Julie Hetherington

Team Leader - Senior
Mental Health First Aider


I started work at CYZ in February 2017.

My main role here is as Gym Instructor in our amazing gym…I oversee the daily running of the gym which is open Monday-Friday 3.15pm-5pm for all young people age 12-18…In club time I work in gym or as Youth Worker delivering activities for all the young people and being there for them to chat to. I also work with Inclusion Club on a Saturday morning helping with any additional support that the young people need and Mencap on a Thursday where we run a 2 hour Gym session for them.

The whole team here are very committed to their roles and being part of that makes the job very enjoyable. Being part of CYZ and helping the Y/P IS a very rewarding experience which makes our job and CYZ the BEST PLACE TO WORK!

…and about her hobbies and childhood…

My main hobby is road biking which I do about 4 times a week I also enjoy going to the gym and walking my dogs. Being fetched up in a country side and living on a farm is my best childhood memory.
