CHERRY ORCHARD EQUINE CENTRE COMPANY LIMITED BY GUARANTEE

We are inviting applications from suitably qualified / experienced professionals to join our Youth Diversion Project (CODY) funded by the Department of Justice.

We currently have two vacancies to fill and from this campaign we may create a panel to fill any further vacancies that may arise within the next 12 months.

Cherry Orchard Equine Centre CLG. operates a number of services supporting young people and their families living in Cherry Orchard Dublin 10. We also operate a community equestrian centre providing a range of riding and therapeutic programmes.

Due to the recent expansion of our Youth Diversion Project, we wish to fill two new roles. These roles will be based out of our Blue Door service located in Cherry Orchard Crescent.

The priority for this new team of two will be to identify vulnerable young people and families in the community who are experiencing or engaging in harmful or intimidating behaviours. The team will seek to target both families impacted by these behaviours and people engaging in harmful behaviour using trauma-informed principles to engage with and support relevant identified persons.

The team will work closely with colleagues across all our services in an integrated way including our youth services, youth diversion project, equestrian centre, community training centre and Blue Door.

The team will also work closely with the Cherry Orchard Response Group* which is coordinated by our Blue Door project.

For more information on this role please email jobs@cherryorchard.ie and we will respond promptly.

Please see the outline job descriptions for more details.

Deadline for completed applications is Monday 6th February 2023 at 5pm.
