We are seeking Workshop Facilitators to facilitate our award winning knife crime prevention workshops.

Our workshops educate young people (school years 5-10) about the dangers of knife crime and how to make positive choices to stay safe.

We are looking for enthusiastic and committed individuals to deliver our workshops who can work flexibly, sometimes at short notice and are available during school hours.

Our workshops educate young people about the dangers of knife crime and help them to make positive choices to stay safe. You will ensure our workshops are impactful and memorable and that young people are supported to live their lives safely. You will work both independently and through co-delivery, directly with young people in a face-to-face role.

Salary and Contract: £45 per workshop, £80 for a double workshop | This is a freelance position

Location: You can choose to work in our Islington exhibition, our Barking and Dagenham exhibition or (preferably!) both.

Closing date for applications: This round of recruitment is rolling. We will interview suitable candidates as their applications are received, on a first come first served basis.

Company

The Ben Kinsella Trust is one of the leading anti-knife crime charities in the UK, set up following the tragic murder of Ben Kinsella in 2008. The Trust exists to campaign against knife crime and to educate young people about its dangers, helping them to make positive choices to stay safe.

The Ben Kinsella Exhibition

We have purpose-built exhibitions from where we deliver our choices and consequences workshops. These exhibitions are in Islington and Nottingham and we are currently building a new exhibition in Barking & Dagenham. Every year the Ben Kinsella Trust works with over 3,000 children and young people, aged from 10-16 years old. The rooms which make up the exhibition give young people a unique and immersive experience, allowing them to see how choices and consequences are intrinsically linked.

Our workshops change young people’s attitudes to knife crime; debunking the myth that carrying a knife will protect you. They strengthen peer values; ensuring young people give better advice to each other and challenge peers who are carrying, or thinking of carrying, a knife.

Through our website we also provide a wealth of free resources for schools, young people and parents.

Our current position

We have established ourselves as one of the leading anti-knife crime charities in the UK. Our work is well recognised and respected, and we frequently attract national attention. We use our position to campaign strongly: speaking out against factors contributing to increasing knife crime.

Over 16,000 young people have been through our Choices and Consequences exhibition, learning about Ben’s life and understanding knife crime from the point of view of both the victim and the offender. As our charity rapidly grows, we anticipate more and more young people will learn from Ben’s life and Ben’s legacy.

Our online learning resources are used by schools, police forces and youth groups across the country.  We estimate that over 10,000 people used these resources in the last year.

We are a small charity and feel very proud of our achievements.  The organisation currently has 3 full time employees in the CEO, Operations Manager and Trust Coordinator.  They are supported by our team of freelance workshop facilitators and actors who deliver our educational projects.  The successful applicant will thrive on collaborating in a small team, working independently, and using their own initiative.
