About the Project and Role:
'OPEN Norfolk' looks to extend the reach of OPEN's youth service to rural Norfolk. Through funding received from The department of Culture, Media and Sport and The Big lottery fund we will support at least 16 Youth clubs based within the areas of Breckland, North Norfolk, Great Yarmouth and Norwich. Open will support youth groups by offering:
• Support in gaining an Ambition First Steps Quality Mark
• A programme of regular open access positive activities
• A high quality volunteer programme
• Regular fundraising events to support sustainability
• Training for youth club staff and volunteers
• Support to aid developed PR and marketing
Through this project OPEN Youth Trust (OPEN) will work alongside our beneficiaries and other local youth services to improve impact and quality of provision and help safeguard services for the future. They will ensure the continuation of services by stabilising income streams, developing partnership arrangements and collaborations with other agencies to share resources, skills and learning.
They are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, dynamic and resourceful Great Yarmouth Youth Lead to play a key role in developing, delivering and supporting 'OPEN Norfolk'. The successful candidate will be developing collaborative relationships with other youth organisations and delivering positive activities as well as overseeing a team who will be delivering positive activities within youth clubs and schools in the Great Yarmouth and wider area. The candidate will also be expected to work from our main office in Norwich during the day, generally one day a week (likely to be a Tuesday) to complete administrative tasks and attend team meetings.
The role requires a combination of strength in a variety of youth work settings, relationship building, formal and informal coaching, managing people, community development and practical judgment.
You will work with children and young people from a wide range of backgrounds, and be committed to improving children and young people's emotional wellbeing. You will also be committed to developing a strong team and creating connections with other youth organisations to enable new opportunities for young people in the local area.
The post requires evening work and occasional weekends.
