We have an exciting opportunity for a new Outreach and Support Worker to join our Aberdeen, Dundee and Fife locality team, supporting individuals in Aberdeen. Venture Trust works with people experiencing complex life circumstances. Through our work, we provide the opportunity for people to recognise their confidence, motivation and core life skills that they need to make positive changes in their lives.

This role will be working across Aberdeen with the potential to be covering the areas of Aberdeenshire and Angus in the future, where you will be the first person our participants meet. You’ll be a caring, dynamic and driven person, dedicated to levelling the playing field and equipping people with the tools they need to thrive. You’ll be comfortable and confident working autonomously, working alongside people with complex lives.

Working across Aberdeen and in the Scottish wilderness, you’ll provide bespoke and holistic 1:1 support for participants, spending time to get to know them, their strengths and where they want to go. You’ll help to shape their journeys, navigating 1:1, community and wilderness journey support, always harnessing the benefits of the outdoors and nature spaces to provide therapeutic benefit. You’ll accompany them on wilderness journeys and support them to develop employability skills.

Across Aberdeen, we need you to work closely with referrers and partners to provide joined up support for participants, managing the differing needs of your case load, including working with young people and adults.

As an Outreach and Support Worker, you will:

  • Deliver group activities outdoors in community greenspaces
  • Provide one-to-one support for participants, identifying and removing barriers to participation and supporting towards their individual goals
  • Maintain positive relationships with stakeholders, generating referrals for all programmes
  • Promote Venture Trust within local communities
  • Support the delivery of wilderness journey opportunities in Scotland’s wilder places
  • Work closely with referral partners and any other stakeholders to provide joined up support for participants
  • Work within a team structure with hybrid working arrangements
