ABM Vacancies

Please see below our current vacancies.

Learning Systems Manager (LSM)

  • Role: Part-time, temporary, self-employed contract
  • Responsible to: Chair and Trustees
  • Fee: Negotiable, commensurate on experience

Context: The Association of Breastfeeding Mothers (ABM) is a voluntary organisation founded in 1979 by mothers already experienced in breastfeeding counselling. We became a charity in 1980 (registered no. 280537). As well as supporting mums and families and offering training, we speak for breastfeeding families at a national advocacy level.

We run a number of training modules for lay persons and healthcare professionals around breastfeeding and infant care. The online platform currently hosting our Mother Supporter and Foundation modules is being retired.

This will be a freelance, fixed-term contract until the end of 2020, and we will only consider applications from individuals and agencies with the relevant skills and experience. The fee is negotiable depending on that experience. Our current online module takes around 12 weeks part-time study to complete, with a variety of learning/moderating methods including video instruction, multiple choice and prose, so experience with this sort of scale of project is essential.
