or public transport, with some overnight stays required depending on the location of the school/s.

When not delivering training, the post holder will be based from their own home, with support from the wider team given remotely and occasional trips to our London office as required.
