Full time (37 hours per week) based in Newton Abbot
Fixed term 12-month contract (with intent to secure longer term funding)

Young Devon is excited to be starting a new hospital mentoring service and we want to recruit someone who shares our excitement!

This role will lead the implementation, delivery and evaluation of a new wellbeing ‘in-reach’ service, providing clear leadership to our workforce and partnerships, ensuring they are supported to deliver the highest standard of service to Children, Young People and Families. We aim to provide young person led support through quality youth work interventions ensuring that young people can set their own goals, leave hospital and manage in the community to avoid readmission.

Do you have resilience, creativity and the personal qualities to support a team to build and sustain quality relationships with young people to meet their personal goals?

Are you committed to improving the emotional health, wellbeing and resilience of young people?

This role gives you the opportunity to lead a team of mental health youth workers engage and work alongside young people and their families.

You will have the skills to build relationships of trust and understanding, using a person-centred approach, whilst responding to a young person’s needs through a trauma-informed lens. Supporting them to make decisions, have their voice heard to build their own plan and longer-term strategies to prevent going into acute hospital wards.

If you think you have what it takes then we would love to hear from you. We welcome applications from those with lived experience who have transferrable skills.
