We are looking to increase our bank of sessional staff and are seeking Sessional Youth and Community workers to provide absence and training leave cover within our Youth, Growing Spaces and Digital Inclusion projects.
Experience of working with people in youth and/or community setting is required, as well as the ability to work creatively to develop innovative and engaging youth and community activities.
These posts require evening and weekend working. There are a diverse range of shift patterns available for evenings and weekends.
We are also looking for staff that will be available to work on our busy summer programme which will run from 9am - 5pm on weekdays during the school holidays.
