We want to make meaningful, long term and sustainable change to ensure that Mermaids is a charity in which all
trans and gender variant people feel included and seen.
Mermaids is committed to supporting trans and gender diverse PoC to challenge inequality. We are determined to establish an integrated model of care and support for young trans people from PoC communities.
Key Objective of the Role
We are looking for an experienced and motivated Mermaids’ TPoC Youth Engagement Officer who will work closely with PoC children, young people and their families to raise awareness and build creative initiatives to provide support to TPOC communities around the country.
Through active engagement with young people and community leaders, the successful candidate will lead on reviewing and reflecting on Mermaids inclusion status, developing substantive initiatives to move forward and help ensure that the PoC trans inclusion within Mermaids is meaningful, sustainable and long-term. The successful candidate will have a strategic budget to utilise and a team of staff and stakeholders that is ready to listen, understand, do more and do better. The successful candidate will not be working in isolation, or singly tasked with this level of change. It is the joint responsibility of all Mermaids trustees, staff, and volunteers to ensure that the need to change is a strongly held and ongoing priority.
