Cyrenians Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution (SCCR) is a national resource promoting and supporting best practice in family conflict resolution and early intervention. Family relationship breakdown is one of the biggest causes of youth homelessness. Therefore, the service focuses on young people and families experiencing conflict which is affecting both their relationships and their lives.

This is a new role to lead on the development of our children and youth engagement work. The post holder will link with schools and youth agencies to extend the reach of the service; as well as run workshops with children and young people to allow their views to feed into and shape our early intervention strategy.

We are looking for a committed and self-motivated professional with experience in conflict resolution, research, psychology and creative practices to take on this exciting role within SCCR. You will have a proven track record of working with children and/or young people, as well as workshop delivery. You should also be able to work under your own initiative, as well as in a small team environment; and demonstrate our values of compassion, respect, integrity and innovation in the work that you do.
