Job description

Oxfordshire Youth and Response have a bold new vision for the Young People’s Supported Accommodation in Oxfordshire, a brand new service model combining the power of youth work with safe and quality homes; where young people, aged between 18 and 24, are supported to develop healthy and positive bonds with their housemates and communities.

The Positive Activities Youth Worker will play an essential role within this new ground-breaking service in Oxfordshire. You will passionately believe in the potential of all young people to achieve their goals and provide positive activities which motivate, inspire and engage young people living in supported accommodation. For these young people, the weekends can be a time of uncertainty, lack of structure and support, which can lead to engaging in risky activity. Your job will be to organise and deliver a group activity that appeals to young people and encourages them to build on their strengths and strengthen relationships with their housemates. Young people will be based in Witney, Bicester, Banbury, Oxford City, Didcot and Abingdon.

We are currently seeking Positive Activities Youth Worker across our Oxford City and South, West and Vale hubs.

Our commitment to Inclusion and Diversity
OY is striving to build a team that is truly inclusive. We warmly welcome applications from marginalised groups, particularly people of colour, trans and non-binary people and disabled people. Your potential to learn and grow in the role is important to us, so even if you don’t have 100% of what we are asking for, we want to hear from you. Appointment will be made on merit alone.
