Flexibility of hours will be required to deliver youth work programs, core hours will be between 9:30 - 5:30, with some evening sessions (6.30pm - 8.30pm) required.

Responsibilities will include developing and eventually leading physical and sporting activity programmes such as Football, Basketball and other team games. The apprentice will also assist in developing Club4 School Holiday Programmes, which are positive and enriching activities for young people receiving free school meals. The activities at the youth centre are incredibly diverse, meaning that we can also adapt some of the apprentice's responsibilities to reflect their personal and career interests.

We particularly welcome applicants from female, black, minority, ethnic (BME) communities, disabled people and homosexual, bisexual and trans (LGBT) communities, as they are currently underrepresented within our workforce.
