Vulnerable children in the UK need your help

Wherever you work in the Action for Children family, you'll be helping to change the lives of the most vulnerable children in the UK.

Last year, we helped more than 670,000 children and families across the UK. From direct work in communities to national campaigning, we are focused on making sure every child has a safe and happy childhood, and the foundations they need to thrive.

 

Why Action for Children?

Working here is more than a job. Everyone in the Action for Children family is passionate about protecting and supporting children. It's the sense of purpose that drives us every single day. Because we know that, when we work together, we can make a huge difference to bring lasting improvements to vulnerable children's lives.

 

A bit about the role

Our unique service based in Mold offers support for individuals aged between 11 and 18 years old. We support young people at risk of criminal exploitation and serious violence by providing targeted intensive 1:1 support, family support, peer mentoring and group work to divert young people away from the harms caused by these issues.

To be successful in this role, you will need to have a keen eye for detail, be able to read between the lines and be sensitive to the needs of the young people we work with. As a Young Persons Practitioner, you'll work in a small but dynamic team, supporting the current practitioners and the young people they work with, working discreetly and building trust at their pace.  

Due to the role requiring travel across Flintshire, a driving license and access to own insured vehicle is required. 

How you'll help to create brighter futures

  • Providing a first class service to young people based on an assessment of need
  • Delivering specialist interventions with children, young people or families on a 1:1/2:1 basis, group or community setting.
  • Supporting the team to transport young people when needed.
  • Providing lead case/care planning management, including undertaking assessing, reviewing and managing risks
  • Representing the service in community organisations, partner agencies and other external agencies.
  • Retaining accurate records, using various IT systems to capture information and to produce written reports and present these as necessary.
  • Acting as a young person advocate in your work. 

Let's talk about you

The attached job description outlines all the requirements for our Young Persons Practitioner role, however some of our must haves are:

  • Demonstrable experience working in a multi-agency social care or youth work setting
  • A keen interest in well-being and mental health support strategies for young people
  • Experience of working with young people with complex support needs, and ideally those within the youth justice system 
  • A positive and non-judgemental attitude to young people in conflict with the law
  • Intermediate IT literacy with the ability to provide detailed reports through IT use
  • Excellent communication skills, adapting your delivery to each individual
  • Safeguarding knowledge and able to work confidentially with a sensitive approach

There are five sections to complete: Personal Details, CV, Supporting Statement & Information, Equality & Diversity, Submission & Declaration.

Talent Pool

We know talent when we see it. But sometimes we find the right person but not for the right job. We'd love to keep your details for when the right job comes up. Let us know if you'd rather we didn't.

Contact: Scott Jones on 01923 361 778 or via email at scott.jones@actionforchildren.org.uk 

At Action for Children, we're dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace by actively encouraging applications from Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic candidates and people with disabilities, as they are under-represented within Action for Children. We want to take deliberate and meaningful action to ensure fair opportunity to all groups in our communities and for AFC.  

Don't meet every single requirement? If you're excited about this role but your experience doesn't align perfectly with the job description, we'd love you to apply anyway. You might just be the perfect person for this role, or another role within the Action for Children family.
