We want to appoint a full-time (37.5 hours per week) Young Adult Worker for an exciting opportunity to further develop and deliver our service which has been designed around the needs of young adults with renal disease who attend specialist services at the Royal Free and University College London Hospitals.

The Young Adult Worker will contribute to the development of busy services for young adults attending specialist Nephrology and Nephro-Urology clinics. They will deliver targeted and individualised support to young adults (18–30 years) known to both adult renal services and those transitioning to our services from children’s Hospitals, predominantly Great Ormond's Street Hospital in London. As well as individual and group work, this post offers the opportunity to raise awareness within clinical and nursing teams of the issues young adults living with kidney disease face, to provide opportunities for young adults to offer feedback about the care and support they receive.

We are looking for a qualified youth worker (or equivalent) with appropriate qualifications and extensive experience of working with young adults, ideally with those with medical issues and long term conditions. Excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to motivate and influence others are essential as well as an understanding of the health and social issues faced by young adults with chronic illness.

Unfortunately we will not be able to take telephone enquiries but shortlisted candidates will have the opportunity to find out more and come for an informal visit prior to interview.
