We are currently looking for a LGBTQ Engagement Officer to continue our engagement of the LGBTQ community through our successful Health and Inclusion Project (HIP).
This is a varied and interesting role and you should be a confident and dynamic individual with experience and skills in both community development and consultation and research.

The aim of the work is to engage and consult with the LGBTQ community about issues relating to them and working with health and council services to influence and inform future policy and provision. The role provides a bridge between the local LGBTQ community and the Council, NHS and other services and primarily helps to identify and address inequalities with LGBTQ people.
This post is jointly funded by Brighton & Hove City Council (BHCC) and Brighton & Hove Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and is a part time post for 21 hours per week (over three days) until 31st March 2018 in the first instance and then subject to review depending on future funding and a potential extension until 31st March 2019. The post holder will be required to work flexibly, including some work outside office hours, as events sometimes take place in the evenings and at weekends. Time will be given off in lieu for such hours worked.
