Gendered Intelligence: Understanding diversity in creative ways

Gendered Intelligence (GI) is a registered not-for-profit Community Interest Company, established in 2008. Our mission is to increase understandings of gender diversity and to improve the lives of trans people. We work predominantly with the trans community and those who impact on trans lives; we particularly specialise in supporting young trans people aged 8-30.

Join the team

Gendered Intelligence consists of a team of skilled trainers, youth workers, mentors, public speakers, consultants, workshop facilitators and community practitioners. We have a working and in-depth knowledge of the wider trans community and of the young trans community in particular.

Gendered Intelligence is a ‘trans-led’ organisation which means many members of the team are trans identified. We feel strongly that there is not one way of being trans, and there are many different ways and approaches to help GI achieve its aims.

We are keen to ensure that collectively the team is diverse in order that we can draw from a wide range of backgrounds, perspectives and styles of thinking and working. As the organisation grows this is more important than ever.

We are looking for a range of skilled people from across England and Wales for the various paid activities listed below. We especially invite those identify as a trans woman/ feminine person, trans people from Black, Asian, South-East Asian, Arabic, Chinese and other non-White backgrounds and people who identify as non-binary to get in touch. We are also specifically looking for people who live in the north of England.

Gendered Intelligence work is divided into five areas of services. These are: Trans Youth Work, Work in Education, Professional Services, Public Events and Special Projects.

Work in Education

Gendered Intelligence provides a range of chargeable services for all educational settings including schools across Key Stages 1-2 and 3-4, Further Education Colleges and Higher Education Institutes as well as other educational programmes such as Pupil Referral Units, schools in hospitals and other settings across England and Wales.

We offer one to one mentoring with young trans people within their educational settings, providing educational workshops and assemblies for students, delivering staff training, consultation and policy development in educational settings.

To grow our Work in Education, we are looking for:

• Mentors

• Workshop facilitators to deliver workshops for students

• Speakers to deliver presentations or lectures for students

Requirements for these roles:

We welcome people with experience of working with young people in the capacity of youth work, teaching, drama practices, or similar that involves group work (for workshops) and one to one work (for mentoring). For the mentoring role, experience of working in the area of mental health and well-being is an advantage.

Professional Services

Gendered Intelligence provides a range of services for all for the commercial, statutory and not-for-profit sectors. We provide a non-judgmental service that supports all settings to develop and improve their trans inclusion and gender diversity good practices.

We offer trans awareness and inclusion training, consultancy work, policy development and a membership scheme.

To grow our Professional Services, we are looking for:

• Trans Awareness and Inclusion Trainers

Requirements for this role:

This role will be to deliver our standard training packages to our clients. This includes working as part of a team, and being guided by our Professional Services Lead. It also means to work independently and reliably and includes activities such as liaising with clients, responding swiftly to enquiries and carrying out evaluation of all sessions.

As part of our commitment to provide high-quality learning opportunities for professionals, we have set an expectation around the facilitation and teaching skills of our trainers. For this reason, we ask that our trainers have, or be working towards, a Level 3 Award in Education and Training qualification or equivalent. Trainers also need to be able to work independently without supervision.

Trans Youth Work

We deliver youth groups, residential, peer support for parents and carers, special projects and other partnership work. In addition to the parents and carers’ group, there are other social, community and learning events as well as an on-line forum group that can be accessed via our website.

To grow our peer support for parents and carers we are looking for:

• Group work facilitators to support our 3 hour monthly parents and carers’ group in the regions of London, Bristol and Leeds

Requirements for this role:

As part of this role we would expect the successful applicant to have a high level of expertise and experience in managing groups and facilitating feelings and discussion. This could be three facilitators to carry out a session in one region or one facilitator to carry out all three sessions each month.

In addition to these roles we are also looking for:

Project and Communications Co-ordinator

This is a full-time post to undertake day-to-day project administration and co-ordination as well as think strategically about the organisation’s outward and inward-facing communications.

This will be a fixed term contract of 35 hours per week. The pay is £26,000 + £3000 London Allowance

Tasks include: acting strategically and operationally regarding public profiling across social media, mainstream media and elsewhere, to deliver outreach and promotion of all events and activities, to act as a first point of call for any queries across all service provision at Gendered Intelligence, responding directly or referring to another member of staff as appropriate, to maintain and develop content on the website.

In addition, the successful applicant will support team members with effective communications and administrative duties that ensure smooth processes, including taking minutes, listing actions and following up on activities within the team meetings and any other meetings deemed necessary and support Gendered Intelligence with their events programming and fundraising through the volunteers’ scheme.
