Senior Fearless Outreach Worker - London

£ 26,000 pa

37.5 hours per week

1 year Fixed Term Contract – subject to review of funding

Fearless is the youth brand for Crimestoppers UK, the only national crime reduction 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 to deliver this message.

As the Fearless representative in London you will focus on engaging and educating young people to report crime anonymously, without having to go to the police.

You’ll deliver an exciting Fearless programme, working with young people in a variety of settings 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 working in close partnership with key stakeholders, including the Mayor of London’s Office for Police and Crime, Metropolitan Police Service teams, schools, youth centres and youth charities.  You’ll 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 London.

Identifying funding opportunities to expand and support the service will be something you’ll work closely with the London Regional Manager to do and they’ll be a real focus on building productive networks with partners.

We are looking for individuals with a creative flair, to help us maximise our use of social networking to expand our reach, so an interest in creative media production would be an asset.

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

To apply, please submit your Covering Letter & CV by the closing date.  A selection process, including interviews and presentation will be held in February.
