Are you enthusiastic about making a difference in young people’s lives?

Helm’s long-term vision is a Scotland where all young people dare to dream and can make those dreams a reality. Our more immediate mission is to ensure that young people in Scotland have access to the education and training that supports them to learn. Our strategy for achieving this focuses on three key activities, which we believe, will make education, training and employment accessible and achievable for all:

  • Give Young People a Voice
  • Remove Barriers to Learning and Employment
  • Develop Education, Training and Employment Services

Due to expanding our team, we have an exciting opportunity for a dynamic individual to support young people in Dundee with their health and well being. The successful candidate will have the experience in supporting young people in groups and through one to ones.

Key responsibilities in the role include:

  • Provide art therapy to young people on a needs led basis within a flexible framework and varied settings, including one to ones and issue based group work.
  • Promote the development of resilience in young people.
  • Create an inclusive environment where the voices of young people are heard and respected
  • Ensure Helm provides quality services to young people and drive continuous improvement across the organisation
  • Develop and establish positive relationships with voluntary and public sector partners and other local organisations

What do we give you in return? We provide you with a competitive salary, 35 days annual leave, health benefits, a pension plan, a generous range of benefits and job satisfaction with a real opportunity to make a difference every day.

We are committed to the safeguarding and welfare of all young people and use a thorough and rigorous recruitment and selection process including PVG Scheme checks to ensure this commitment is not compromised.
