This role offers the chance to work as part of an exciting and varied initiative in Waltham Forest that works with children and adults to foster resilience to radicalisation.

The post-holder will lead the team’s work in the education sector, deliver training to internal and external partners, and assist in managing the Digital Resilience project materials which are being developed locally under the Government’s Prevent strategy.

General duties will involve day to day training delivery, pro-active engagement with partners, contract management and completion of performance reports as required.

This is a 6 month temporary role with the likelihood of extension, dependent on likely future funds being awarded. Further detail of the role itself is outlined in the Job Description as attached.

The date of interview for this post is Friday 1st February 2019
