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.  It supports young people who are challenged in education, their communities or home life to ensure a successful transition to adulthood.

You will be part of a team delivering across Dacorum, to meet Service priorities. The focus of your work will be with vulnerable groups; in targeted localities of need; the delivery of preventative programmes, evidencing learning outcomes and delivering to targets.

You will be supported to establish new initiatives and develop, with young people, stimulating and challenging youth work programmes.  You will work in group settings and deliver one-to-one support to identified individuals.

You will have the ability to quickly establish positive relationships with diverse groups of young people and partners, to respond flexibly to their needs and to the changing priorities of the Service.  You will need to be a good communicator and advocate of young people.

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.

Applications are welcome from qualified and unqualified candidates.  Unqualified applicants will be required and funded to complete a nationally recognised JNC qualification for which you will be allocated regular study time.
