This is an exciting chance for someone who is engaging and great with young people to support our work in schools across Sandwell.  We run a range of education and awareness-raising work which aims to inform, empower, and build resilience around issues of domestic abuse, sexual violence, consent, healthy relationships, forced marriage, honour based violence, exploitation, and more. We work sensitively and in an age-appropriate way in settings from Primary schools to Secondary schools, Pupil Referral Units and Colleges.

You will ideally have some experience of working with young people and delivering group work, and you definitely need an engaging, friendly yet sensitive manner. You don't necessarily need experience of working with the issues of domestic violence and other abuse, as we will support and train you, and you will be working with our experenced Young People's Advocates.

We hope to find a candidate who drives and has business insurance.
