Senior Youth Worker

Job Title: Senior Youth Worker
Location: Watford
Salary Range: £32,456 - £35,277 pa
Hours: 37 per week
Contract: Permanent

The priority for YC Hertfordshire, Hertfordshire County Council’s youth service, is targeted prevention and early intervention to ensure that young people get the help they need early and to reduce the necessity for higher cost specialist intervention. 

It enables young people to succeed by providing high quality informal education opportunities to promote their personal and social development.  It supports young people who are challenged in education, their communities or home life to ensure a successful transition to adulthood.

You will be part of a team delivering across Watford to meet Service priorities. The focus of your work will be with vulnerable and at-risk groups to deliver preventative programmes, evidencing learning outcomes and delivering to targets and contracts.

You will deliver projects and establish new initiatives which develop, with young people, stimulating and challenging youth work programmes.  You will work in group settings and deliver one-to-one to identified individuals.

You will have the ability to quickly establish positive relationships with diverse groups of young people and partners, to respond flexibly to their needs and to the priorities of the Service.  You will need to be a good communicator and advocate of young people.

You will deliver face to face work in accordance with JNC terms and conditions including residentials.  You will be required to travel across the county so access to a vehicle is essential.
