TEN North East Limited

TEN North East, formerly known as South Tyneside TEN have worked in the heart of communities especially in South Tyneside for over 25 years. TEN was established in 1994 to address the unemployment levels in South Tyneside impacted by the decline in the shipbuilding and coal mining industries.

To provide long-term sustainability to TEN North East, the charitable Company became wholly owned by Groundwork South & North Tyneside. Under the governance model, TEN retains its own charitable company status with an independent Board of Trustees whilst benefiting from the Executive and Management expertise and support from Groundwork.

Therefore, the existing and long standing Trustees of TEN North East are looking to expand the Board by an additional two people.

We are looking for individuals with one of the following skills, specialisms or experience:

  1. Social Care or Youth Work to support our Young Carers services
  2. Employment, Skills or Further Education to support our Employment Coaching services.

For more details please visit:, Trustees meet on average four times a year but also offer some support with specific projects and initiatives. Please note that due to the work of TEN, all Trustees are subject to DBS checks.

For an informal discussion regarding TEN and the Board positions, please contact Andrew Watts, CEO of TEN and Groundwork SaNT on 0191 4241576 or

The closing date for these roles is Friday 13th March.
