The Sexual Health Coordinator – Community Engagement will be responsible for developing and coordinating the delivery of a comprehensive range of sexual health workshops, training sessions, talks and interactive activities. This will include a focus on prevention tools (PrEP, PEP, U=U, condoms and lube and regular testing), pleasure (masturbation, sex toys and intimate touch) and healthy relationships (consent, boundaries and negotiation).

You will play an integral role in the writing and delivery of LGBT Foundation’s Sexual Health community asset mapping strategy. This will include developing activities to support individuals and their communities to determine, mobilise and develop their assets. As part of the strategy you will recruit, train and support community assets across all boroughs of Greater Manchester.

The Sexual Health Coordinator – Community Engagement will line manage the Sexual Health Officer - Diversity & Inclusion and sessional workers to ensure that workshops and information stalls are delivered across all 10 Greater Manchester localities, meeting targets as outlined in PaSH, HIVE and HPE LAP funding agreements.

The Sexual Health Coordinator – Community Engagement will work with Sexual Health Officer - Diversity & Inclusion, Trans Programme Coordinator and Women’s Programme Coordinator to ensure that content is inclusive and reflect of the sexual health and sexual practices of all LGBT people. This includes assisting with national surveys and events such as TransMCR and Sugar & Spice. Furthermore, you will assist with the implementation of initiatives as recommended in LGBT Foundation’s ‘National sexual wellbeing survey: women who have sex with women 2018’.

The Sexual Health Coordinator – Community Engagement will attend local LGBT partnership and sexual health meetings, forming partnerships with local social and support groups, influencers and venues.

Working with the Performance Manager you will utilise Salesforce (CRM system) to capture demographics, sexual history and substance use. You will identify trends, contribute to digital innovation and highlight underrepresented communities. This includes looking at how we can streamline data collection and highlight the value of the knowledge and skills imparted on our service users.

You will work closely with the Communications Coordinator (Marketing & Digital) to develop campaigns that highlight the sexual health and wellbeing needs of LGBT communities. This includes being responsive to localised data and co-production of resources and materials that reflect the intersectionality of LGBT people across Greater Manchester.

We particularly welcome applicants from BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) communities, trans communities and that are older (50+) as staff from these are currently underrepresented in our organisation.

* Trans is an umbrella and inclusive term used to describe people whose gender identity differs in some way from that which they were assigned at birth; including non-binary people, cross dressers and those who partially or incompletely identify with their sex assigned at birth.

We are open to flexible home working if you are in the process of transition and therefore have regular appointments.
