Job description

Diversity Role Models (DRM) is an anti-bullying charity with a vision of a world where everybody embraces diversity and can thrive. DRM's unique approach to embedding inclusion and building empathy is through educational workshops and training in schools featuring volunteer role models.

We have an exciting opportunity for an ambitious, highly driven and organised person to join Diversity Role Models (DRM) at a historical point when we are due to work with more schools and students than any previous year. We are flexible on location but would prefer to see candidates based in the Midlands or the South East of England due to the demand we have from schools in this area. This role will be home based with an opportunity to work from the London office. 

In 2021, Diversity Role Models’ received funding to deliver Embracing Difference, Ending Bullying, an exciting Anti-Bullying programme, to schools in England. DRM is now recruiting an additional Education Officer to support the second year of the project delving a package of interventions to schools.

The project aims to ensure school staff have the knowledge and skills to prevent and tackle bullying in schools, including on the basis of protected characteristics, and create inclusive school cultures. The programme will include staff training, pupil workshops and multimedia teaching resource development.

The Education Officer (Projects) will work as part of the Project Team to deliver the programme and will report into the Programme Manager. This role will be responsible for school recruitment and engagement, relationship management, training and resource development, student and staff training delivery, volunteer recruitment, training and management and monitoring and evaluation. We aim to extend the project into a third and final year if key targets and met and the relationship with the funder is continued into the third year.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience of working with young people and the adults that support them to tackle and prevent bullying. They will have subject matter expertise on anti-bullying interventions and/or diversity and inclusion. They will be confident in delivering staff training in educational settings and managing a busy schedule to ensure delivery targets are met.
