This role offers the chance to work as part of an exciting and varied initiative in Waltham Forest that works with children and adults to foster resilience to radicalisation.
The post-holder will lead the team’s work in the education sector, deliver training to internal and external partners, and assist in managing the Digital Resilience project materials which are being developed locally under the Government’s Prevent strategy.
