We're currently recruiting paid staff & volunteers, for various roles and at various levels (see below).
Please contact us via the details shown, to let us know if you're keen to join us.
We're currently looking at a range of recruitment options including paid staff & volunteers, in both Chard & Crewkerne, where we currently have services*.
We're looking for committed part-time staff to help deliver our programmes of positive activities & services at local Youth & Community Centres in Chard & Crewkerne.
We provide positive leisure & recreation, support and informal learning as well as personal & social development opportunities, across various age groups (from 6 - 19). We want staff who can contribute to delivering these services as part of a small team.
We want people who are positive & flexible and although experience would be required for a higher level of role as Youth Worker, we can also appoint staff with less experience (but the right outlook), to join as Support Workers and further develop & progress 'on-the-job'.
Currently, we deliver services on 2 evenings per week in Crewkerne & 3 nights per week in Chard. We work across different age groups & we have a team of young volunteers who also help run services. Working with young volunteers is a key part of the role, alongside delivering a safe, positive environment & programme for all service users.
We can recruit staff flexibly to single evenings or various combinations of regular evenings, in either or both locations.
Rate of pay is primarily dependant on experience, ability & levels of responsibility undertaken, but would also recognise relevant qualifications (if held) as well as subsequent development & contribution, once in post.
Specific, additional activity skills or experience in sports, crafts, cooking, creativity can all be an advantage, but are not essential. Mostly we want people who are positive about young people & children and committed to their development & providing services that they enjoy & value.
*Over the coming year, we also plan to regrow other services that were put on-hold elsewhere, due to Covid, but the first stage for now, is to recruit for those locations & services which we currently have open.
