The successful candidate will be working with children and young people with a range of needs/ issues including family breakdown, substance misuse, mental health, domestic violence, sexual abuse, neglect, peer pressure, bullying and those experiencing/ at risk of CSE.

* They are looking for someone who is persistent and resilient and who is able to work flexibly in order to best engage the young person
