Youth Intervention Practitioner, Nottingham. c. £22,700 – £26,700pa

Redthread works with vulnerable young people in crisis. Whether they have been the victim of a stabbing, are seeking support for anxiety, have suffered a sexual assault, or want to find a new home beyond the reach of a gang, we support them to overcome the challenges they face through our dynamic youth work programmes.

Our Youth Violence Intervention Programme at Queen’s Medical Centre launched in February 2018, and was the first YVIP service outside of London. Since then, the team have become fully embedded in the hospital and are highly valued by clinicians and community partners alike.

As a Youth Intervention Practitioner based in the A&E department of QMC, you will support young people who are experiencing trauma or tragedy and their families. To do this well you need to be a people person; passionate about supporting young people, and excited at the prospect of working in a fast-paced and exceptionally busy environment. You’ll need a proven ability to work with high risk, vulnerable young people and an understanding of the impact intense, short term work can have.

You must be a strong communicator: as comfortable building a relationship with a young person as you are liaising with our clinical colleagues. You’ll be keen to keep learning, seizing training opportunities at Redthread and continuously reflecting upon and improving your practice.
