We are pleased to announce that due to an expansion in our charity’s delivery in-line with our 2022-25 Strategic Priorities, Young Bristol are recruiting for a number of new and pivotal roles. This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of a Bristol based, well-respected, growing and dynamic charity with a long and proud history.

About Young Bristol 

Young Bristol is a youth-driven charity that works to offer a choice of opportunities and experiences for all young people. Founded in 1928, Young Bristol has evolved into one of Bristol’s leading youth charities, providing critical out-of-school services for young people of 8 – 25 years in communities across the city.

Today we are recognised as Bristol’s leading provider of community-based youth services, through our community youth club network based in some of Bristol’s most challenging communities, and a valued provider of outdoor activities, mobile youth services, creative arts, outdoor employment, and informal educational programmes for young people.

As an organisation, our mission is to positively and sustainably impact the lives of young people. Here at Young Bristol, we apply that ethos to our small but dedicated team, many of who have been part of a Young Bristol programme themselves. We recognise that people with different backgrounds, skills, attitudes and experience bring fresh ideas and perceptions, making our programmes more relevant and approachable, particularly so all of Bristol’s young people feel represented within our organisation.
