- We gather as a full team at least four times a year. This is an important part of our work to celebrate the work we have done, an opportunity to knowledge share and input into future plans together.

As a result, we are recruiting for a number of new roles designed to enable the organisation to grow, improve our ways of working and enable us to deliver our ambitious 2025 strategic plan.
Working across the Collective Action Team, you will support the efficient day to day administration and coordination of the Department. You will provide first-class customer service, support the development of account management processes and coordinate a range of activities and events to support the Department objectives.
Under the direction of the department head, you will be supporting and assisting with the following areas: engagement with the UK Youth Movement (inc. youth organisations, young people, volunteers and supporters), data collection of key stakeholder groups, department activity/event coordination and policy/public affairs support.
Who we are
UK Youth is a leading charity that exists to ensure all young people are equipped to thrive and empowered to contribute at every stage of their lives. We have influence as a sector-supporting infrastructure body, a direct delivery partner and a campaigner for social change. As outlined in our 2025 #unlockingyouthwork strategy, we believe youth work is a catalyst for change that young people need now more than ever. We play a unique role in addressing; the lack of investment into the youth sector, the lack of cross-sector understanding of how youth work makes a difference and the limited opportunities to embed effective solutions.
We are building a movement of change; galvanising likeminded individuals, organisations, government, and businesses from all sectors, to work together and deliver system change for all young people. Together we will create a society that understands, champions, and delivers effective youth work for all.
Why work at UK Youth
We are a value-based, passionate and committed organisation offering a friendly working environment with lots of opportunities for professional development and socialising (even for those working remotely!) from lunch and learn sessions, staff quizzes, to virtual coffee meet ups.
UK Youth prides itself on being an Equal Opportunity employer, and we would particularly welcome applications for this role from those who identify under one of the protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010.
We value the differences that a diverse workforce brings and are committed to inclusivity and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Our selection procedures ensure that people are treated on the basis of their relevant merits, experience, skills and abilities and that no individual receives more or less favourable treatment.
We welcome applications from groups currently under-represented in our organisation including BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and persons with disabilities. We are also currently underrepresented by men, and so are seeking applications from different backgrounds, cultures, age, experience and identity to bring a wide range of experience, ideas, views and insights to UK Youth.
What we can offer you
We offer a competitive range of benefits, good work/life balance, excellent learning and development opportunities and vibrant organisational culture.
27 days annual leave plus bank holidays
Pension scheme (currently UK Youth match employee contributions up to 5%)
Membership of our life insurance scheme which would pay-out up to 4 times your salary
