Ferrywell Youth Project (31 – 33 Pennywell Road, EH4 4PJ)

YOUTH WORKER – FULL TIME

(Salary £25,500 - £28,000 dependent on experience, plus pension scheme)

Got stoned. Stole a motor. Stormed out of the house. Got in a fight. Got pregnant. Struggling with school, finding it hard to make friends, feeling alone, feeling overwhelmed…all of these are potentially life-changing moments and periods.

FYP want to see young people valued and supported through these times. We want to see our young people living lives characterised by positive, healthy and responsible choices.

FYP grew out of years of SU Scotland work in the Pilton, Muirhouse and Drylaw area of Edinburgh. We are a project rooted in Christian faith and values. We want to see our young people thrive and have a significant impact on their community, celebrating with them the progress that is made.

In the last three years we have gone from no paid staff to one full-time and two part-time workers. We currently have 28 wonderful volunteers. We have also just obtained our first premises at the heart of our community.

If you are a Christian with school and/or community based experience working with young people and are enthusiastic, pastorally sensitive, have good communication skills and are able to work well within a team and with other organisations and agencies, please contact us for more information: info@ferrywell.org.uk or 07950016429. An information pack is available on request. This is a 3 year fixed term post.

It is also an Occupational Requirement (Equality Act – part 1, schedule 9), that the post holder is a committed Christian. Appointment will be subject to a satisfactory PVG Scheme Disclosure.
