Do you care about Young People?

Do you want to make a difference to your community?

Do you have a few hours a week to spare and want some extra income?

We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic people who enjoy working with young people and have the ability to;

  •  Develop positive professional working relationships
  •  Enable young people to engage in positive relationships and activities.
  •  Understand the issues facing young people in today’s society
  •  Assist young people to make informed choices about their lives.

Posts are available in both the Youth Service and the Youth Justice Service. The Youth Service provides opportunities for young people to engage in positive activities, outside of the school day, that encourage personal and social development. Youth Justice Service youth workers will build meaningful relationships with young people that encourage personal and social development.

These posts will involve working at times and places where young people are and applicants should recognise that this will mean working regular evenings and/or weekends.

You will be able to access free nationally accredited professional training.
