We're looking for a new facilitator
Updated: Feb 24
You’ll know if this is you. Your superpower is the development of people. You enjoy the challenge of learning – possibly because you’re a lifelong learner yourself. You believe that everyone can play a role in promoting social justice, and you’re interested in unlocking this part of people and helping them be a better version of themselves.
Most days you will be responsible for co-facilitating learning and development sessions with colleagues. You will be a valued part of the brap team, working with others to propel the organisation forward and position our work so that it is meaningful and has impact.
We are looking for a part-time colleague (between 15-20 hours per week), although a full-time option will be considered. The salary is between £30-34k pro-rata .
WHO ARE WE?
brap is a charity transforming the way we think and do equality. Our aim is to help organisations become more ambitious on this agenda. We support them to try new things by giving them an evidence base of what works – and what might do. After all, we have to take risks sometimes.
brap was established in 1999. We currently engage over 150 organisations every year through our learning, development, and research activities.
We’ve spent the last year getting used to working from home, which has been especially difficult for us as we’re a team that loves collaborating and thrives off discussion and debate. While most of our training is now online, we may start delivering some in-person sessions. While we support flexible working as much as we can, the role may involve some travel if this happens.
We work mostly with adults, but also deliver to young people from around 13 onwards.
WHO YOU ARE
As a Learning and Development Partner you will need to be comfortable with conflict and have an eagle eye for the quiet person who’s just not getting it. We often only get one chance to reach someone, and you’ll be passionate about making that chance count. You won’t be fazed by people who have different views to yours on equality and inclusion, but will use your experience of facilitation to help them see a different perspective.
The successful applicant will have knowledge of how people learn and an understanding of organisational cultures/processes. They will have a passion for equality and inclusion and be willing to learn more about brap’s approach with a view to helping develop curricula and course content. We’re an odd bunch of former teachers, lecturers, and therapists, so the successful candidate will need to be confident working in a team and sharing ideas.
Closing date for applications: Friday 19 March 2021
Interviews will take place on: Monday 29 March 2021
Please note that interviews will be held virtually via Zoom
