1 X Senior Project Officer (male)

The Osmani Trust is a voluntary youth organisation and a registered charity based in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. In April 2009, Brick Lane Youth Development Association (BLYDA) and Elite Youth merged to become one of the leading 3rd sector organisations in the Borough delivering a wide and unique range of services to young people and the community.

In line with this growth, Shaathi Mentoring Project is seeking to recruit a Male Senior Project Officer to deliver mentoring provisions to young offenders. Shaathi Mentoring Project works with young people aged 10 – 21 who are from BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) communities and is one of the nationally accredited mentoring provisions operating in the borough.

We are seeking to recruit a dynamic and experienced individual to work with children, young people and young adults who come from challenging backgrounds with complex and multiple interlocking needs. The individual will need to have experience of working with, supporting and influencing positive change and growth to an extremely challenging client group.

You will have the ability to work well under pressure, meet tight deadlines and targets within the agreed time and budget. You will need to understand the challenges faced by vulnerable children, young people and adults in inner city areas and have the ability to provide the necessary support to help address the challenges and barriers faced by young offenders or ex-offenders.
