Women’s Programme Outreach Officers

London, East Midlands, Scotland and Nationwide
(Roles may be based at home, within GamCare services, or our partner network services)

Full time, fixed term position until 31st March 2021.
This role could be based at GamCare’s headquarters in London, at one of GamCare’s partner offices or from home, depending on the location and preference of the successful candidate.
Salary: £25-£28K per annum

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.

We are excited to recruit an Outreach Officer for the East Midlands and an additional Outreach Officer from any region in England (North East/North West/Yorkshire and Humber/West Midlands/East Midlands/East England/South East/South West/London).  You will join our new team and collaborate effectively with and be well supported by an enthusiastic and friendly national team. Outreach Officers will create excellent local links and embed themselves within the regional community to ensure there is national coverage for this flagship programme.  All roles are full time.

Candidates will need to demonstrate the ability to build successful relationships with partner organisations, deliver training, coordinate and facilitate networking opportunities and be a passionate advocate for both the programme and the treatment support services delivered by the wider GamCare partner network.  The work will not always be easy, as we will be working with partner organisations that have competing priorities and a constant demand on their time.  Passion, enthusiasm and commitment will help to you to make sure that this important issue is given the attention it deserves.

Successful candidates will be confident, self-motivated communicators, have good attention to detail and enjoy persuading and influencing. Working with a wide range of stakeholders, both internal and external, you will champion the work.

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!

The role is a fixed term post, full time until end March 2021.  We are open to discussion about where the roles will work from in each region; some may be based in GamCare’s partner organisations, some home based.

This post may be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

Women’s Programme Team Leader

England, Scotland or Wales
Full time, fixed term position until 31st March 2021.
This role could be based at GamCare’s headquarters in London, at one of GamCare’s partner offices or from home, depending on the location and preference of the successful candidate.
Salary: £28,000 – £33,000

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 have robust pathways into gambling related treatment.

GamCare has received funding to help change this and is delivering a programme to build a nationwide network of local public sector and third sector organisations that work with women. The programme supports those organisations to enhance knowledge about gambling related harm to women, awareness of where help is available, and the skills to support their service users impacted by gambling related harm.

The programme is delivered by a team of Outreach Officers based throughout all regions of England, Scotland and Wales.  The team is currently led by a Team Leader, highly supported by a Programme Manager and GamCare’s senior team.  As we expand, we are recruiting a second Team Leader to work collaboratively.  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.  You will also role model good practice by delivering training yourself.

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 and other Team Leader, 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!
