Location: UK-wide

Contract: Permanent

Salary: £310 per one-day workshop and £206 per half-day course

Hours: Varied depending on when Sands requires training to be delivered

Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal charity is a well-respected national charity that:

  • Supports anyone affected by the death of a baby
  • Works in partnership with health professionals to ensure that bereaved parents and families receive the best possible care
  • Promotes and funds research that could help to reduce loss of babies’ lives.

Sands is looking to recruit two Bereavement Care Trainers to join our Improving Bereavement Care (IBC) team in delivering bereavement care training to professionals in the form of one-day workshops and half-day courses throughout the UK.

Each Bereavement Care Trainer single-handedly facilitates and delivers high-quality workshops and presentations to professionals on improving bereavement care for parents who experience pregnancy loss and the death of a baby.  This role exists to help the Improving Bereavement Care Team to fulfil Sands’ aim to improve bereavement care.

You will be an experienced and skilled trainer, able to facilitate and deliver high-quality workshops and presentations to professionals on providing good, sensitive bereavement care for parents who experience pregnancy loss and the death of a baby.

With a professional training qualification, you will be able to demonstrate a high degree of empathy, have excellent communication and facilitation skills, a passion for empowering groups of people to engage in learning and development, and be able to deliver sensitive material to diverse groups of people.

Experience within the charity sector is desirable, but not essential.  You must be comfortable dealing with sensitive and difficult issues around bereavement experienced by parents. A high level of IT skills are also essential.
