WE ARE RECRUITING 2 SENIOR YOUTH CASEWORKER POSITIONS (ONE IN CROYON AND ONE IN BRENT)
SALARY: £31,392 (pro-rata) + 5% pension contribution
HOURS: 14 hours per week (0.4 FTE) in Brent and 21 hours (0.6 FTE) per week in Croydon. These roles are job shares in each location with an existing part time caseworker.
LOCATION: At present, all Young Roots staff are working from home. Outside of a lockdown period, one of these roles is based in our office in Brent, and the other in our office in Croydon. Caseworkers will frequently be required to travel across London for appointments with young people.
This is an exciting opportunity to join dedicated teams in Brent and Croydon as a Senior Youth Caseworker.
The Senior Youth Caseworker will be responsible for providing intensive 1-to-1 practical and emotional support to young refugees and asylum seekers (11 to 25 years old), supporting them through the asylum process and advocate on their behalf to enable them to access their full statutory rights and entitlements to education, social services support, housing, health care and legal advice. The caseworker will manage their own caseload and help the Service Manager with monitoring and evaluation of the service.
We are a value-based, passionate and committed organisation offering a friendly working environment, although due to the current ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the role will initially be home-based.
Young Roots recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We value the differences that a diverse workforce brings and are committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, and particularly welcome BAME candidates and those with lived experience of migration and the asylum system. Our selection procedures ensure that people are treated on the basis of their relevant merits, experience, skills and abilities. Young Roots is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults. Successful applicants will be required to undertake a criminal record check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
