Interviews: will take place online on 4th November 

We are committed to working towards a more diverse cultural sector. Our recruitment process is open to all, but we are particularly keen to hear from People of the Global Majority and / or disabled candidates, as these groups are currently underrepresented in our teams.

We actively encourage applications from those with lived experience of the Criminal Justice System. However, due to the position having direct contact with our beneficiaries, we are unfortunately unable to employ anyone with an offence that prevents them from working with young people.

As this role will involve contact with young people, a DBS check will be required to ensure suitability. Employment will be subject to two satisfactory employment references (one of which should be from the most recent employer) and confirmation of eligibility to work in UK.

If you would like to arrange an informal call before submitting your application please email jake@irenetaylortrust.com
