* be financially numerate, with reasonable expertise in IT and an understanding of safeguarding regulations;

West Glasgow New Church

Youth Worker (Youth & Community)

We believe that young people matter both within West Glasgow New Church (WGNC) and within the wider communities where we serve God. In particular, we believe that it is vital that the good news of Jesus Christ is presented and explained to young people at this stage of life. We are, therefore, looking for a Youth Worker who will work with and develop our existing vision for an integrated youth work of both church and community young people and to that end will focus on providing encouragement and support to our church young people in reaching out to the communities within which they belong (age range 12-20). In this respect outreach is viewed as being one of the primary objectives of the Youth Worker role. WGNC meets on Sundays in Cleveden Secondary School, Cleveden Road, in Glasgow’s West End and has a small building in Whiteinch Glasgow where the church office is located and where other meetings and activities take place. The successful candidate will:

* be a committed and practicing Christian with a vibrant and consistent faith in Jesus Christ;

*have a passion to invest in young people by helping them to become disciples of

Jesus Christ;

*have significant experience of working with relevant age group in a Christian context;

*have training and/or experience in Biblical theological application;

*have excellent leadership, communication and organisational skills;
 
This is a full-time post (35 hours per week), and is for 18 months in the first instance. Salary will be between £20-£24k per annum dependent on experience. Subject to disclosure under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007, the successful applicant would be appointed by the early October.
