Vacancy: Holiday Club Youth Workers

During the school holidays, we run our successful Holiday Clubs. We are currently looking for youth workers for these sessions which take place during the day time. These vacancies have arisen due to a mixture of factors including the need to grow our team to respond to the increasing number of young people needing our support.

We recognise that the strength of CYZ (and the OnSide network of Youth Zones) is the diversity of our people, and we are actively promoting and advancing diversity and inclusion within our team. It is important to us that we achieve a culture where everyone can be themselves and thrive.


Various hours are available for this position
