Post title: Building Young Brixton- Youth Worker

Department: Children, Young People and Families

Salary: £22,000-£25,000 per annum pro-rata

Hours: 21 hours per week


Building Young Brixton (BYB) is a Lambeth based partnership of 6 local youth, community and education specialists, working together to provide a multifaceted service for young people affected by social and financial disadvantages, risk of exclusion and gang involvement across Brixton Town Centre Wards.

Delivering place-based interventions and projects, we support young people to improve outcomes in 6 areas, providing them with key building blocks to support them to become successful, confident and civically engaged individuals: developing social and emotional capabilities; improving engagement in education; preparing for employment and careers; supporting mental well-being; developing positive relationships; increasing civic participation.

The Role of BYB Youth Worker:

The BYB Youth Worker sits at the heart of our BYB Partnership, working with children and young people aged 8-24 years on a diverse range of projects and services. Acting as the lynch pin between BYB’s 6 youth teams you will work with each organisation on an ongoing basis to support delivery of BYB activities, ensuring young people play an active and meaningful role in service delivery and are supported to access the wide range of provision available through the BYB partnership.

You will maintain a collaborative approach across BYB delivery areas, leading the facilitation of local focus groups and the BYB Young People’s Steering Group to feed into service design. You will be at ease working with and conducting outreach with young people, some of whom are from traditionally hard to reach groups, but also at building close and productive relationships with others in the local community facilitating and supporting referrals across BYB and other community groups.

You will be skilled at service delivery, whilst also possessing the administrative and organisational skills to ensure all work is clearly tracked, monitored and evaluated as per our funders requirements.

Your work across the BYB Consortium will contribute to ensuring BYB’s innovative approach to youth provision meets its aims of providing the highest quality provision and continually striving to improve and expand its services as defined by the young people.
