We are looking for a Youth Intervention Practitioner to join our team at RedThread.
We are a team of compassionate, collaborative and courageous professionals, committed to empowering young people to change their lives. Please note that we are currently recruiting for two Youth Intervention Practitioners.
As a Youth Intervention Practitioner working on our Youth Violence Intervention Programme across Nottinghamshire, primarily based in the A&E department at the Queens Medical Centre, you will support young people who are experiencing trauma or tragedy and their families. You’ll be part of a team that is fully embedded in the hospital and that is highly valued by clinicians and community partners alike.
To do this well you need to be a people person; passionate about supporting young people, and excited at the prospect of working in a fast-paced and exceptionally busy environment. You’ll need a proven ability to work with high risk, vulnerable young people and an understanding of the impact intense, short term work can have.
You must be a strong communicator: as comfortable building a relationship with a young person as you are liaising with our clinical colleagues. You’ll be keen to keep learning, seizing training opportunities at Redthread and continuously reflecting upon and improving your practice.
During the Covid-19 outbreak, our teams are still working from the hospitals as we are classed as essential workers. You will need to do shifts at the hospital, as well as working some days from home, depending on the needs of the team and the service.
In return, the successful candidate will receive a competitive salary, a supportive and flexible working environment, excellent staff training and development package and access to a range of employee benefits including; access to enhanced employee assistance programme services, employer pension scheme contribution, enhanced annual leave and family leave entitlements and more.
In the job pack, you will find a job description with a person specification including details of the terms and conditions of the post. Please read through the person specification carefully as we will be shortlisting applications using these criteria.
If this sounds like it could be the role for you, please download the full Job Description and Person Specification from our website.
