The Key is a charity committed to inspiring young people to believe in themselves, especially those facing challenging circumstances. We work with nearly a hundred organisations across the North East who use the KEY+ Challenge to empower young people to use their voices, take part in activities and projects meaningful to them, build their skills and confidence, and become more active in their communities.

Through a wide variety of partnerships, young people are supported to complete the KEY+ Challenge, our youth-led skills development programme, built upon over 30 years' experience and founded on our core beliefs.

Our work is growing and we need someone who can be excellent at supporting young people taking part in KEY+ activities. You will also help us recruit and support volunteers in various roles to support The Key’s work, including being part of the KEY+ panels who hear from young people about their brilliant ideas.

It goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) you’ll need enthusiasm, ambition, and strong values. Day to day, you’ll work with a committed team who are super focused on trying to help young people access the brilliant opportunities they deserve. Staff wellbeing is important to us and we’ve developed working practices to reflect this.  We offer flexible working hours, you birthday off and dedicated resources to promote wellbeing.

This is a job that will guarantee you brilliant moments as you get close to the magic of what different groups of young people make happen when they get the right opportunities. Have a look at our website to see some of those amazing stories. If you’re interested and want to talk to us – please get in touch we’d love to speak to you and answer any questions.
