This role will support the delivery of a North East Youth Alliance. We believe that young people get the very best from services when the services they access work together.

Youth Focus North East and NE Youth initiated the creation of the North East Youth Alliance but it does not belong to us. We support it to operate by:

Connecting - We’re connecting everyone who cares about young people – bringing together organisations and young people themselves.

Developing - We’re developing and sharing knowledge and skills – equipping others to help young people access the support they need.

Collaborating – We’re providing collaborative working opportunities with a range of statutory, voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations

The successful candidate will identify, build relationships and work with a range of partners and organisations to support collaboration with the aim of coordinating and developing high quality services for young people. They will promote and link with local, regional and national youth voice structures to ensure that young people’s voices are heard in a range of service and decision-making settings.

Workforce development will also be a key part of the role, identifying needs and working collaboratively to provide training and development opportunities for workers and volunteers at all levels.
