The priority for YC Hertfordshire, Hertfordshire County Council’s youth service, is targeted prevention and early intervention to ensure that young people get the help they need early and to reduce the necessity for higher cost specialist intervention.

You will deliver projects and programmes and will be supported to establish new initiatives which develop, with young people, stimulating and challenging youth work programmes. You will work in group settings and deliver one-to-one to identified individuals.
You will have the ability to quickly establish positive relationships with diverse groups of young people, to respond flexibly to their needs and to the priorities of the Service. You will need to be a good communicator and advocate of young people.
You will be required to deliver face to face work in accordance with JNC terms and conditions including residentials. You will be required to travel across the county so access to a vehicle is essential.
