£27,375 - £29,375 per year
Permanent, Full-time
Job description

We are looking for two full-time, engaging trainers to join our team to deliver our new Mindful Resilience programme which is being piloted in Greater London.

This new programme will specifically target professionals or volunteers who work in young people’s mental health services with the aim to increase their skills, knowledge and confidence when dealing with clients who may be experiencing gambling or gaming related harms. As a trainer you will be responsible for stakeholder engagement and raising awareness of this programme to prospective partners from the NHS, Third Sector, Local Authority, and academic institutions. Once engaged, you will then deliver funded accredited training to the professionals or volunteers within these organisations so they have the confidence to support and signpost clients who may need specialist support or counselling.

We are seeking trainers with an engaging manner and who have the confidence to deliver highly impactful face-to-face training. Due to Covid-19 much of our training has moved online, so you will be supported to deliver that, but we hope to return to face-to-face training next year. In addition, YGAM will offer ongoing learning opportunities for you to develop your knowledge around gaming and gambling-harms as in many cases this will be a ‘new’ topic you would be introducing to your professional peer group.

These posts are full time with a starting salary of £27,375 per annum (plus a London Weighting allowance of £3,200 if applicable), with the potential to rise based on performance.

To apply please email a copy of your CV and a supporting statement of no more than two pages, outlining how you meet the Person Specification for the role. Please note that only applications with a supporting statement will be considered. The closing date for completed applications is noon on 9 December 2020.

Successful applicants who make the shortlist will be asked to attend an interview, which is planned to take place on Friday, 11 December. Please make sure you can attend this selection day before applying. YGAM are proud to be recognised as an Investors in People organisation, guaranteeing you a purposeful job with plenty of training and career opportunities.

Good luck with your application and thank you so much for your interest in our work. If you would like to arrange an informal conversation about this post please see the application pack for contact details.
