Blend Youth Project represents the youth provision of the charity Valley CiDS.  Working across five delivery sites, we provide a range of youth work activities and support services for young people in their local communities together with alternative education & training opportunities for young people who are disengaged from learning or struggling to access mainstream education.

The role of the ‘Senior Youth Worker / Branch Coordinator’ offers an exciting opportunity for an experienced worker to take a lead role in managing and developing provision at our youth branch in Heanor, Derbyshire, so that it effectively engages with disadvantaged & marginalised young people, leaving a lasting impact on their lives and future prospects.

We are looking for an outstanding candidate with a proven track record of delivering high quality provision. You will be an effective leader and manager and will be able to develop positive working relationships with staff, young people, parents, partner agencies and the local community. You will be a highly enthusiastic, innovative and motivated individual who will be an advocate for the learning and development needs of all young people attending our provision.

Blend Youth Project is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All successful candidates will therefore be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks along with other relevant employment checks.
