This is a permanent role within Scran Academy with the core purpose of leading the personal and social development of young people by being the driving force of our Academy Programme.

The successful candidate will help change the lives of young people facing poverty by supporting them through a year-long programme of non-formal learning in a youth work setting. The role is incredibly rewarding but also particularly challenging, as professional boundaries and responsibilities need to be balanced skilfully within compassionate, positive relationships. Candidates with demonstrable experience of this in a role supporting vulnerable groups will be at an advantage.

The post holder will act as a critical relationship builder and point of contact for young people on the programme, and be the operational link for families and referral partners, including schools.

The Youth Development Coordinator will be responsible for the overall delivery and development of the Academy programme, and for ensuring young people are engaged across our organisation.
