We work with the most vulnerable young people to address emerging needs, improve life chances and reduce escalation to more expensive and intensive services.  This includes supporting those challenged in education, their community or home life, to ensure a successful transition to adulthood.  The young people are typically 11-17 (up to 25 for Care Leavers and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities).

There are several different job roles which support young people to succeed, and we are recruiting to some right now.

We’ve got opportunities across our districts within Hertfordshire, with positions including:

  • Senior Youth Worker
  • Youth Worker
  • Youth Worker (Development)
  • Youth Support Worker
  • Youth Support Worker in Charge
  • Senior Personal Adviser
  • Personal Adviser
  • CEIAG Development Worker

Some of our priorities right now include:

  • Working with the most vulnerable young people in the community – including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
  • School and College Inclusion – including those missing from education, those at risk of disengaging, and those at risk of no transition plan/strategy.
  • Working with young people who are not in education, employment, or training (NEET) to achieve sustained education, employment, or training (EET) outcomes.
  • A traded offer to schools and colleges, primarily of careers education, information, advice, and guidance (CEIAG), personal development (Youth Work) and work-related learning (WRL).  
  • Support, coordination, promotion, and development of the voluntary youth sector.

We support our employees in their career development, here is Kate’s journey with us:

If you want young people in Hertfordshire to have the opportunity to succeed, we want to hear from you.
