This exciting opportunity has been created as part of an on-going governance and operational review.

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated individual who has exceptional leadership and communication skills that can contribute to the development of this local youth project.

We are also seeking individuals to enhance our board of trustees. If you have skills in Marketing, HR, Legal or Finance we would love to hear from you, as well as people with passion and enthusiasm for proving services for young people.  

We are able to offer reasonable travel expenses, and a full induction and training program will be provided to support you in your role.

Hirst Active Youth is a youth led community organisation established in 2015. We work with young people aged 9-25 years living in Ashington, Northumberland and our purpose is to develop new activities and services in response to the needs of young people to provide support and aid a smooth transition into adulthood.

 Our work has been in existence since 2009 successfully delivered through the former Ashington Joint Welfare Scheme Charity at Hirst Welfare Centre.  In 2015 Hirst Welfare centre was part of a takeover process from Active Northumberland and youth work staff were a part of the Tupe transfer process.
