The recruitment drive will take place from 10am until noon at the Les Ozouets campus.

Youth Commission head of operations Martin Bridle said everyone was welcome.

‘There are lots of exciting opportunities for people who want to make a difference to the lives of children and young people,’ he said.

‘If you are looking for something that has variety, it is something you can shape into an exciting career.’

Youth work is varied, with chances to work in a range of environments including one-to-one sessions, working at youth clubs and activities, and helping with sports such as kayaking and climbing.

‘If you’re not looking for a 9am to 5pm desk job, but are looking for something fulfilling, then we have opportunities for you,’ Mr Bridle said.

‘Everyone is welcome to come in for a chat and a coffee.’

YC volunteer coordinator Emma Cusack said she had been working for the YC for eight years and has thoroughly enjoyed her time there.

‘I couldn’t wish for a better place to work.

‘Not only do I feel like I am making a difference to children, young people and their families on a daily basis, I also get to meet amazing volunteers and my role fits perfectly with running around after my young son.’

YC sunflower support worker Mair Skillett said: ‘One of the most special aspects of being a youth worker to me is building trusting relationships with young people and watching their confidence grow.’
