Are you an experienced, JNC qualified, youth worker looking for an exciting new opportunity?

As the Senior Youth Worker you will be part of a team delivering high quality informal education projects and programmes, across an area, to meet Service priorities and achieve learning outcomes and targets.

You will establish new initiatives and develop, with young people, stimulating and challenging youth work programmes.

You will have a track record of quickly establishing positive relationships with diverse groups of young people and partners, the ability to respond flexibly to their needs and to the changing priorities of the Service. You will be an excellent communicator and advocate of young people.

The focus of your work will be with vulnerable groups; in targeted localities of need; the marketing and delivery of preventative programmes; and ensuring contracts are delivered to targets.

You will be required to deliver face to face work in accordance with JNC terms and conditions including residentials. You will be required to travel across the county so access to a vehicle is essential.

YC Hertfordshire youth work is about prevention and early intervention, to ensure that young people get the help they need early and to reduce the need for higher cost specialist intervention. It enables young people to succeed by providing high quality informal education opportunities to promote their personal and social development. Its work enables young people to make informed decisions, have a place in their community and, ultimately, to reach their potential and make a successful transition to adulthood.
