West Kent is a high performing housing association providing excellent homes and services across Kent. We have been accredited with the Customer Service Excellence award and are a Gold IiP Employer. West Kent Communities run projects and activities to support the communities where we have homes. We create strong neighbourhoods by listening to local people and delivering activities that make a difference to our communities.
West Kent has been commissioned by KCC to deliver youth services across the Sevenoaks district for the next five years. To help deliver this project we are looking for someone who is dynamic, experienced and enthusiastic to run two youth work evening sessions in the parishes of New Ash Green and West Kingsdown.
This exciting opportunity will include developing and delivering a rolling programme of youth work provision. You will work directly with young people in the design and evaluation of these projects, support and supervise the other youth workers and volunteers, and keep good quality records.
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.
