About the role:
Chance UK has been delivering early-intervention mentoring programmes across London since 1995. Mentors pick the child up from home and run a 1:1 session in the community, once a week for 2-4 hours. They use the solution-focused approach to work on building the child’s self-esteem and confidence, set goals and explore new places.
We are running a project in collaboration with Victim Support to offer mentoring to 5-11 year olds who have witnessed domestic abuse, called Safer Space+. All children on the programme have also taken part in Victim Support’s 8-week therapeutic intervention. Whilst our work is always child-led, we anticipate that this programme could involve particularly challenging conversations or behaviour, and Chance UK are therefore looking for Youth Workers with experience of successfully navigating similar situations to mentor a small caseload of children on this programme.
The job description is a general outline of the duties and responsibilities the post holder may be required to undertake other duties as may reasonably be required from time to time.
Please see the following Job Description for the Personal Specification:
Please send a CV and 1 page covering letter to email@example.com by Monday 10th February 2020.
We are looking for successful candidates to start as soon as possible and therefore applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and interviews scheduled accordingly.
The Chance UK team are passionate about creating child-centred, solution-focused interventions which make a difference. We are a forward thinking team, creatively looking at ways of adapting and growing our programmes, whilst continuing to deliver best practice.
We are looking for two committed Trustees – one with expertise in Fundraising and one with experience in Communications or Evaluation who share our values, to join the Board during this time of growth and change.
