(£5389.52 per annum / £11.81 per hour)

10 hours per week – Monday to Friday over the lunchtime period

(term time only)

Required April 2021, up until May half term

We are looking to appoint two Youth Workers to support the management of students outside at lunchtimes. These are temporary roles to assist with the staggered lunchtimes currently in place due to the pandemic.

The role will require the post holder to supervise the safety, and support the high behaviour expectations of the school, of a year group of 180 students at a time. The post holder will need to be able to manage the year group lining up at the beginning and end of lunchtime and be able to verbally address the whole year group to give instructions. They should also circulate with students and engage in informal mentoring where appropriate.

This temporary role would be particularly suitable for someone who is considering a career in education, for instance becoming a teacher. It will require an extremely uplifting, positive and encouraging approach. Previous youth mentoring work and/ or sports coaching would be particularly relevant experience for applicants to have.

Equal Opportunities
Waltham Forest is a diverse borough where diversity is valued and is integral to both, service delivery and employment of its staff. The Council is proud of its rich mix of communities and as the largest employer in the area, it works hard to respond to the changing needs of its population.

We use our statutory duties on race, gender and disability equality and best practice in respect of age, faith and sexual orientation to ensure equality of opportunity in the workplace.

The Council is committed to meeting its 4 equality objectives:

- Promoting equality of opportunity

- Opposing all forms of discrimination, intolerance and disadvantage

- Ensuring our workforce reflects the diverse communities of Waltham Forest at all levels.

- Providing fair, appropriate, accessible and excellent Services to all.

Respecting Diversity is a core Council value.

To support the above and reduce the risk of bias in its recruitment activities, the council is operating an anonymous shortlisting process, which hides personal information that can identify individuals until their application has been considered for shortlisting.

The council also operates a scheme whereby, for jobs graded up to and including scale SO2, internal candidates are considered first. This includes those candidates who self-identify as having a disability for the purposes of the Disability Confident scheme. For more information, please refer to our recruitment and selection policy
