Youth Intervention Practitioner – Birmingham

Salary: c.£23,700

Location: Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham

Contract: Permanent

Closing Date: 10am, Tuesday 13th April

This role is part of our Youth Violence Intervention Programme (YVIP) in Birmingham and will work across three hospital sites – Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QE), Birmingham Children’s Hospital (BCH) and Heartlands Hospital (HH). The role will be based at QE and will visit and take referrals from the other sites on a regular basis.

As a Youth Intervention Practitioner based in the A&E departments you will support young people who are experiencing trauma or tragedy and their families. You’ll be part of a team that is fully embedded in the hospital and that is highly valued by clinicians and community partners alike.

To do this well you need to be a people person; passionate about supporting young people, and excited at the prospect of working in a fast-paced and exceptionally busy environment. You’ll need a proven ability to work with high risk, vulnerable young people and an understanding of the impact intense, short term work can have.

You must be a strong communicator: as comfortable building a relationship with a young person as you are liaising with our clinical colleagues. You’ll be keen to keep learning, seizing training opportunities at Redthread and continuously reflecting upon and improving your practice.

During the Covid-19 outbreak, our teams are still working from the hospitals as we are classed as essential workers. You will need to do shifts at the hospital, as well as working some days from home, depending on the needs of the team and the service.

For full details on the role please see the job pack on our website.

Closing date: 10am, Tuesday 13th April

First round online interview: Wednesday 21st April

Please note: If we receive a high number of applications, we reserve the right to close the advert before the closing date. Therefore, early applications are encouraged.
