Who we are:

Belfast YMCA has been realising its mission to Belfast since 1850, serving individuals and communities regardless of race, gender, creed, age or political affiliation, providing care and development in body, mind and spirit.  It is part of the worldwide YMCA Movement and is the largest and the oldest charity working with young people in the world.

Within that movement, we operate as a local charity from our South Belfast Stranmillis base serving the greater Belfast area.

What we do:

We provide a range of on-site childcare facilities including a nursery unit, and we deliver a range of Youth Programmes that include schools outreach services that address issues of stereotyping, sectarianism and migration, and provide coaching and mentoring for our young people.

We help connect our youth with the political structures at Stormont and Westminster, and run volunteering projects as well as the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

What we’re looking for:

We are driven by our Christian ethos and are seeking some-one who shares our passion to lead our professional staff team of 30 and around 25 volunteers to deliver a range of services and interventions that make meaningful, positive change to the community.

A skilled communicator, you will bring to the position your leadership experience and skills, and your knowledge of issues affecting children and young people in Northern Ireland.
