Closing: 10:00am, 6th Jun 2022
Thank you for considering a Youth Intervention Practitioner role with Redthread. We are a team of compassionate, collaborative and courageous professionals, committed to empowering young people to change their lives. This animation was created with our Youth Ambassadors and this clip from BBC News will give you a taster of what we do every day
We are looking to recruit dynamic team members across all of our London Hospital sites, listed below. During the application process, you will be asked to list your location preference in order. If successful, this will be discussed with you during the recruitment stages.
As a Youth Intervention Practitioner working on our Youth Violence Intervention Programme, you will primarily be based in the A&E department of a hospital, supporting 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.
In return, the successful candidates will receive a competitive salary, a supportive and flexible working environment, excellent staff training and development package and access to a range of employee benefits including; access to enhanced employee assistance programme services, employer pension scheme contribution, enhanced annual leave and family leave entitlements and more.
