LGBT Foundation are looking for a Trans Programme Coordinator to support delivery of our Trans Programme!
Our Trans Programme has been supporting trans and non-binary people across Greater Manchester since 2015. We have supported thousands of trans and non-binary people through our services and events, and delivered training to hundreds of organisations on how to make services better for our communities. Our work has been developed through a comprehensive consultation with trans and non-binary communities in Greater Manchester, and we are extremely proud to be a part of the local and national work that continues to highlight the needs of our communities and fight transphobia in all walks of life. We are recruiting for a Trans Programme Policy Coordinator to have the following responsibilities:
- Engage with trans and non-binary communities to discuss their concerns and needs, and support LGBT Foundation to highlight them.
- Support policy developments within and outside of LGBT Foundation that impact trans and non-binary people.
- Support the Volunteer Co-ordinator with volunteer enquiries relating to the project, including collation of application forms, references and DBS checks (where applicable); and organising logistics for interviews, volunteer events, supervisions, expenses etc.
- Develop and oversee the social media and communications output from the Trans Programme team, including planning the strategic direction and overseeing the Trans Programme Officer, sessional workers, and volunteers in delivering on output.
We are taking positive action to encourage applications from people of colour (PoC) and other racially minoritised communities, trans, non-binary and/or older people (aged 50+), to improve the representation of colleagues from these communities in our staff team.
Additionally, as the role focusses on engagement with trans and non-binary communities, we believe lived experience of having one or more of these identities will be valuable to the role.
