YouthBorders is the network of voluntary and community based youth organisations in the Scottish Borders, supporting and promoting good quality youth work.

As a membership organisation, YouthBorders facilitates networking opportunities and events and provides information and advice to voluntary and community based youth organisations, their volunteers, trustees, youth workers and other partners in the community. We are recognised regionally as the strategic voice of third sector youth organisations and work closely with partners in the public sector to improve outcomes for young people.

We are seeking an exceptional communicator with experience of project coordination or management. The post-holder will be highly organised, self-motivated and have knowledge and experience of data collection, evaluation and outcomes monitoring.

Key Duties:

  • To be the principal point of contact for the coordination of the project, communicating effectively with representatives of the Partnership including project workers, youth work managers, trustees and the Chief Officer of YouthBorders.
  • To monitor and evaluate the delivery of the project’s outcomes – producing regular written reports to the Partnership and the YouthBorders’ board; and compiling and producing annual and end of project impact reports.
  • To develop systems which capture project impact and activity, in a way which reflects the views and experiences of young people, project workers and other stakeholders.
  • To support project workers to be confident and competent in the collection and recording of data related to young people they are supporting, and to build capacity in these workers to input the data in to the project database.
