We have been at the heart of public service delivery for over 200 years, designing and delivering services that transform disadvantaged lives and build stronger communities.

Join Catch22 as a Project Worker and you could soon be integral to the development and delivery of a street conflict programme in Wolverhampton

Funded by the Police Crime commissioner, the project forms part of the Dawes Gangs Unit with projects in Wolverhampton and Bristol. The service will offer a range of interventions, including universal education, early intervention for those at risk of involvement in street conflict and diversion for those on the periphery, through to exit programmes for those deeply entrenched.

 

As a Project Worker, you will:

Plan and lead on the delivery of activities and interventions that will deter young people from involvement in street conflict related activities.

Work across the whole spectrum of the project’s delivery, hold a case of referrals and support young people via a range of interventions, including 1-2-1 support and group work.

Engage and build positive relationships with the young people, conduct individual assessments and develop action plans.

Carry out outreach and detached work to engage young people in schools and the local community.

Make sure all elements of the programme are targeted appropriately.

Support the Service Manager in maintaining effective links with local agencies and community groups and help develop new initiatives.

 

As a Project Worker you will need:

Experience of working in a high risk client group presenting violent or challenging behaviour and planning, leading, delivering and evaluating activities and interventions for young people.

An understanding of the issues facing socially excluded young people or those at risk from disengaging from mainstream activities and the issue of gang violence/territorialism.

A track record of delivering individual and group work, managing risk and ensuring the safety of staff and clients in a volatile setting.

A proven ability to engage young people, parents and the community and work with a range of partners to achieve agreed outcomes.

A positive approach, excellent organisational and communication skills, lots of tact and diplomacy when dealing with sensitive issues and a willingness to work outside core hours.
