The North East Child Poverty Commission are hiring for a Child Poverty Coordinator. This is a part time (60%), fixed term role until 31 May 2022, at £30,395 - £39,610 per annum, pro rata.

Child Poverty in the North East of the UK is increasing and is predicted to get worse. This offends social justice, is dysfunctional to children and families as well as to the well-being of society. This situation is not inevitable and change can happen.

The North East Child Poverty Commission aims to raise awareness of the issues of child poverty and to work collaboratively to address the problem. We are entering an exciting new phase, including a partnership with Newcastle University which hosts the network and the appointment of a new Child Poverty Coordinator to work on the Commission's strategic priorities.

The Commission meets three times a year and holds additional events to engage with a wider group of supporters. We are keen to step up our information, communication and campaigning activity. As Child Poverty Coordinator, you will have a key role in promoting evidence- academic research and experiential as well as identifying policy and practice implications.

Applications close on 7 July 2019.
