  • targeting individuals and groups to improve engagement.
  • Working with a network of local agencies and community partners leading partnership activities.

  • Experience of working in a youth/community/education setting
  • Knowledge of child protection practices and health and safety.
  • Experience in 1 to 1 mentoring/counselling
