Job Description

Why work for The Bridge? There are a hundred reasons.

Maybe you’ve known someone suffer without help, or try without success to make positive changes in order to move forward? Join us and you can help change lives.

Everyone at The Bridge has heaps of energy and positivity, and we are lucky to say we start every day knowing we can make a difference to local people. We are a small charity, but we’re also a close-knit family that’s organised, focussed and driven.

There are loads of great benefits to working for The Bridge, such as the extra holiday days or the flexible working. However, these benefits are not why you join in the first place... or why you stay. From day one you’ll receive all the training you need. Here, helping you develop your career and skills is a top priority. We value you, partly because it’s the right thing to do, but also because it really helps you achieve what you came to The Bridge for: changing other people’s lives for the better.

In your role as a YES Intensive Young Persons Support Worker you will be supporting young people aged between 15 and 24 to take steps towards training, education or employment by overcoming barriers which have prevented them from achieving their goals. Our holistic approach means that on this journey, you will provide the support necessary to help improve confidence, reduce anxiety and improve well-being in order to enable them to be in the best place to achieve a positive outcome.

You will gain experience of working in partnership with the Voluntary Sector and third sector organisations, in order to support and promote the best possible outcomes for our clients.

As a valued employee, you will receive day to day support during your time at The Bridge, but alongside this you will have regular supervisions with your line manager in order to ensure you are fully equipped to provide the high standard of support that your clients deserve.
