Successful candidates will be expected to complete the part time mediation training course learning in their own time before taking on a role as an accredited sessional mediator with FML.
The training requires a minimum of 250 hours input. The course begins in July 2018.
Mediators will agree hours of work with FML to meet local demand for mediation and their own availability.
The post is subject to membership of the Protection of Voluntary Groups scheme in relation to regulated work with children
