Are you looking for an exciting new challenge?

We are looking for an experienced professional to support young people in response to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 through coaching and other interventions. You will need experience of working directly with young people, have a relevant qualification or experience and an understanding of the mental health issues facing young people. You will provide wellbeing support for those experiencing anxiety, depression and stress and where necessary triage them to other appropriate services. You will run drop-in sessions for young people, facilitate resilience workshops for carers and support our mindfulness practitioner to deliver interventions where needed.

Due to current Government restrictions there will be times where you are required to adapt to the changing situation and find innovative ways of working with young people.

This will be a home-based role but will cover a wider geographical area across West and North Norfolk. The work will be carried out within the service location and in the community; the ability to travel is essential.

The Matthew Project is a value driven charity working across East Anglia giving help and hope through programmes with adults, young people and communities affected by drugs and alcohol. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, of any faith or none.
