Islington’s Targeted Youth Support Team is looking to recruit a Targeted Youth Support Worker.

Targeted Youth Support focuses on providing early help to young people aged 10-21 within the context of whole family support. We work closely with a range of partners  to support young people to successful pathways and divert them from gangs, crime and anti-social behaviour and support them in achieving positive outcomes in relation to health and emotional well-being, relationships, and engagement in education, employment and training.

We do this by providing specific and tailored support to meet the needs of young people and their families through assessments, delivery of youth triage interventions, packages of 1-1 support, detached and group-work sessions and work in local schools.

You will be an experienced youth practitioner with direct experience in managing risk and challenging behaviour in multi-racial inner city settings.  You will have a good understanding of the issues that impact of young people and the ability to engage young people in interventions that offer challenge and support to make informed choices and change.

Closing date: Sunday 24 June 2018 at 23:59

Interview and test date: Monday 9 July 2018
