Youth Worker Vacancy 

Position:          Church & Community Youth Worker
Organisation: Crediton Methodist Church, Devon EX17 3AW
Salary:             JNC Payscale 10 – 12, from £21,512 to £23,580 per annum
                    (dependent on qualifications/experience)
 
If you love working as a church youth leader, but also love community youth work, why choose? This new role combines exciting opportunities in both these fields.
 
Over the past six years, the Crediton Methodist Church Youth Work Project has established a full programme of youth activities, including an open access youth café open 3 times weekly, the offer of regular mentoring with individuals, a health drop-in and contribution to PSHE with the local academy, detached work twice weekly in Crediton, and a faith based spiritual programme with the young people who worship with us.  
 
We are now looking to create a new two-year programme which will maintain and enhance our current delivery and undertake a research project to develop a new emotional wellbeing and resilience programme for young people in Crediton. 
 
Crediton is a small, friendly market town in beautiful, rural mid Devon, with Dartmoor close by, yet within easy reach of Exeter, the regional capital.
 
So, we’re looking for someone who has excellent time management, as this will be a demanding role! But more importantly, we need someone who is passionate about helping young people to explore who they are and to reach their full potential, both within a Christian context, and within a wider community setting.
 
You’ll need to be creative and a self-starter, although we’re planning to be as supportive as we possibly can be to make your role a success. There is already a group of young leaders, who have come through the project, a dedicated youth work management group, sessional workers and our minister, so we won’t be expecting you to achieve success all by yourself!
 
If you’d like to know more, please visit www.creditonmethodist.org.uk or phone Ann Varker on 01363 777308 to request more details or for an application form.
 
Completed forms should be submitted by noon on the 1st March 2020 and we hope to interview on Friday 13th March 2020. 
 
There is an occupational requirement that the role holder is a Christian in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.
