Part time Youth Worker
Who we are
Working With Men (WWM) is a specialist charity supporting positive male activity, engagement and involvement. WWM has expertise in the challenges and solutions in working with boys and men who are socially or economically disadvantaged, marginalised or isolated.
Our interventions focus on the transitional times in life such as starting school, getting a job or becoming a parent; these are the times when men and boys are most likely to encounter challenges and therefore most likely to engage or seek help. Our aim is to significantly reduce the number of boys and men, particularly from socially excluded or disadvantaged backgrounds, who are unable to achieve their full potential to become productive and active members of society.
What we can offer you
- Pension scheme
- Child Care Voucher Scheme
- Cycle to Work Scheme
