Job Description

Thank you for considering a Youth Intervention Practitioner role with Redthread. We are a team of compassionate, collaborative and courageous professionals, committed to empowering young people to change their lives.  This clip from BBC News will give you a taster of what we do every day.

Due to internal progression, we are currently advertising for two roles, part of our London Youth Violence Intervention Programme (YVIP) at either Homerton Hospital (Hackney) or St Mary’s Hospital (Paddington). As a Youth Intervention Practitioner based in one of the A&E departments, you will support young people who are experiencing trauma or tragedy and their families. You’ll be part of a team that is fully embedded in the hospital and that is highly valued by clinicians and community partners alike.

 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.

During the Covid-19 outbreak, our teams are still working from the hospitals as we are classed as essential workers. You will need to do shifts at the hospital, as well as working some days from home, depending on the needs of the team and the service.

 In return, the successful candidate will receive a competitive salary, a supportive and flexible working environment, excellent staff training and development package and access to a range of employee benefits including; access to enhanced employee assistance programme services, employer pension scheme contribution, enhanced annual leave and family leave entitlements and more.

Please go to our website where you will find a job description with a person specification including details of the terms and conditions of the post. Please read through the person specification carefully as we will be shortlisting applications using these criteria. https://www.redthread.org.uk/join-the-team/

Please note: We are recruiting for two positions at different hospital sites. During the application process, you will be asked for your site preference.

We will accept applications until 9 am on Monday 9th August 2021.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an online panel discussion with some of our Youth Ambassadors and team. This will take place on Thursday 12th August.

We would like this role to start as soon as possible. We will provide comprehensive training and induction.
