About Hackney Education:
Hackney Education provides a range of services to support the education of children, young people and adults in our inner London borough. Hackney is one of the UK’s highest performing local authorities, serving one of London’s best places to live and work. Within our diverse borough we serve a wide range of children and young people. We have a particular focus on supporting less advantaged families: Hackney figures in the 10% most deprived boroughs in England on a number of measures.
Hackney Education’s key priority is to improve the life chances of every child, young person and learner: making Hackney the most forward looking education system in the UK, where schools, settings and partners provide an exciting environment which ensures inclusion and success for everyone. We see our borough as being one of the best places in the country for young people to grow, learn, develop and achieve –and one of the best places for colleagues to work and thrive in our education system.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic, friendly project management team. You will help to put children and young people’s voices at the heart of designing an integrated health and wellbeing service. We’re looking for two young people (aged 18-25) for 18 hours a week each, with some weekend and evening work. The successful candidates will work closely with children and young people, project managers, specialists, clinicians and commissioners in youth work, social care, health and education.
You will need to demonstrate excellent skills including communication, organisational skills and the ability to work with and support a range of young people to carry out research. You will be committed to your professional development - keen to develop your skills and learn new ones, keeping an open mind and building positive and trusting relationships. This role is a fantastic opportunity for those who are keen to get experience in youth participation, project management, public services and health and wellbeing.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status. We also recognise that people can be disadvantaged by their social and economic circumstances, so we will also work to eliminate discrimination and disadvantage caused by social class. We also welcome those interested in flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people and people from a black and ethnic minority background as these groups are currently under represented in our workforce.
