Location: London (Remote Working)
Closing Date: 17th Sep 2021

Employment Type: Employed

Do you want to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of LGBTQ+ young people?

Founded in London in 1989, Stonewall now works in each nation of the UK and has established partnerships across the globe. We help create transformative change in the lives of LGBTQ+ people through our campaigns, research and change and empowerment programmes. We continue to fight for a world where LGBTQ+ people everywhere can live their lives to the full.

As a charity we rely on the generosity of private individuals, communities and organisations. Without it, none of what we do would be possible. The Shut Out report (2020), showed that LGBTQ+ young people not in education, training, or work face specific challenges in addition to wider factors. These included anti-LGBT bullying and non-inclusive school and college environments, discrimination at university, work or apprenticeships and significant barriers to re-entry. Join us as our Youth Engagement Officer and the development of a new project for LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-24 to resolve this.

Reporting to the Digital Project Manager, you’ll focus on establishing a panel of representative LGBTQ+ young people not in education, training, or work, with the aim of co-producing a website for that highlights opportunities in these fields. You will be involved in all aspects of setting up and developing the panel, ensuring their perspectives are centred, and supporting the project as a whole. As the Youth Engagement Officer, you will be responsible for working with young people with intersecting identities and ensuring engagement is accessible for young people who are disabled or have additional needs.

This role provides an excellent opportunity to develop your skillset and step up as an ally and role model. It’s a varied role in a dynamic environment so you’ll need to be fully up to speed with the principles of working with young people, supporting a project and meeting tight deadlines.
