Further Information

North Tyneside Council is looking to employ a Social Inclusion Manager to develop and deliver several initiatives supporting the social inclusion agenda in North Tyneside, including but not limited to
• Management of the implementation of the Holiday Activity and Food (HAF)Programme in North Tyneside.
• Delivery of our innovative Poverty Intervention Fund (PIF) and associated projects
• Development of a social inclusion framework in North Tyneside

You will lead on the development, implementation, and monitoring of an engaging holiday activity programme across the borough initially accessible to young people eligible for free school meals but also looking to support other children and young people. You will need to work collaboratively to build and fund a broad and engaging offer delivered by a combination of delivery partners. We want our offer to be responsive to need and build upon existing holiday provision and we are looking for someone with energy, enthusiasm, and creativity to help us to do this. The programme will offer enriching activities, physical activity, nutritional education, and a meal to encourage children and young people to move lots, eat well and have fun through the holidays. We want you to make sure that the programme is inclusive and must pay particular attention to the needs of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

You will need to be comfortable working with Elected Members, VCS colleagues, strategic partners and most importantly communities to identify priorities to support the delivery of our ground-breaking Poverty Intervention Fund which aims to alleviate the impacts of poverty on residents in the borough. You and the team will work collaboratively to ensure that the PIF is spent in the areas of most need whilst ensuring that all projects are implemented and monitored successfully.

You will need to work with colleagues across the council and partners to develop a Social Inclusion Framework ensuring that our all residents are supported to achieve the best outcomes regardless of their background, economic status, protected characteristic or where they live. Most importantly, working with partners and communities you will contribute to ensuring that North Tyneside continues to be a great place to live, work and visit for all.

You will use the learning from your work and your prior experience to support the sustainability of all our programmes, ensuring that our residents in North Tyneside are given the opportunity to be included in all that we do. To do this you will work with colleagues in the Participation, Advocacy & Engagement Team who lead on resident and young people’s engagement.

When talking to some of our young people they have identified that the right person for this post is “someone with experience to be able to deliver but who also remembers why they went into their line of work in the first place”. If you think you are the right person to join us, we would love to hear from you. If you are offered an interview you will be expected to be interviewed by young people as a key part of the process.

You will be required to travel across the authority and possibly wider.
