A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a passionate and enthusiastic individual to join the Town Council’s Youth Service!

You will be someone who can lead a team of Youth Workers to co-produce a provision that is youth-led, evidence-informed and delivers high-quality outcomes so that young people can live their best life and thrive.

Keynsham is a thriving market town within the Bath and North East Somerset Council area. The Town Council serves a population of approximately 19,000 with further increases in population anticipated over the next few years.

In addition to a wide range of facilities managed by the Council, it is currently working to expand and improve our Youth Service provision and team.

Youth Development Officer

As a Youth Development Officer, you’ll be responsible for leading and managing the Youth Service Team. You will work as an active member of that team to develop a youth service where children and young people’s voices are heard, where they have fun, learn, grow and are empowered. To achieve these outcomes, you will work closely with young people and your team to create, implement and effective plans and programs for the open access Youth Club. You will monitor and evaluate the work to ensure high quality outcomes.

You and your team will enable a range of services and provision that are accessible for all young people in a youth club setting. You will lead and co-produce with young people and your youth work team a relevant, informal, welcoming environment for the 11-18 age group. You will lead an open access youth work session that is specifically designed to bring together a range of information, advice, guidance, learning and social opportunities for young people in the locality.

The role will offer you opportunities to display talent and passion for working with young people. Also, to use your creativity, talents, people management skills and knowledge to run a successful youth work provision for young people. It will also provide you with development opportunities to grow.

If you believe you have the skills and experience to fulfil this post and drive to move forward our exciting programme for change, we would love to hear from you.
