Youth Mentor

Serious Youth Violence Team

(North Kent & Medway)

Youth Mentor

Full-time or part-time considered - Includes evening and weekend work

At Salus, we are very proud of the multi-skilled team of experienced, talented, and motivated practitioners who drive our innovative new Serious Youth Violence Service.

Salus has a long history of delivering ‘cutting edge’ services to children and young people who need our support the most. Youth violence has devastating consequences for individuals, families, communities, and society at large. We believe that children and young people involved in gangs, youth violence or any form of exploitation, are first and foremost, vulnerable and in need of support and protection.

Through funding obtained by Kent County Council, in collaboration with Kent Police and Medway Council, the new service will work creatively, using evidence of what works, to support children, young people, their families and communities to both prevent and tackle serious youth violence. We want to ensure young people are supported to build their resilience and move away from violence and harm.   

Quite simply, we are looking for a Mentor with the life experience and/or professional experience that means that they know what it takes to achieve the best. We are driven to make a real difference in the lives of children and young people and relentless in our pursuit of excellence in all services for them.

We are looking for team members who are committed, motivated and passionate and have both the experience and flair needed to really make a difference. If you have got what it takes to help us achieve our mission, we would really be interested to hear from you.

All roles are fixed term until August 2022. Extension subject to continued funding.
