    Are you an experienced youth worker with a passion for enabling young people to be central to the life of their community? Do you have the skills to navigate organisational structures and barriers to integration, through relationship-building and advocacy? If so, you could take a leading role in setting the direction of our youth integration strategy.

    You will have experience of working collaboratively with mixed-age teams to implement young people's vision for peer-led events. With excellent listening skills and judgements, you will ensure this team feels heard and valued, while balancing this with organisational needs. The successful candidate will support these teams to develop and nurture the faith and well-being of young people as part of a national community.

    The successful candidate will be collaborative and able to work with minimal administrative support. You will lead on the project management and administration of events for young people. This will require excellent communication, IT and data skills, along with a keen attention to detail. You will be able to work within the structures of the organisation and an established developmental framework, balanced with the insight needed to develop and review this following consultation with colleagues and volunteers.

    Working in our Integration Team, part of the Quaker Church Affairs department, you will also link to the work of our Youth, Children and Families Team (based in the Quaker Life department), including the delivery of online youth groups.

    Our work with young Quakers plays an important part in the life of the organisation. We work with around 100 young people each year, and work intensively with a smaller planning group that designs and delivers our annual event for 15–18-year-olds. This event is an important link to one of our key governance structures and is delivered by a mixed-age team of young people supported by adult volunteers.

    Since the pandemic, how we deliver our wider work has changed and developed. This gives us an opportunity to reimagine how we engage with young Quakers. Our vision is to widen the integration of the many, not the few, into the life of our faith community. We invite you to join us on this journey.

    The post involves some evening and residential weekend work and is subject to an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check, including the children's barred list.
