Sessional Worker
Solihull Youth Justice Service is a multi-agency partnership committed to preventing and reducing youth crime and anti-social behaviour across the borough.

We currently have an opportunity for a highly motivated youth worker. Working on a sessional basis, your hours can be managed flexibly around your studies, caring responsibilities or even another job. As a member of the team, we are seeking to recruit a confident and highly motivated person who will contribute and support the delivery of the Youth Justice workload, with particular emphasis on the supervision of young people undertaking YJS activities such as reparation and prevention activities in line with their bail support, Court and pre-Court disposals.

You will also have a role in delivering preventative youth work services to children and young people who may exhibit early risk factors of involvement in youth crime in order to improve their life chances and reduce the risk of offending. In this highly rewarding role you will contribute to the reduction of youth crime through engaging children and young people and the delivery of targeted, specialist interventions.
To be suitable for this position you will have:

• Educated to GCSE Level (or equivalent) or have a relevant Level 2 qualification.
• Significant experience working with young people in a paid or voluntary capacity.
• Experience of working with vulnerable children and young people, including those with complex needs and overcoming barriers.
• Experience of delivering targeted, specialist youth work programmes either in groups or individually with young people.
• Knowledge of child development and an awareness of the differing needs of children and young people
In return, we offer a great opportunity for you to develop your skills and knowledge whilst playing a key role in making a difference by having a positive impact on the lives of children and young people. We also offer:

• A range of flexible working options
• Generous annual leave entitlements with the opportunity to purchase up to 10-days additional leave per year
• A flexitime scheme with up to 24 days per year
• Access to our Employee Assistance Programme – a 24 hour independent, free and confidential advice and support service
• Family and carer friendly policies • Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme • Employee benefits including staff discounts, subsidised travel passes and Cycle 2 Work Scheme
We are currently implementing our Smarter Ways of Working as we recognise that work is what you do and not necessarily where you go. Our aim is to balance the needs of our employees with service delivery and, for the majority of our roles, to enable our people to be able to work remotely wherever possible.

An enhanced DBS is required for this position.

Please note we do not accept CV’s for this post.

Closing date – 14th August 2022.

Interviews will be held on Week commencing 22nd August 2022.
