Hertfordshire County Council Services for Young People is the primary provider of youth work; information, advice and careers guidance; work related learning and work experience to young people in Hertfordshire.

 

The Service is a key contributor to the prevention and early intervention / early help agenda including Hertfordshire County Council’s aim of supporting young people to make a successful transition to an economically independent adult life.

The Service delivers targeted prevention and early intervention work to ensure that young people get the help they need early and to reduce the necessity for higher cost specialist intervention. 

It enables young people to succeed by providing high quality informal education opportunities to promote their personal and social development.  It supports young people who are challenged in education, their communities or home life to ensure a successful transition to adulthood.

You will deliver projects and 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 and partners, to respond flexibly to their needs and to the priorities of the Service.  Good IT, organisation and communication skills are essential as you will need to record data on a management information system, meet targets, produce reports and correspond with young people, parents and partners.

You will 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.

You will have a nationally recognised JNC qualification for Youth and Community Workers and evidence of continued professional development or the ability to study at post graduate level and the willingness to complete a JNC qualification in your own time.  Course fees will be paid for by the Council.
