Discover the dynamic and diverse Streets of Growth team, comprised of specialist practitioners from various disciplines. Our uniqueness is characterised by our dedication and unwavering passion to reduce harm and positively transform the lives of every young person we engage with. Our commitment is resolute, and we persistently work towards our vision of ensuring no young person is left behind or living in harm.

Why Join Streets of Growth 

When you join Streets of Growth you will be part of an innovative, impactful, international movement working with partners in London, Belfast, and across the USA to end the cycle of urban violence, poverty, discrimination and inequality experienced by underserved young communities. Through your role at Streets of Growth, you will make a direct and significant impact on nurturing safer, healthier lifestyles for young communities in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Streets of Growth seriously values open, honest and accountable high performing practitioners and we proactively invest in each staff member to develop a specific skills set, mental agility, emotional resilience and professional competencies and expertise in the field of youth and young adult development.  All frontline staff receive our excellent in-house award-winning training,

 

Alongside comprehensive training, you will receive a structured support and supervision package including: 

  • Monthly 1:1 supervision

  • Monthly informed reflective practice sessions

  • Annual training budget to spend on external training in psychological methods of practice

  • A structured progression pathway that provides opportunities to further progress and grow in your career with us

What it requires and the qualities
we seek in our employees 

Our three decades of success are rooted in unwavering professional pride and service. Joining us will be one of the most challenging, yet profoundly meaningful career opportunities you will encounter. As an innovative and fast-paced organisation, you will need abundant creative stamina and emotional resilience.

 

Those who assume this work is simply about hanging out with or challenging and changing young people, without embracing the challenges to their own personal and professional growth quickly find themselves falling short. You will need to ask yourself, "What am I prepared to do in my act of service to truly and consistently meet the needs of the young clients?" If you envision fitting your role neatly into a conventional 9-5 Monday-Friday framework, then our organisation, the young adult clients we serve, and the contexts we engage in, will not align with your expectations. 

 

However, if they really do, and you are someone who can push beyond your comfort zone, continually seek challenges, and aspire to be part of a pioneering team and international movement aiming to disrupt the cycle of urban violence, poverty, discrimination, and inequality experienced by inner-city young adults - we invite you to reach out and contact us at careers@streetsofgrowth.org

Employee Benefits

25 days holiday plus bank holidays

Employee Assistance Scheme, which provides free, 24/7 confidential helpline services

Up to 8% Employer pension contribution

Bespoke annual training budget to spend on external training for professional development

Alan

“I started at Streets of Growth 5 years ago as a trainee Youth Intervention Coach.
I began my career here learning about the borough and specifically the poverty and socioeconomic issues facing underserved young people. As I progressed into delivering
frontline intervention work I began to see a pattern of criminal exploitation and the gaps
in the system for effectively addressing young people being exploited. I am now an Applied Researcher at Streets of Growth and currently doing a PhD in Criminal Exploitation
and Modern Slavery Victimhood.”
