Durham County Council has been successful in attracting funding from the European Commission to develop a new, innovative programme for unemployed young people in County Durham. The Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) will support unemployed 16-24 year olds improve their skills and move into employment, training or education. The YEI programme will run to July 2018.

We have set ourselves ambitious targets to reduce the number of young unemployed people in the county and we want to build a team of enthusiastic, motivated people to develop and manage the YEI programme. This is a new team taking on a new challenge. We are looking for a person who can make a real contribution, both to the team and to the young people in the county. We need someone who wants to make a difference.

The successful candidates will manage the performance of a wide range of YEI deliverers including the service level agreements with YEI Delivery Partners and the contracts with sub-contractors. The post holders will support Delivery Partners and Sub-contractors to develop their capacity and expertise in order to ensure the successful delivery of provision. They will ensure accurate data collection, recording and monitoring takes place and will be responsible for preparing and presenting reports on progress and ensuring that resources are maximised and financial claims are compiled and submitted within deadlines.
