Job Description
We Are St Helens Borough Council

Located in the heart of the Northwest close to Liverpool, Manchester and Lancashire, St Helens is a transformational Council, which is passionate and ambitious for the communities we support. We provide a wide range of local authority services to the residents, businesses, schools, and visitors to the borough. We can only do this because of our highly valued, highly skilled workforce.

Working together, our workplace vision and values guide our organisation, and the contribution of our workforce is key to our culture journey. Employees with us receive a wide range of benefits including well-being in work, financial benefits, ways of working and learning and development support.

St Helens Education Welfare has an exciting new project which is looking to recruit a Youth Engagement Officer to work in partnership with young people aged 11 - 16 years who have been identified as requiring early help through a Social Prescribing model.

Young people are referred to the Service for many reasons which can include many barriers to attending school including poor mental health and well being.

The Youth Engagement Officer will work in partnership with other professionals and agencies to ensure that young people are receiving the help and support they require. The Youth Engagement Officers role will be to help young people to identify their own goals and provide interventions which supports them to overcome specific difficulties and make a positive change, either through one-to-one support or group work.

 Interested candidates should have a clear understanding of early Intervention and targeted youth work and be committed to improving outcomes for young people

 This Authority is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
