Applications are invited for the following:

Youth Employability Support Workers (Clonmel)
(2 days p/w, 2 posts available)

Based between our 2 Youth Centres in the heart of the Wilderness and Elm Park communities in Clonmel, the 2 Youth Employability Support Workers will join our Integrated Youth Service Team, working together to deliver a Targeted Youth Employability Support Initiative in 2022. Funded through DCEDIY and Tipperary ETB, the target group of the TYESI is young people aged 17-24 years who are not in education, training or employment and who may have other barriers to overcome. The aim of the Initiative is to work with them to co-design an innovative youth work project through which they will develop supportive relationships and networks, build their core skills and identify and pursue pathways to employability and employment, towards a better future.

Key responsibilities of the posts will include:

  • Identification and recruitment of participants, needs assessment
  • Co-design, facilitation and evaluation of the Initiative, in line with established model of work and funded application
  • Building strong relationships with young people and a range of local collaborators and stakeholders who can assist with their learning and progression
  • Facilitating the active participation and leadership of the young people
  • Supporting the young people’s reconnection and sustained engagement with education, training or work

Ideal candidates for these posts should demonstrate flexibility, motivation and initiative, have excellent interpersonal, organisational, communication, facilitation and teamwork skills, be able to engage young people on a 1:1 and group basis and build strong multi-agency linkages and collaboration. They must have at least 1 year’s (ideally 2 years’) professional experience of working directly with young people and a recognised qualification in Youth and Community Work or related discipline.
