Amazing Futures East Sussex Project Coordinator

21 hours per week based in East Sussex

Salary: £26,470 pro rata (actual for 21 hours £15,882) NJC 29

Fixed term contract for one year but with likely extension

This is an exciting opportunity to set up a new project with a well-regarded charity. You will have experience of working with young people with additional needs and the development skills to set up and run the Amazing Futures East Sussex Project.

This is a pilot in East Sussex building on Amaze’s experience of running the Amazing Futures peer support project in Brighton and Hove. You will work to improve the confidence, aspirations and life skills of young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) aged 14-25 going through the transition to adulthood.

The project aims to harness the power of peer support to help young people with SEND move towards positive adult lives. Young people in similar situations can share experiences and those who are one stage further towards adulthood can offer support and be role models. There is an emphasis on fun and shared activities so youth work experience or similar will be an asset. Skills and social networks developed through the project can lead young people with SEND towards employment, volunteering and greater independence.

The deadline for applications is midday Monday 25 June. Interviews will be held on Wednesday 4 July in Brighton.
