Do you want an opportunity to join a new team that is being set up to provide excellence in the support for young people? 

 

From 1st July 2020 a new consortium commenced in Leeds relating to Young People’s Service.  Turning Lives Around is part of a consortium with Gipsil and Foundation called Our Way Leeds. Our Way Leeds is a housing and support service based in Leeds for young people aged between 16 and 25 years old offering support to develop and live independently.   

We would like you to apply to work for us if you have a passion to provide excellent services to young people, help and advise them to achieve their potential and reach independence. Most important is your ability to engage with the young people living in the project and the aptitude to respond to emergencies if they arise. 

As well as a basic understanding of tenancy support, the successful applicant must demonstrate some comprehension of the issues faced by young people, some who may have multiple and complex needs and may also display high risk behaviours. Although relevant experience of working with young people is preferable, most important is that you’re able to engage with them and have the ability to manage emergencies. 

 

The hours of work are primarily determined by the needs of the service and are worked on a rota basis, which will include weekend and bank holiday working. Currently these are between 10pm and 8am. 

 

To find out more about the above role prior to applying please contact Grace Pegden on 07548 802 410. Please note application by CV’s will not be considered. 

An application pack can be downloaded from Vacancies on our website at www.turninglivesaround.co.uk. Alternatively, email jobs@turninglivesaround.co.uk or call 0113 276 0616. 

Turning Lives Around (TLA) is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all children, young people and adults. TLA will take all reasonable steps to promote safe practice and protect children, young people and adults from harm, abuse and exploitation.     

Any appointment will be subject to the receipt of satisfactory references and enhanced DBS check.  

Interview: Please note due to current circumstances related to the Coronavirus outbreak, the recruitment selection process may involve video conferencing interview methods. 

Closing date for applications: Sunday 12th of September at midnight. Early successful applicants may be interviewed before the closing date.  

Provisional interview date: TBC
