Current vacancies

Youth Worker

  • Part time
  • £26,208 pro-rata
  • Hybrid: Callander
  • Closing 26th July 2024

As a youth worker with CYP, your primary role will be contributing to the planning, delivery and evaluation of CYP’s youth provision. The job role is based in Callander, although may at times require travel to the surrounding area. This role is initially for a fixed-term of 12 months, although it is hoped that funding can be secured to allow the continuation of this role.

The core elements of this role will be:

  • Planning, delivery and evaluation of our weekly after-school groups for P6, P7 and S1-3 ages.
  • Responsibility for several weekly 1-1 or small group sessions with referred pupils from the local high school.
  • Planning and delivery of summer holiday activity programmes.
  • Supporting the delivery of employability work with young people who are either employed or undergoing training within our social enterprises.
  • Any other tasks to support or develop CYP’s youth provision, as identified through discussions with your line manager.

The role will normally be two set days per week (Mondays and Tuesdays) to accommodate our regular provision schedule, in addition to a flexible half-day for planning and paperwork. This half-day may be available to work from home, if preferred. Working days may vary from time-to-time for occasional or one-off sessions (e.g. Christmas trips or weekends).
