Head of Youth Services

Join Knights Youth Centre and play a crucial leadership role in supporting local young people to live happy, safe and successful lives.

Knights Youth Centre is an independent Christian charity, which has been supporting the local area of Lambeth since 1936. We believe that each young person is unique, talented and beautiful. For many KYC is home. We want to ensure that each young person is equipped and confident to make the right choices and play a positive role in their community.

Building on our rich history of over 80 years, we are now entering an exciting new phase at KYC and are looking for someone who can develop this with us – someone who is enthusiastic and passionate about improving the life skills and chances of young people and providing a positive future for them.

At KYC you’ll be working alongside an experienced team of trustees and senior youth workers. We are well organised, creative and support our workers in what can sometimes be challenging, but very rewarding work.

We are therefore looking for someone who can share our vision and heart for our community and its young people. If this is you, apply!
