I joined the YMCA St Paul’s Group because I wanted to give something back by using my skills and passion for getting the best outcome for those who need it most in society.

I find it rewarding that by working as part of a team, we improve the lives of those who use, work, live, and are part of the community of YMCA St Pauls group. YMCA’s ethos of body, mind and spirit creates a unique and reflective culture where delivery and results have a purpose of improving lives.

I would highly recommend joining if you care and want to be part of a team that makes a positive difference – YMCA St Paul’s Group is for you.

Our values

Area director ad - YMCA Jobs and Opportunities


We expect to be generous with our kindness, compassion and respect, treating others as we would like to be treated ourselves.


We know that everyone is unique, and we want to resource and equip people so that they can hope for a better future and make the best decisions.


We understand that everyone has the potential for wholeness in body, mind and spirit. We acknowledge where brokenness and hurt have damaged this fullness of life and commit to encouraging and empowering others to grow.

People centred

We place relationship at the heart of all we do, knowing that we grow better together. We will consider the thinking, emotions, personality and situation of each individual and we will draw out and support resilience, learning and transformative personal development.

Community focused

We value all people, of faith and none and welcome all by celebrating diversity and challenging inequality. Within our internal teams, service users and other community collaborators we recognise the best solutions are co-created.


We are an equal opportunities employer. We know the importance of diversity and positively welcome applications from all members of the community, including those with disabilities. We are a Christian organisation who welcomes and serves all faiths and none. Employees are required to respect our ethos and uphold our values.


The vision of YMCA St Paul’s Group is of ‘places where young people thrive and communities flourish’. To do that we need to ensure that we safeguard the needs of all children, young people and vulnerable adults, who use our services.

Safeguarding is a key priority of the Charity and as such we have a requirement for all staff, volunteers and contractors to support us in its delivery.

As part of that commitment, we do require that once shortlisted, candidates make the necessary disclosures in advance of a Disclosure and Barring Service Check being made at the appropriate level should you reach the offer stage.
