Urban Pursuit is seeking a Senior Adventure Youth Worker who will bring energy and inspiration to our talented and dedicated team. Urban Pursuit's significant impact on educational exclusion is achieved in Bristol, where we began in 2011, and in Cardiff which we established in 2021. Our highly successful alternative education provision is varied, engaging and impactful, offering a programme of personal and social development across each city and its neighbouring local authorities.

Our programmes empower young people to make significant personal progress, to gain hope, and to be inspired to journey towards a positive future. At the heart of our ethos is a spirit of adventure and responsible risk-taking. We use adrenaline sports and adventure activities to deliver personal and social development programmes that lead to lasting change in the lives of many young people.

As a Senior Adventure Youth Worker you will play an important part within the team of Adventure Youth Workers. You will invest in the development of your colleagues in the form of things such as mentoring, as well as supporting the Education Lead in the development of resources and training.

In this role you will take the lead whilst running the sessions as part of the Urban Pursuit education programme. You will get alongside our young people in order to support them reaching their full potential, working in a pair to support a group of up to six young people each day as part of a varied activity curriculum. You will also have the opportunity to work with other young people on a one-to-one basis on a more flexible programme.
