Our company in a nutshell

About usWe have challenges few other places have. Pockets of disadvantage in an otherwise affluent society create problems seldom found elsewhere. Young people often experience those difficulties more than other groups in society. As the only adult in the lives of young people who is not an authority figure, you will be able to base the relationships you develop on trust and mutual respect. You will be the one who doesn't ban actions, but supports young people to understand the implications of the choices they make.Bringing out the best in others will bring out the best in you.A high quality integrated youth service has to be grounded in the needs of young people. It also has to play to the strengths of our team, and lead to improved outcomes. This means building and strengthening partnerships with young people, parents and communities, and working closely with other agencies, both statutory and voluntary. We're proud to say that these successful outcomes and the strength of our service's reputation have led to the creation of new posts in a variety of areas.Uppermost, through all our work, we ensure the voice and influence of young people is reflected in everything we do.RolesWe have a variety of roles available, some of which we're proud to say are newly generated due to the great work and success of our services to date. There are a range of full and part-time positions so there's bound to be something that suits you, your skills and aspirations.Training It's as important to us as it is to you.
