About this job
Do you want to play a pivotal role in preventing and reducing youth violence across London? StreetDoctors is looking for a London Co-ordinator to grow our impact in the capital, helping us to reach as many young people at risk of violence as possible.
StreetDoctors teaches lifesaving skills to young people at risk of violence across the UK. We do this through our movement of young healthcare volunteers who teach emergency first aid to 11-25 year olds. Our interactive training sessions are delivered in partnership with criminal justice services, schools, pupil referral units, sports or community groups.
StreetDoctors teach emergency first aid to young people at risk of youth violence, so they know what to do if someone is bleeding or unconscious. We do this through our movement of young healthcare volunteers who train these young people to understand the true medical consequences of violence and empower them to become lifesavers in their communities.
About the role
This is a fantastic new role for anyone looking to make a real impact on youth violence in London. You will support our core delivery team to develop new partnerships across the capital, diving deep to develop an understanding of local communities, to provide StreetDoctors programmes to young people at risk of violence.
You will work closely with our six London volunteer teams to deliver well targeted training sessions throughout the city, guiding and supporting them in their delivery and recruitment of more young anti-violence volunteer trainers. Collaboration and strong relationships with these volunteers will be key factors in the success of this role, and our wider work across London. You will also support the delivery of high quality trauma informed volunteer teaching through the continuous development of our volunteers teaching and facilitation skills.
You will be a driven, flexible and passionate individual with a desire to collaborate across many sectors and communities in order to get our lifesaving programme to as many young people at risk as possible. You will do this through developing partnerships with both statutory providers and grass roots community groups. You will drive our delivery across the capital forward while maintaining a watchful eye on our mission, our volunteers and the needs of the young people we teach.
You will be skilled at managing relationships with a range of external stakeholders. You will also be a strong team player and have experience of research and evaluation to ensure high quality reporting and using evidence to learn from and evolve our work.
You will be aligned with the values of social action. You will be practical and focused, able to work independently and function as a vital part of a small team. You will be reliable and organised with strong interpersonal skills across a range of audiences, and excellent written skills.
StreetDoctors is committed to ensuring that we are a welcoming, inclusive and diverse team which benefits from a broad spectrum of experiences and backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications that help build greater diversity within StreetDoctors and/or bring lived experience of youth violence into our team.
