The projects led by Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council and covering the 10 local authorities within the Cardiff Capital Region City Deal, aims to provide support for young people aged 11 – 24 years old who have been identified as facing multiple and complex issues that act as barriers to them engaging with their chosen educational, training or employment pathway.

The post may involve a maximum of 4 evenings per week and the occasional weekend work.  It is essential for the post holder to possess a full valid driving license.
