Job description

We are recruiting for a Children & Young People’s Youth/Play Worker to provide age appropriate positive activities for children and young people across Greater Manchester. This project is funded by Children in Need (CIN) and enables us to deliver group work to children and young people to engage with their peers, to get out of a difficult home situation and support them to build a positive peer support network.

TLC: Talk, Listen, Change is a dynamic, leading relationships charity based in Greater Manchester. 

The role

In this role you will develop and organise the delivery of peer support and positive activities for children and young people who may have witnessed/experienced domestic abuse. 

About you

You wil be confident in delivering group work, assessing and managing group dynamics with children and young people. You  will be creative and imaginative in your approach and have experience in gaining young people’s trust. You’ll have an understanding of the impact of domestic abuse and be passionate about supporting children and young people. You will also have comprehensive safeguarding and child protection knowledge. Above all you’ll bring a positive, solution focused attitude.

About us

Funding secured will enable TLC: Talk, Listen Change to grow our work with perpetrators of domestic abuse, their partners, and families. Over the coming twelve months, we are expanding existing programmes and developing several new ones, reaching considerably more people than we ever have before, and pioneering new approaches in this crucial area of work. This is a pivotal time for TLC: Talk Listen Change and we are looking for enthusiastic, experienced, engaged and highly motivated people to join our rapidly expanding team.

We aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths. We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest pool, reflecting the diverse range of people we support.


We value the importance of flexible working. Our services are a hybrid of online and in person delivery and therefore this role will include travelling to locations primarily in Stockport and Wigan to deliver face to face sessions, although there may also be a requirement to deliver sessions across Greater Manchester. This role can be home based or in our office, Trafford House, Chester Road Manchester, M32 0RS. If home based there will be a requirement to travel to the office for training and meetings. We also value the importance of human connection so offer the flexibility to book working space in Trafford House. As in person external meetings and events return there will also be a requirement to travel across Greater Manchester and sometimes wider. 

We want to make our recruitment processes accessible to everyone, so if there is any way that we can support you to be the best you can be, please contact us. 

This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Please note: we will be shortlisting applications on an on-going basis so we encourage applicants not to wait until the closing date to submit an application where possible.
