Fearless is the youth brand for Crimestoppers Trust, the national crime reporting charity.  Our work is focused on helping young people make informed decisions about reporting crime.

We have a really important message; we don’t want any young person to live with, or in fear of crime, so we provide awareness workshops and the ability to report crime anonymously, without having to go to the police.  Fearless is recruiting a youth outreach worker to deliver this message to young people across Sheffield.

Working 22.5 hours per week, you will work with young people in a variety of settings including schools and youth groups delivering age-appropriate workshops.  So we are looking for people who are dynamic, passionate and have a natural ability to engage young people. You’ll be comfortable talking about tricky issues - such as how serious organised crime affects young people and you’ll have a sound understanding of safeguarding.

Alongside this you will contribute to our professionals training – we’ve already trained 2,000 professionals to deliver the Fearless message to the young people that they work with, and we want to expand this effort across Sheffield.

As you will regularly come in to contact with young people, the successful applicants will be asked to complete a Disclosure & Barring Service application.

To apply, please submit your Covering Letter & CV by 4th March 2019.  A selection process, including interview and presentation will be held, date TBC.
