The job

About you

You will have experience of working with children and young people (either paid or voluntary) in relevant settings, delivering and managing youth events and activities and planning and facilitating group programmes. You will be compassionate and able to relate to young people in a positive way, including those with challenging behaviour and/or additional needs, and have the patience and confidence needed to do so.
