The Youth Service aims to provide opportunities for personal learning and development for young people in Sandwell.  The service is made up of Centre-Based, Detached, Youth Voice and Targeted Youth Work Teams working across the six towns in Sandwell.

We are looking for Youth Workers who can meet the needs and aspirations of young people and deliver high quality Youth Work.

The successful applicants will plan and deliver services and activities, within a centre-based, detached, SEND, outdoor education, youth arts or targeted youth work setting.

Within the posts available, most are general youth work posts but we are particularly interested in people who have some knowledge, skills or experience of music production who could work with young people in our recording studio.  In addition we’re also looking for someone with some experience in outdoor education who could help us deliver adventurous activities at our Outdoor Education Centre.

This post requires an Enhanced DBS check.

You must possess a level 2 Youth Work qualification or have a willingness to work towards completion of this as soon as available within the service.

If you feel you have the experience and knowledge required, then we would like to hear from you.

Our Values; Trust, Unity and Progress make us unique, they define how we do things and are reflected in the way we behave. They are important to us, guiding and shaping our organisational culture. Our values are key to us achieving Sandwell’s Vision 2030 and also guide us when we recruit.
