The Family Mediation Trust is looking to expand our team of accredited mediators.
Following a year which has seen significant growth, the Trust is looking to increase its mediation team with up to three part-time mediators.
The Trust has set out to provide high quality mediation in an accessible way to those that need this support. While current delivery is happening online, our future approach will see a mix of online and face-to-face meetings. Our mediation work is delivered across the East of England. While it would be ideal to have candidates who can work at times in the region to provide face-to-face meetings, we are also open to candidates who can deliver online only.
The successful candidates will be joining a collegiate group of highly experienced mediators, and will be supported with wrap around PPC support and access to training.
The Trust has also expanded its work to include CPD training, and is in the process of creating new services and products for separated parents.
The Trust is seeking family mediators who have full FMC Accreditation in Family Mediation.
Ideally, we are looking for mediators who can join the Service as an employed member of our team; in this way they will benefit from holiday and sick pay. The successful candidates will also have access to PPC support and access to CPD training.
We appreciate that a lot of the mediation sector works under self-employed contracts; for the correct candidate we would be happy to explore these arrangements.
As an accredited mediator, you will be responsible for the delivery of MIAMs and mediation sessions for your clients. You will be supported by our experienced team of administrators who, collectively, have worked for mediation providers for over 60 years. Each of the mediation team has a designated enquiry officer who will work with them on the management of their clients.
The Trust is a legal aid provider and, as such, mediators will be expected to undertake legal aid assessments. If you have not undertaken this element of the work in recent years, the Trust will train and support you in this aspect of the work.
