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.

Gendered Intelligence work is divided into four areas of services. These are: Trans Youth Work, Work in Education, Professional Services, Public Events. We also deliver a range of Special Projects.

Vacancies


Trainer (0.8 Full Time Equivalent)

We are looking for a new member of the team to carry out the role of trainer at Gendered Intelligence. Gendered Intelligence provides a range of services for all for the commercial, statutory and not-for-profit sectors. We offer trans awareness and inclusion training, consultancy work, policy development and a membership scheme.

The successful applicant will be responsible for the delivery of our professional trans awareness and inclusion training, including associated administration, preparation and follow up tasks. They will work directly with a wide range of people including the Professional Services Lead, colleagues in the Professional Services area, CEO and other staff at Gendered Intelligence.

The work involves national travel, mainly across England and Wales, and very occasionally international travel; accordingly, the role sometimes involves overnight stays. It also involves occasional weekend work.

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.

Simon Croft, Lead for Professional Services at GI says:

'We are looking to diversify our training team and welcome applicants with diverse life experiences. As always, we are particularly keen to receive applications from people who are themselves trans, non-binary, gender fluid or otherwise gender diverse / of gender diverse history, especially trans feminine spectrum people and people of colour. We recognise that people from our community may not always have had the opportunity to develop the work history and experience that others might, and so we strongly encourage people to apply on the basis of experiences and transferrable skills they may have developed in other settings, such as voluntary roles, whether formally or informally. Anyone who would like to talk anything through or ask questions is very welcome to call me for an informal chat."
