Do you have strong leadership skills? Are you a team player and enjoy team activities? Can you develop and deliver workshops? Can you be a positive role model for the young people we support? If you want to have the chance to join our amazing team in Monmouthshire, then read on.....

What is special about this opportunity?

Our Monmouthshire Young Persons Schemes provide supported accommodation to young people aged 16-24. Our clients may have led difficult lives and as a result display a range of complex behaviours and needs, including alcohol and substance misuse, mental health, NEET and offending behaviour. The scheme provides 24-hour support for young people to build and develop their skills and confidence, so they can be resettled and maintain their own tenancy within the Monmouthshire area.

The role will be varied and involve working with vulnerable young people in temporary accommodation to prevent homelessness and develop skills needed to maintain their tenancies, change negative behaviour, maintain their health and wellbeing, progress to independent living and make appropriate choices.

As part of a growing organisation there are endless opportunities for training, career development and progression. Surrounded by an experienced team, this truly is an exciting opportunity for you to develop within the support sector. You will contribute to the success of the Pobl Group, which is moving from strength to strength see www.poblgroup.co.uk.

This is a permanent post at 37 hours per week.

For this role you will require an Enhanced DBS check, which we pay for.

How can I make a difference?

Our team works to support service users to develop the key skills to achieve positive progression and to develop the skills to re-settle in the community. Project Workers are expected to lead each shift and to direct the work of Scheme Support Officers.

You will:

* Work with young people to truly make a difference in their life
* Use your skills and talents to engage with young people
* Support people to achieve their potential
* Develop your networking skills by working in partnership with external agencies
* Have a chance to gain a QCF Level 2/3 qualification in Health & Social Care
