Tunbridge Wells, Kent
£23,390 per year (35 hours per week), with some evenings and weekends
Contract, Full-time
Job description

The Get it free condom distribution scheme offers free condoms, information, and support to young people aged 13-21 living in Kent, via distribution sites, online ordering, and community outreach. Get it is an innovative programme that has been built in collaboration with young people and forms an integral part of the suite of sexual & reproductive health services delivered by METRO Charity.

The right candidate for this role will be a motivated, flexible, and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about working with young people. You will be able to work closely with your colleagues to promote the Get it scheme, to deliver outreach and training to young people, and to link young people to their local contraceptive and other sexual health services.

Outreach will be conducted in several settings depending on the need of different young people living throughout Kent. These could be educational settings, youth settings, community events, sports settings, clubs and pubs, and local green spaces. You will target vulnerable young people, such as Looked after Children (LAC), those who are NEET, those who come from areas of high deprivation and high need, and those with other increased risk factors. You must therefore be able and willing to employ an appropriate and non-judgemental way of working with a variety of young people, both 1:1 as well as in small groups and larger training sessions.

You will welcome direction from the Kent Get it Programme Lead, but you will also be proactive in seeking out new opportunities and mechanisms to deliver the scheme. You will also have a responsibility of safeguarding and child protection, and ensuring young people under the age of 16 have been risk assessed during the registration process.
