Located between the two thriving cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Knowsley is well located, fantastically connected and still beautifully green.  Knowsley is the current Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture; 2022 is Knowsley’s year and it promises to be a special one!

The team: This is an exciting opportunity to be part of Knowsley’s newly established Prevention Service. The team sits under the direction of the Youth Offending Service but is very much a partnership approach to tackling anti-social behaviour, crime and exploitation.  We would like to hear from you if you are creative, resourceful, supportive, and have a genuine desire to positively shape the futures of children and communities.

The service will support vulnerable children, some who have been impacted by adverse childhood experiences, those who are most excluded, so above all, you will need to have the drive, passion, and commitment to making a difference for these children.

The role:

This is an exciting role which will enable you to flex your ability to engage community partners and manage complex cases. You will develop sound community knowledge being able to work with those who are experiencing ASB in their local communities and those who may be involved in ASB, crime or being those at risk of exploitation.

This role will require you to be creative and innovative in developing and delivering community projects to support positive outcomes for children, families and communities in Knowsley. 

In return you will get great benefits; we are committed to flexible working to improve productivity and wellbeing. You will receive regular supervision, support, and benefit from opportunities for continuous professional development.
