Cyngor Bwrdeistref Sirol Blaenau Gwent
An exciting and rewarding opportunity has opened for an enthusiastic individual to join the authority's Youth Service team and help provide mentoring, support, information and guidance to young people currently, or at risk of becoming, NEET.

As a Youth and Community Worker you will provide support to young people to identify personal barriers to gaining employment, education and/or training and help plan and deliver training opportunities to help them gain the skills they need to participate fully in all available opportunities.

You will develop strong links with education/training providers and career/employment agencies in order to help meet the needs of the young person and overcome barriers for young people in accessing information regarding education, training and employment.

As this post is agile, you will have the ability to undertake the role within Youth Service settings and at home as well as other young people's settings across the Borough.

Essential to the role is a relevant professional qualification in Youth Work and the ability to register as a 'Youth Worker' with the EWC (Wales). Previous experience of working with at risk young people, including the delivery of mentoring & support, is also essential.

If you have studied Youth Work as part of a qualification that would allow you to be registered as a 'Youth Worker' with the EWC and it is not clearly identified in the qualifications title, please state in your application what was undertaken and to what level.

Required skills include;
  • excellent interpersonal / communication skills with the ability to relate to and enthuse young people,
  • the ability to work independently and as part of a multi-agency team,
  • the ability to assess the needs of young people and develop appropriate action plans and
  • a high level of personal resilience, including the ability to manage conflict and deal with stressful situations.

This post can also be offered as a secondment opportunity. Before applying for this as a secondment opportunity, candidates should seek approval to be released from their current post by their Line Manager. Secondments are available to permanent staff of the Authority only.

Access to a vehicle for work purposes is a requirement of the role.

Thorough pre-employment screening is undertaken during the recruitment process. The postholder will be required to complete an application for a Disclosure of Criminal Records.

Closing Date: 15 th February 2024 - 12 midnight
