Cyrenians Key to Potential service provides holistic, person-centred support, to help young people coming up to school leaving age to progress into further education, training, or secure employment.  This new post is an extension to the Key to Potential project, in response to increasing demand. 

 Using an outreach approach, the post holder will provide key work, careers guidance and tailored support to young people identified by their school as at risk of leaving without a positive destination, likely to be struggling to engage with mainstream curriculum and have experienced disrupted attendance.

 The role will also be involved in the Game On Project, a new personal skills and development programme aimed at care-experienced young people and built around the attraction of football - the game and the business.   The post holder will support participants to progress from the programme towards realising their full potential.

 You should be experienced in working with vulnerable young people (14-24 years old), have the ability to build excellent working relationships; and be positive, creative and flexible in delivering support. You should also have the ability to demonstrate our values of compassion, respect, integrity and innovation in the work that you do.

Closing date is 12 noon on Monday 19th April 2021.  
Interviews will be held on Monday 26th April 2021.
CVs will not be accepted.
