A significant part of my role is helping churches with the appointment of youth, children and family workers (or any combination of those). A few years ago I wrote a piece on the elements than could contribute to a role not flourishing … this has been one of the most used items on the blog …. so I’ve taken the chance to tweak it a little and turn it into a pdf.

Whilst I’m putting up useful resources for employment then I also want to flag up the excellent resources called “Just Employment” by the Church Urban Fund.
2013 pdf employment guide is here but check the website to see if there is more up to date information
Sage advice will also be found in this book written by one of the two Youth Workers called Nick Shepherd (In this case the one with the pipe, not the PhD)
