About Hackney Marsh Partnership

Hackney Marsh Partnership works to alleviate poverty and reduce isolation in Hackney, to enable individuals and communities to flourish through youth programmes, community activities and adult training and employability programmes.

Hackney Marsh Partnership works to enable adults, children and young people to find their own ways through problems associated with poverty, prejudice and powerlessness. While we acknowledge the value of short-term projects in doing this, we recognise the need to work with local people to build up and sustain local services, resources and amenities in the long term.

  • With guidance from senior youth workers, they will plan, prepare, facilitate, evaluate, set up and clear away activities and workshops.
  • With other staff, they will escort young people on trips and outings.
  • The young person will be expected to encourage other young people to take control of the decision-making processes and to become involved in a youth steering group.

About You

  • Someone who is willing to learn, not afraid of hard work and looking to build a long term career working with young people.
