Job Description

CORC Youth Engagement Officer

The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families supports distressed children and their families through innovative therapeutic practice and research, training and promoting awareness of mental health issues.

We are looking for a Youth Engagement Officer for the Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC).  CORC is the UK’s leading membership organisation that collects and uses evidence to improve children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing. CORC has over sixty member organisations and an extensive Network spanning schools, voluntary and statutory service providers, local authorities, and professional bodies across the UK and beyond.

CORC is introducing this post to support us to strengthen our youth involvement.  We are committed to taking a more strategic, planned and consistent approach in this area, and the postholder will play a key role in developing and implementing new relationships, processes, and initiatives to achieve this. The postholder will be part of the CORC team and will work closely with participation colleagues in the Anna Freud Centre – as well as developing relationships with participation leads in our member organisations.

We are looking for a collaborative, proactive, motivated individual with experience of actively engaging and supporting young people to participate, collaborate and influence the development and creation of services, with a commitment to all that CORC stands for. You may have an NHS or mental health background, work in social care, a local authority or schools, or you may come from another field entirely.
