About the Organisation

St Paul’s Youth Forum (SPYF) aims to alleviate the worst effects of poverty in the Blackhill/Provanmill area of Glasgow through our programmes for young people and our local community, focusing on eating, education, exercise and empowerment.

Purpose of the role

This is a senior leadership post in our organisation and wish passionate and skilled youth work leaders to apply for this exciting opportunity. The role involves working with young people to arrange events, activities and training to develop their ability to fully participate in forums, after school, weekend, holiday club events and consultations as appropriate. The Youth Work Manager will also engage with the Activity Team and the SPYF Molendinar Community Centre Teams to ensure that the young people have a full and varied programme of activity with SPYF.

Vital to the culture of the Youth Work Team and the practice are that the SPYF service is Youth-led and that young people's voices are central to the provision offered to them. SPYF also wants to ensure that the youth work team is:

Inclusive, equal and diverse.

  • Has respect for all.
  • Works in a quality and safe environment and ensures the well-being of the young people and the staff.
  • Empowers its staff and young people.
  • Creates an environment of Positivity.

Working closely with staff, Trustees, local authorities, funders and external commercial organisations, the Youth Work Manager will work to ensure that the SPYF youth work team will be vibrant, welcoming, well-managed that operates for the benefit of, not only local residents, but young people throughout Provanmill, Blackhill and the surrounding localities.

We are looking for someone who is keen to work with dedicated and passionate colleagues and who is a good fit with the values of our organisation. For this role, having the right mind-set, attitude and approach is as important to us as having the right experience and skills. We appreciate that the best person might not yet have all the general requirements listed, so if you feel that your current skills and experience will help you to make a great contribution in this role and you have the right mind-set, we would welcome an application from you.
