An Open Evening for a Targeted Support Worker at The Albion Foundation

The Albion Foundation (registered Charity 1081948) is an established and successful provider of sport, education and disability programmes. The Albion Foundation uses the power of football to make a difference, raise aspirations, grow their people and participants and connect West Bromwich Albion Football Club to its communities.

The Charity prides itself on Inspiring to Achieve and delivering the highest quality of provision to show that “Albion cares”. The Education and Engagement Team aim to engage young people to improve attainment, change behaviour, increase attendance, raise self-esteem and boost confidence. The charity works with a range of schools and partners.

The Albion Foundation has recently applied for funding, through the Premier League and Children in Need, to offer a targeted programme for 8 – 14 year olds in the Sandwell area. The targeted work, in partnership with West Midlands Police, will accept referrals for young people who are at risk of being involved in knife crime and gangs.

This role is dedicated to those who want to inspire a young person for the better. In this modern time, young people go through so much and often with little guidance. Without knowing the reason it is easy apportion blame. If you have a passion for working with young people and would like to inspire them to make a difference, this role could be for you.

The right candidate will need to be confident and have a strong approach when handling challenging situations. You should have experience of youth work, gang violence, social and emotional behaviour and sexual exploitation. You will be required to demonstrate a clear understanding of safeguarding.

The ideal candidate will know how to resolve or de-escalate a situation in a correct and efficient manner. You will be resilient with a strong work ethic.

You must have a good understanding of social, emotional and mental health difficulties and know how to implement education and care to young people with this need. You will need to have a positive approach as well as being patient with good behaviour management. It is desirable to have mentoring/support work experience.

The majority of the role will require you to work directly with referred clients on a 1:1 basis. You will develop and support relationships with partner agencies and third sector organisations for effective case communication and management. The outcome data will be collated, monitored, SMART, and inputted in line with organisational processes and procedures.

The Albion Foundation will know the outcome of the funding bid at the end of January 2020. The official advert for the Targeted Support Worker will be released immediately after this time. The salary will be circa 20,000 – £25,000 for a 12 month Fixed Term Contract.

The Foundation will be holding an open evening on Tuesday 10th December, from 6 pm, at The Albion Foundation (Education Site), 8 Brasshouse Lane, Smethwick (opposite Galton Valley Primary School).  If you would like to register your interest for the event please email anna.pincher@albionfoundation.co.uk
