Further Information
Newcastle is a great City, with a proud history. We never stand still. Our children, young people and families reflect the changing face of our communities, our vibrancy and diversity. We know that the last three years has been tough for many and that significant challenges remain. However, we are ambitious. As a city we are committed to making positive change with our children, young people and families doing things bigger and better than we ever have. To deliver these ambitions we need the best people on board.

About the role
As the Manager for Voice, Influence and Youth you will be at the heart of how we hear what matters to children and young people across the city and how we work with them, colleagues across the Council and our partners to make positive change. In recent years we have creatively re-imagined how the Council supports the youth sector – supporting more grass roots organisations and putting young people at the centre of our decision making. You will build on what we have achieved so far and ensure the city remains at the forefront of recognised best practice.
This is a senior role within Strategy and Commissioning at the heart of the Council’s Children, Education and Skills directorate.

About you
We are looking for the very best people with a desire to make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people. You will understand the relevant legislation and policy underpinning the voice and influence of children and young people and youth services as well as the current drivers and issues facing these sectors. You will be adept at building relationships with diverse stakeholders including schools, Councillors and voluntary sector partners, and have substantial experience of persuading senior leaders and funders to work differently.

We are strongly committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS disclosure and a range of other recruitment checks.

We are hoping to hold interviews on the afternoon of Tuesday 12th December
