The role will be based in the Grampian region.

  • Hours will be flexible and paid on an hourly sessional basis and will be flexible around availability;
  • Work will be offered across London on an ad hoc basis, arranged with notice, and between 2-8 hours per week on average, although this cannot be guaranteed;
  • Core delivery area is Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray.

The Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation is a drug and alcohol education charity, founded by Fiona and Tim Spargo-Mabbs in 2014 in response to the death of their 16-year-old son Dan having taken ecstasy. The charity aims to support young people to make safe choices and reduce harm, through increasing their understanding of the effects and risks of drugs and alcohol and improving their life skills and resilience. The Foundation works with young people, parents, teachers, and professionals, in schools, colleges and communities across the UK. For more information about the charity see www.dsmfoundation.org.uk
