Part-time Sessional Worker – Middlesbrough
£10 per hour
Youth Focus North East is developing its youth work provision and have vacancies for Sessional Youth Workers, to add to our team working in Middlesbrough. We are looking for youth support workers to support and deliver open access youth provision. We welcome applications for any combination of days listed below.
Tuesday 4 hours (evening)
Young Boro Champions is a group of young people from East Middlesbrough who will explore the challenges of their community, find their own solutions and make lasting change as the community comes out of Covid restrictions.
Friday 4 hours (evening)
Our Co-op spaces programme focuses on making local community spaces nicer so that they can be used by the local community more than what they currently are. In this role you will be working with young people to plan, design and deliver a project that will benefit not only themselves but their peers and the wider community.
Both programmes will enable young people to explore ideas and the challenges facing their community, raise their aspirations, be supported to be decision makers, manage a budget and encourage more young people to be involved.
Applicants will be required to hold either a relevant qualification or demonstrate a wide range youth work of experience.
As an experienced proactive practitioner, particularly in the delivery/support of open access youth provision your communication skills, energy, and professional approach should enable you to quickly establish positive rapport with young people and stakeholders. Confident in the delivery of youth work, you will be committed to improving young people’s lives, and working with them to address their concerns and needs.
We are looking for the right people who can engage with young people, develop positive relationships with external partners, and have the ability to recognise and act on new opportunities when they arise.
