The Henderson Trust is an established charity and social enterprise supporting communities in the West of Norwich. We are currently looking to recruit a Youth Support Worker to offer support and guidance to the young people who are involved in our 3 main youth projects; Sorted, Reach and Not About the Bike.

The role will involve supporting young people, encouraging their participation in activities and developing a youth drop in. The primary target group is young people who may be hard to reach or be at risk of offending or exploitation although you will be working with a wide range of young people as part of the role.

It is anticipated that applicants will be able to demonstrate very recent experience of working with marginalised and/or vulnerable young people but full training and the opportunity to gain relevant qualifications within the sector will be available to the successful applicant.
