The Staff team consists of 3 full-time and 1 part-time staff, together with 17 sessional workers. All members of staff have written job descriptions. A key aspect of the employment of staff for all positions is to try to recruit locally in the first instance and to involve young people in the selection and interview process where possible.

The role of the Project Manager includes: overseeing the day-to-day operation of YPF linking with the active members of YPF who run the various groups; the promotion of YPF’s work; ensuring involvement of young people wherever possible; liaising with policy makers, related agencies, partners and other contacts; monitoring YPF’s financial activities; reporting to the Management Board; devising and directing fundraising activities. 

The project also employs a part-time family support worker who provides support to families in the community and young individuals.

YPF attaches great importance to the work of its volunteers without whom it could not deliver the full range of its services. They are local individuals – adult volunteers and junior volunteers. At present, there are 7 volunteers serving in a variety of settings. New volunteers are carefully vetted and all receive induction training in every aspect of their work. Various training courses are arranged throughout the year, Supervision of volunteers is exercised by the Volunteer Co-ordinator. There are examples of volunteers having acquired formal qualifications, awards and employment based on their work in the project. The project has issued clear standards of practice relating to equal opportunities, confidentiality, child protection, health and safety, alcohol and drugs, gender issues, young people’s rights.

The day-to-day running of YPF is managed by its Project Manager, who regularly reports to the Management Board.
