We are recruiting!

We are delighted to announce that we are recruiting new roles to join The Kite Trust team – expanding our services and support for LGBTQ+ young people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Please also see our volunteering page for more information about volunteer roles with The Kite Trust.


Youth Worker (18.5 hpw/Part Time)

Closing date EXTENDED: Tuesday 13th April, 9am

Salary: £22,894 (pro-rata = £11,295)

This new role has been made possible due to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, and will support the further embedding of an anti-racist approach across all of The Kite Trust’s activities, as well as co-creating new approaches to ensure the organisation is enabling equity of opportunities for LGBTQ+ young people who are Black, Asian or mixed ethnicities.

What these new approaches look like is to developed by the person appointed to this role working in partnership with young people and other community groups – it could be a new regular group, an additional residential, other one-off activities and workshops, partnerships with other local or national organisations, or something entirely different. The ability to facilitate young people’s ideas, and to provide support to realise them, will be crucial to this role.

This role will also support the delivery of The Kite Trust youth work services which cover Cambridgeshire and Peterborough between the team of appointed youth workers. This includes facilitating safe spaces for groups, providing individual support to LGBTQ+ young people and occasional schools and training delivery.

In light of the nature of this position, The Kite Trust considers the candidate’s race to be a Genuine Occupational Requirement in accordance with Para 1, Schedule 9, of the Equality Act 2010. Therefore, we are only requesting applications from people who are (or identify as) Black, Asian, or minority ethnic, including mixed race/ mixed heritage.

Associate Trainer (rolling recruitment) 

Join our pool of Associate Trainers and help us to deliver our Schools and Training Programme across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and surrounding areas. If you have previous experience of delivering training and knowledge of LGBTQ+ identities, apply today! 

We aim to respond and advise whether we will be taking your application to the next stage within four weeks, however this may be delayed by periods of service closure at certain times of the year. The application process will also include: an interview, two references from those who have seen you train previously, and a DBS check.  

If successful you will join our pool of Associate Trainers and be invited to deliver training on our behalf dependent on availability, geographical location and any specialisms. The Kite Trust cannot guarantee any number of hours being offered to Associate Trainers as availability of shifts is dependent on client demand.  

The majority of training delivered in-person by The Kite Trust is in Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and surrounding areas, therefore Associate Trainers looking to deliver in-person should also reside within or close to this area. However, some training is delivered remotely using online platforms and therefore applications from prospective trainers further afield will also be accepted. If this is the case, please focus your application on your experience of delivering training over online platforms.
