There is a perception that problem gambling is only a ‘male issue’.

The successful candidate will be a confident, self-motivated communicator, have good attention to detail and enjoy taking responsibility for processes. You will need to have line management experience and be able to support people working remotely. Working with a wide range of stakeholders, both internal and external, you will champion the work.

Key Responsibilities include:

  • Establish and coordinate the activities and processes of the GamCare Vulnerable Women and Problem Gambling programme
  • Develop and disseminate resources and training which aid learning about gambling related harm and its impact on women and vulnerable groups of women. This will include ‘training the trainer’ and provide ongoing support of those routinely delivering training
  • Lead processes for maintaining a national network of stakeholder organisations regarding vulnerable women and problem gambling and supporting local officers in setting up and running network events
  • Coordinate all and directly line manage some of the regional Project Officers
  • Lead on the coordination of processes to collect and manage data, including putting in place consistent systems to manage referral pathways across the regions
  • Contribute to formal documentation, maintain accurate records and provide statistical information required to assist delivery and evaluation
  • Be a point of contact and expertise for people interested in GamCare’s Vulnerable Women and Problem Gambling Programme

You will form part of a Development team committed to the minimisation of gambling related harm, gathering evidence in the field and delivering meaningful support and advice to those who most need it.

The role is a fixed term post, full time until end March 2021 and is based in London. The role will require a DBS check.
