OPEN Youth Trust is looking for a North Norfolk youth lead to help develop activity opportunities for young people in the district.

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. We 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. We will ensure the continuation of our services by stabilising income streams, developing partnership arrangements and collaborations with other agencies to share resources, skills and learning.


We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, dynamic and resourceful North Norfolk 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 North Norfolk 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.
