- To participate fully in strategic and operational planning, development and delivery of day-to-day services.

- To be responsible for the direct provision of practical, personal/emotional, social and intellectual support to young people.

- To assess young people’s skills and abilities and to work in a person centred way to produce support plans, based on need (these being regularly reviewed)

- To collaborate with partner organisations to deliver pre apprenticeship courses which meet the needs of the young people.

- To coordinate the refurbishment of properties, for use within the Future Builders project, including the coordination of sub-contractors.

- To approach all aspects of the project in a psychologically and trauma informed manner, adopting a ‘whatever it takes’ attitude.

- To participate fully in regular reviews of the services provided and work with the Manager to enhance existing services and develop new initiatives.
