Aasha Senior Project Officer

Hours: 37.5 hours per week
Salary: £20k – £23k (depending on qualification and experience)
Duration: 3 month probation, until the end of March 2013

The Aasha Gang Mediation Project (a project of Osmani Trust) has been working with young people influenced by gang culture for the last decade. It is the pioneering project in Tower Hamlets that has been tackling the issue of gangs in our
community. In order to strengthen its provisions in the Borough, we are seeking to recruit an individual who will be able to work with challenging groups of young people by designing and delivering effective interventions in a peer work setting. The post will involve direct contact with young people, regular outreach sessions every week, supporting young people in organising activities, events and more. If you have experience of handling youth who have ‘serious attitude’, are from a disadvantaged background, display challenging behaviour and subscribe to ‘thug life’ mentality, then we are keen to hear from you. The ideal post holder will have the ability to work well under pressure, meet tight deadlines and
targets within the agreed time and budget.

You will need to have considerable experience of working in a youth work setting in accordance with the core values of youth work. For an informal chat or if you would like an application pack contact Muhinur Choudhury on 020 7247 8080 or email Muhinur.choudhury@osmanitrust.org The successful candidate would be subject to an enhanced CRB check and satisfactory reference checks.

Closing date for completed applications: 12pm Monday 1st July 2012
Interviews will take place on or after: Wednesday 2nd July 2012.
