‘Starting Journeys, Inspiring Lives’

Youth Moves, a nationally recognised youth work charity working with young people aged 8-19 years old across South Bristol, is looking to recruit new Youth Workers to enhance and develop our offer to young people.

Having secured additional funding through until the end of March 2020 we are looking to build our staff team and help achieve our vision of inspiring the lives of young people through outstanding youth work.

Youth Moves has been running since 2005, based at The Park Centre in Knowle West, but deliver services across South Bristol. We run a range of youth work across the area inlcuding open access youth club provision, mentoring, youth voice and participation, extra curricular and education support packages, positive activity programmes, youth social action and volunteering schemes and the Duke  of Edinburgh awards.

We are looking for enthusiastic and passionate staff who are committed to the impact that youth work can play in making a difference to the lives of young people, putting young people in the lead to develop and shape these services, and building the evidence base for great youth work.

We believe in partnership working and that by working together we can deliver the very best services for young people. For example the posts we are recruiting for currently will be expected to:

  • Work with one of our local secondary education providers, Merchants Academy, to initially set up and develop extra curricular and holiday programmes on their site – but to also explore any other opportunities to work together.
  • Support a local youth work provider, Street Space, to develop their youth provision in the Knowle West area
  • Run one of our Youth Club nights, supported by our Senior Youth Worker, linking in to citywide projects (music, sports etc) working with other youth work providers from across Bristol

We are looking now for the best people to come and join us on our journey so please do complete the application form or give us a call on 0117 903 9796 to find out more
