Job Term: Annual

Appointment Type: Part time

Salary: NJC £13.00 per hour

Hours per week: 3-9 (Evenings)

Place of Work: The Rings Community Hub

Ingleby Barwick Town Council are looking for an experienced youth leader to lead a new youth project in Ingleby Barwick. A community facility is now complete and the Town Council are looking to appoint a visionary and enthusiastic individual who can build and maintain a ‘drop in’ group for 12-16 years old young people in the purpose-built upper floor of the building. The group will begin at one evening a week for 3 hours, but it is the council’s aim to make this group as popular as possible and to run it for a minimum of 3 evenings a week.

As the leader of the youth group, the successful candidate will have full responsibility for growing and maintaining the group to ensure as many young people use the facility as possible. The facility is designed to attract young people and reduce antisocial behavior in the area, so having many young people using the facility is the top priority. As the youth leader you will therefore need to have a keen ability to build rapport with young people from a variety of backgrounds. You will also need to be visionary and forward thinking in planning the best way to encourage young people to consistently use the facility. Furthermore, you must be adaptable and able to change working plans to best suit the needs of the young residents of our community. You must be able to work calmly under pressure and to handle difficult situations should they arise. It is likely also that you will need skills in motivating and inspiring young people to help make this facility the very best that it can be. You will be required to show empathy, listen, build trust and encourage the young people who attend the facility. You will also need excellent leadership and teamwork skills to manage the youth support assistants and any volunteers who are assisting with the facility.

Experience working with children and young people in a youth worker capacity is essential. The successful candidate will also preferably hold relevant qualifications, for example in youth work practice, or be a qualified youth worker in accordance with the guidelines set out by the National Youth Agency. In the absence of such qualifications the candidate will need to acquire them within a given time frame.

Expressions of interest are invited, from organisations or individuals who believe they could meet the requirements outlined above, to: town.clerk@inglebybarwicktowncouncil.org.uk

On receipt of an expression of interest, an Application Form will be sent to you. This should be returned, together with a covering letter explaining why you think you are right for the role, and how you would approach the first six months in post.

Application closing date: 15th November 2019.
