Post: Climate Action Fife Youth Worker
Hours: 22 hours per week
Salary: £22,386 pro-rata
Location: Home based and Fife wide delivery
Contract: 5 years fixed term
The Climate Action Fife Youth Worker will be responsible for developing and delivering the Climate Action Fife programme and supporting Youth 1st member groups. Using a youth work approach, you will help make a real difference to Fife’s carbon footprint and help young people to have a say in their own futures.
While it’s key that you have a keen interest in climate change, Youth 1st is looking for a new team member to be a youth worker at heart. This role will involve working extensively with young people so skills and experience relevant to that will be viewed favourably.
This role is perfect for you if you are passionate, energetic and enthusiastic. You will love working with young people and enjoy building relationships with a wide range of people across Fife. You will be expected to co-ordinate and deliver face-to-face youth work sessions using a range of youth work tools. If you have knowledge of climate change and Youth Awards, this would be a bonus.
If you are up for the challenge and would like to work in a fantastic team, Youth 1st would love to hear from you! Your application will be a CV and a supporting statement. Your supporting statement must provide evidence of your experience working with young people and the various criteria outlined in the job description.
Please e-mail your supporting statement and CV to [email protected]. The deadline for applications is 29 August 2022 with a view to interviews taking place on week commencing Monday 05 September 2022. If required as part of a second interview, the team may ask you to deliver a session to young people.
If you have any questions about the job or about working at Youth 1st, please contact [email protected] or call 01592 645355.
