Work for GamCare
Current jobs available if you would like to work for GamCare:
Women’s Programme Team Leader (London)
Fixed term contract until March 2021
£28,000 – £33,000
GamCare is the leading national provider of information, advice and support for anyone affected by problem gambling.
There is a perception that problem gambling is only a ‘male issue’. This is not true – ‘gambling related harm’ affects women too, and the impact can be particularly severe for some of the most vulnerable women in our society. Despite this, women do not come forward for treatment and there are few organisations that specialise in supporting women that have robust pathways into gambling related treatment.
GamCare has received funding from the Tampon Tax Fund specifically to help change this and is setting up the UK’s first ever programme designed specifically to address the issue of women and gambling. We will build a nationwide network of local public sector and third sector organisations that work with women and enhance their knowledge about gambling related harm and where help is available and give them skills to support their service users impacted by gambling related harm.
The Programme will be delivered by a team of 11 Outreach Officers based in throughout all regions of England, Scotland and Wales. Are you the person to be able to lead, motivate and inspire this team?
The Team Leader role will be critical to the success of this national flagship programme, making sure that all remote-working Outreach Officers feel well supported, and ensuring that all learning is spread across everyone who works with vulnerable women and girls, and fed back into the national picture.
You will be responsible for ensuring cohesion, consistency and collaboration across the different workstreams and will support the team by developing and coordinating service user engagement structures, training systems and learning resources. You will lead on data and evaluation processes for the Programme, being responsible for making sure that local work is effective and delivering against its targets and objectives.
Passion, enthusiasm and commitment for the work will help to you to make sure that this important issue is given the attention it deserves. Working closely with the Programme Manager, you will also need to champion this important work internally and externally.
The successful candidate will need to be able to be an effective and supportive line manager, have good attention to detail and enjoy taking responsibility for processes.
If you are committed to seeing better support for vulnerable women and girls and think you would love to be a part of an innovative and dynamic initiative, then we would love to hear from you!
