Job description

Organisation

Carney’s Community’s services are targeted at disadvantaged young people aged 11 to 30 who come from deprived backgrounds in Wandsworth, Lambeth and the surrounding areas. Our aim is to reduce offending, re-offending and anti-social behaviour in the area, whilst improving social mobility and community cohesion. We aim to build the self-discipline, self-esteem, confidence and employability of young people to reduce offending and anti-social behaviour and enable disadvantaged young people to reach their full potential. We engage young people in positive and constructive activity (including boxing) whilst providing intensive, long-term and consistent one-to-one mentoring which offers unconditional support with empathy. Overall, we believe that by empowering young people through these activities, focusing on their strengths and learning from each other, they can improve their future opportunities, and the local community. 

Our home is Carney’s Community Centre, which houses a boxing gym, youth club, music studio, bike workshop, kitchen, and our offices. We run our sessions here, and also support some older participants to organise new activities and businesses of their own.

Role Overview

As part of the Carney’s team, your role will be to lead on and oversee all key work activity at Carney’s Community. This includes one to one, group work and supervision of a small team of key workers.  You will work closely with the CEO to develop, manage and deliver these services.

You will provide advice, practical support and befriending to a caseload of participants, aged 11-30, who are at risk of offending or social exclusion; to encourage and enable them to participate in Carney’s Community’s personal development opportunities and to access the wider services and support they may need in order to give them the best chances of being “the best they can be”.

This will involve supporting young people to engage in positive and constructive activities, attend YOT/Probation appointments and creating opportunities for their personal, social and emotional development. You will arrange workshops for young people on appropriate topics like employability skills e.g. CV building and interview skills. You will be committed to ensuring that provision is accessible and relevant to the target group regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, disability and social background.

The person who takes on this role, will also work to develop systems and training to support the team of key workers. You will work to develop the staff team to support them to build key work skills. Our current goal is to increase our capacity and approach to key work, to develop the staff team’s capabilities in this area and build on the support we offer to those most in need.

It is essential that the candidate has proven experience of project based youth/key work delivery. The ability to empathise and mediate for young people is crucial. The appointed candidate will have a strong understanding of the local area, barriers facing young people, the interplay between material disadvantage, vulnerability and social exclusion and be highly skilled in diplomacy, professional distance, demonstrating empathy, boundaries and sound judgement.

Carney’s Community is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. All applicants who meet the requirements of the role will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, colour, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age, or marital status. Having said that, our community of participants is made up of over 50% black young people so we particularly encourage black applicants to apply for this role to help improve our representation on our management team to reflect the community we serve.
