We are looking for a high-calibre candidate to join our staff team as a Community Development Worker with the aptitude and ability to learn on the job.
The ClementJames Centre is an award-winning charity that provides programmes that address underachievement and social exclusion. We support over 2,900 children, young people and adults each year, most at risk of failing to meet their potential to go onto higher education or employment, due to disadvantage.
We have four main programmes:
- Adult Learning - supporting adults to improve their English, Maths and ICT skills. We offer a wide range of Functional Skills courses and intensive literacy & numeracy support.
- Employment Support - helping people to gain meaningful and sustainable employment. We offer tailored advice and support, mentoring and work skills activities
- Wellbeing & Support - empowering people to overcome barriers and challenges and to engage with their own wellbeing. We do this through the provision of Information, Advice and Guidance, and wellbeing support and activities
- Children & Young People’s Education - helping young people to learn, flourish and achieve their potential. We provide academic support, mentoring, intensive literacy & numeracy support and aspirational activities
The role of the Community Development Worker is a varied one and includes delivering our bespoke Employment Programme to local adults and young people, supporting with a range of health and wellbeing projects and providing at least one element of either, Advice and Guidance on a range of issues, or literacy and numeracy support to children and adults.
Our dedicated staff team is essential to the success of everything we do. Together, we work towards a fairer society where everyone is empowered to release their potential and live fulfilled lives. As a Community Development Worker you will be at the forefront of positive social change, helping local children and adults to grow and succeed.
