Salford Foundation is seeking an experienced Project Co-ordinator to deliver a range of interventions to young people involved in youth violence and also young people identified as being at risk of crime and anti-social behaviour. A mentoring, coaching and key-working approach will underpin the project. Beneficiaries will have multiple issues that increase their risk of becoming involved in crime and many will have a history of non-engagement with services. The successful candidate will, therefore, need to have exceptional engagement skills.

The project has an emphasis on preventing youth violence and will be delivered in partnership with public sector services. The successful candidate will work as part of a multi-agency team in Salford to ensure project outcomes and outputs are met. This includes systems and processes for referrals; participant recruitment and delivering a range of interventions that lead to sustainable outcomes; desistance from crime and increased resilience. The Project Co-ordinator will be responsible for project delivery, as well as keeping stringent records that allow the impact of the project to be assessed. The successful post holder will have excellent communication skills and a demonstrable passion for supporting young people.
