Minding the Gap service - Young People’s Worker post

Hours 35 hours per week
Pay £23,517 per annum
Contract Duration Fixed term until 31st March 2019, may be extended subject to funding
Number of posts One, employed by the Brandon Centre
Main place of work Catch 22 @ The Hive, 18 Harben Parade, Finchley Road, London, NW3 6JP

We are seeking a young person with exceptional personal skills and high motivation to be part of delivering a health and wellbeing service developed for 16-24 year olds in Camden.

The Brandon Centre is part of a unique partnership between leading providers and young people in Camden to provide a holistic, integrated service where young people can go for mental health support and practical advice, and also get help accessing other services. Managed by Catch22, the service includes a youth base for young people on the Finchley Road, co-designed with young people, and also two outreach teams of Young People’s Workers operating out of this youth base and in the community. This service is available for all young people in Camden, but particularly reaches out to vulnerable young people who do not readily engage with services.

As a Young People’s Worker, you will be employed by the Brandon Centre, and under a secondment arrangement to Catch-22 at the Hive.  You will receive your day to day line management from Catch-22 and you will be supervised by a Team Lead from the NHS with expertise in mental health or social care. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Engage on a one-to-one basis with hard to reach young people, who are either referred to the service, drop in to The Hive or whom engage via our outreach work
  • Learn, as part of one-to-one conversations with young people, goals and outcomes desired by them. This can include issues around emotional health and wellbeing, substance misuse, sexual health, physical health, education and training, housing and other areas where the young person could need support to access services
  • Support the young people to work towards their goals by building a relationship that establishes trust so that they feel able to have conversations about issues of a more personal nature
  • Apply, as part of the ongoing relationship with the young person, techniques from a variety of therapeutic and youth work models which you will be upskilled in through in-house training. 
  • Keeping excellent records and liaising with other services

You will ideally be a young person from the local area, highly approachable and with the ability to relate to the challenges that young people are facing as they transition to adulthood. You will be able to work with diverse young people from different backgrounds, and will be confident working autonomously and responding to changing circumstances. You will also have:

  • NVQ level 2 in an area related to working with vulnerable young people, a BA or BSc degree preferably in a social studies subject, or other training relevant for working with vulnerable young people including training by experience
  • Work experience (paid or voluntary) with young people from under privileged backgrounds
  • Ability to apply knowledge from varied fields to challenge behaviour and address complex  needs of vulnerable young people
  • Excellent communication skills, with ability to handle issues with sensitivity

This is an amazing opportunity to develop your skills while making a difference to your younger peers at a crucial time in their lives, and to be part of one of the first truly integrated, youth-led delivery models.

If you would like to discuss the role further, please contact Kirsty Magahy, Programme Manager for Catch-22 at the Hive on 020 3198 0520.

To apply, please complete the Brandon Centre application form and return to applications@brandoncentre.org.uk (CVs will not be accepted).
