Part Time Youth Worker

Organisation: Hethersett Youth Club

We currently have a growing and lively group of young people attending the weekly year 5/6 group but due to our current Lead Youth Worker leaving we need a new enthusiastic leader to work with our young people and volunteers. We have an assistant working with that group due mainly to their age.

We would like to see the club grow particularly in the Year 7-9 group (which wasn’t running before Lockdown)  but also a little more growth in the 5/6 group which requires the leader going into local schools and promoting the club and for the young people to take an active part in their club development and its promotion.

The sessions run on Wednesday evenings in school term time:

  • Junior Group (Years 5/6: ages 9-11) 5:45pm – 7.30pm
  • Senior Group (Years 7- 9: ages 11-14) 7:30pm – 9.15pm (currently not happening)

You will also have paid planning and preparation time (currently £12-£14 an hour), along with support from the assistant, Trustees and volunteers .

Have you:

  • got experience of working with young people? (Preferably as a youth worker)
  • excellent communication skills
  • the ability to plan a programme of activities to meet the needs of young people in a growing community?
  • The ability to promote the club in schools?

Then we need you!

You must be prepared to undertake appropriate training if level 2 not already held.
