As the Youth Services Manager you will play a key role in developing Caring in Bristol’s youth-focused work. During the Covid-19 pandemic many of our services were suspended or significantly impacted. You will play a key role in developing our new youth initiatives as we move into the next phase of our youth work.

There are three key deliverables of our youth work which are currently at different stages of their development:

  • “Project Z” – Ongoing one-to-one floating support by specialist youth practitioners for 16-25 year olds, many of whom will be experiencing multiple disadvantage; a key objective is to build trusting relationships that can help to facilitate positive change.
  • “Snacks” – Recently launched: Light touch walk-in support for young people referred to us with specific needs around their housing and welfare. This element of our work allows staff and volunteers to provide short pieces of assistance that make a lasting impact.
  • “Z House” – Planned to open in early 2022: Overnight accommodation at a volunteer-run residential house converted into a specialist night shelter for young people aged 18-25 years with low/no support needs, who would otherwise be sleeping on the streets.

The role will work closely with our other operational managers to ensure that our volunteer management, data systems and performance monitoring are best practice.

The role will have line management responsibility for project staff including the Youth Practitioners.
