VIY combines volunteering and DIY by challenging young people aged 14-24 to learn trade and building skills, on the job, by helping to refurbish and transform youth and community facilities in need of essential improvements (e.g. youth clubs, schools, community centres, sports clubs, and arts, music and cultural venues).

VIY participants are mentored by professional tradespeople and gain City & Guilds Entry Level 3 accreditations as well as access to further training, work placement and apprenticeship opportunities with local providers and employers beyond the project.

VIY launched in 2012 and, to date, over 350 youth and community buildings across England and Wales have been repaired/refurbished, involving 7,000 young people and 900 trade skills mentors, with 4,000 young people gaining a City & Guilds accreditation.

The Role

VIY are running a series of refurbishment projects at sports clubs in Leeds, with a focus on renovating changing rooms and clubhouses. We are looking for experienced trade mentors with experience in painting & decorating to join the team to deliver this activity. We are recruiting for this role on a freelance basis.

The role would involve working alongside other mentors and working with a small group of young people on each project day. We aim to give the young volunteers involved an insight into what it’s like to work in the trades, and help them develop an interest in practical career options in the trades & construction sector.

The ideal candidate will have experience of working with young people to help us inspire the next generation of tradespeople, but it is not essential to have worked with young people before.

The first works will be in September, with regular work opportunities throughout October and November. Hours on site will be 9am - 4.30pm.

Successful candidates will be given an online induction and training with the VIY team.

Successful candidates will require a DBS check.
