The Midlands

Work in the Community
Urban Alternatives, Birmingham
Urban Alternatives has grown out of the Cathedral Gardens project based in Manchester.
The project works with the Goth and Emo youth subcultures in both Manchester and
Birmingham. The aim of the project is to get young people involved in volunteering activity
that reinforces pro-social behaviour by engaging positively in the Community, thus helping to
engender a more positive profile of these young people. In Birmingham on a typical
Saturday, several hundred young people spend hours socialising in Cathedral Square. This
is a vibrant, distinctive and much loved meeting place, but can also be a focus for conflict
with other people in the city centre and the site of young people taking risks and being at risk
from others. Urban Alternatives in partnership with Birmingham Cathedral is led by young
people, employing them as peer youth workers every Saturday and creating over 750
volunteering opportunities for at least 470 young people during the course of the project. The
volunteers will devise their own projects and turn them into action, making sure that young
people get new practical and creative skills and experiences and a real sense of
achievement.




                                                                                  Page 10 of 19

release.

Nationwide Volunteering

European Volunteering Scheme - Nationwide Programme

training in English and orientation in their new area. The programme also has some
placements which are suitable for young people who have faced disadvantage in their lives.
Some of the young people from our projects spend a period of time in a European country
volunteering. This is especially important for young people who need 'time out' and a chance
to get away from their current situation. All of the projects offer an opportunity to engage in
an activity where they are valued and actively involved.

Depaul Nightstop UK

                                    APPLYING FOR A JOB
                            SOME ADVICE ON COMPLETING THE FORM
Because Depaul UK strives to be an equal opportunities employer, the application form plays an important part in
the selection process: both in deciding whether or not you will be short listed for an interview and as a basis for the
interview itself. The following advice is designed to help you to complete the application form as effectively as
possible.

Read the Job Description and Person Specification carefully.__________________________________

   Every post advertised has a full job description and person specification that will be used to decide which people
    are interviewed and appointed.

Analyse the job description and person specification_________________________________________

   Ask yourself why you are interested in the job. Would it be a good career move: sideways to broaden your
    experience or promotion if you are ready for more responsibility? (Can you support this?)

   The person specification will list the skills, knowledge, qualification and experience required. Show how you
    meet each requirement.

Look at your experience_________________________________________________________________

   What evidence have you got that illustrates you have the necessary skills, knowledge and experience?

   Explaining your present (and previous) jobs to someone else may help to uncover ‘hidden’ skills etc., that you
    take for granted.

   Consider any relevant experience you have acquired outside of work such as community/voluntary/leisure
    interests.

Do a rough draft first____________________________________________________________________

   Write out the form in rough to avoid mistakes, repetition etc. This also gives you the opportunity to ensure that
    your form is well organised and relevant.

   Write out your career history: do not go into too much detail but make sure that you explain the main features of
    each job that you have had. Check that the dates are correct, in the right order and explain any gaps in your
    employment record.

General experience and further information_________________________________________________

   This is where you make your case for the job. Please do not send your CV as CVs will not be put forward for
    shortlisting, but do support your application by attaching up to a maximum of three pages with specific reference
    to the person specification and job description. Gear your application to the job: don’t submit the same one for a
    series of jobs unless it is equally appropriate. Do not repeat your career history: pick out the skills, knowledge
    and experience required by the job and provide evidence that you posses them.

   Your form should be written in concise, well organised and positive ways (e.g. use active words like ‘I
    wrote/organised’). Specify your own responsibilities rather than those of your team or department.

Complete the form______________________________________________________________________

   Type it or use ballpoint (black shows up best when copied). Ensure it is well presented to create a good
    impression.

Send your form in on time. Always keep a copy for reference.
