Epic CIC is the UK’s first independent youth service mutual and social enterprise. We are a thriving social business creating value in our community. We provide guidance and support to approximately 5000 young people each year.

About the role:

The Senior Youth Support Worker will support the Senior Youth Worker in the design and delivery of an innovative and engaging youth work programme that meets the personal, social and educational development needs of young people 9-19 years of age (up to 25yrs for those young people who have a lifelong learning difficulty and / or disability).

You will also have experience of centre based youth work, in particular, occupational health and safety, child protection, off-site activities and the importance of risk assessment to enable rather than restrict experiences. Experience of working with young people from a disadvantaged background including hard to reach groups such as young people in care and young offenders is also essential and you will have experience of supervising or coordinating the work of youth workers and / or volunteers.

Additionally, you will have a track record of developing partnerships and building positive relationships with staff and external organisations.
