Contract, Full-time
Job description


Women’s Programme Training and Engagement Lead x3

East Midlands, North West, London and South East

There are options for the roles to be based at home, within GamCare services, or our partner network services. This will be discussed with the recruiting managers and successful candidate.

Full time at 35hrs

Salary: £25,000-28,000 per annum, dependent on experience

Fixed Term up until 31 March 2023


There is a perception that problem gambling is only a male issue.  This is not true – gambling-related harms affect women too, and the impact can be particularly severe for some of the most vulnerable in our society.  Despite this, women are underrepresented in treatment services and there are few organisations that specialise in supporting women that have robust pathways into gambling-related treatment.

GamCare’s Women’s Programme is the UK’s first programme designed specifically to address the issue of women and gambling. We network with local public sector and third sector organisations that work with women in order to enhance their knowledge about gambling-related harms and where help is available, and to give them skills to support their service users.

We are excited to recruit Training and Engagement leads across North West, West Midlands, and London and South East. You will join our team and collaborate effectively with and be well supported by an enthusiastic and friendly national team. Training and Engagement Leads create excellent local links to embed this flagship programme in regions across the country. 

Candidates will need to demonstrate the ability to build successful relationships with partner organisations, deliver training, coordinate and facilitate networking opportunities and be a passionate advocate for both the programme and the treatment support services delivered by GamCare.  The work will not always be easy, as we will be working with partner organisations that have competing priorities and a constant demand on their time.  Passion, enthusiasm and commitment will help to you to make sure that this important issue is given the attention it deserves.


Successful candidates will be confident, self-motivated communicators, have good attention to detail and enjoy persuading and influencing. Working with a wide range of stakeholders, both internal and external, you will champion the work. 


If you are committed to seeing better support for vulnerable women and girls and think you would love to be a part of an innovative and dynamic initiative, then we would love to hear from you!


The role is a fixed term post, full time until end March 2023.  We are open to discussion about where the roles will work from in each region; some may be based in GamCare’s partner organisations, some home based.
