Halton Borough Council seek to appoint a Young People Case Workers to lead the development, management and implementation of strategies of intervention for a case load of young people who are at risk of, or are not in education, employment or training, or whose activity is not known to the Council.
You will use your expertise and experience to review the participation history of young people and assess the needs of individuals before determining the best intervention to progress each young person to. Based on your analysis you will make referrals to other services or agencies, who will be the ones working directly with the young person. There will be phone, email and messaging contact with young people within this role but face to face contact will not be frequent. You will be speaking to other services and maintaining records more than you will be in contact with young people.
This role forms part of Halton Borough Council’s strategy to meet our statutory duties in relation to Raising the Participation Age and you will work as part of the 14-19 Programme Team, contributing to the development, promotion, implementation and evaluation of the team’s work and taking a lead on areas of work that support the Team. The 14-19 Strategic Analysis and Work Priorities document available within the Post 16 Education section of the Halton Borough Council website gives further insight into the work of the Team.
You must have a level 6 qualification in a relevant field of service or management and experience of managing an area of work within services to support young people. You must have experience of developing effective partnerships across services and of working directly with young people, including young people with multiple barriers to participation.
Please note we are currently working remotely, following Government guidance to work from home. This is expected to continue for some time yet and therefore the successful candidate will need to be able to work remotely.
