An exciting opportunity has arisen for a HAREF Network Co-ordinator within Newcastle CVS, based in the centre of Newcastle.
Newcastle CVS is the major infrastructure body supporting the voluntary and community sector in Newcastle and Gateshead. We have a particular focus on tackling inequalities. We were approached by HAREF (Health and Race Equality Forum) earlier this year and it is now moving to be part of Newcastle CVS. We are committed to supporting the HAREF network to continue its effective practical and strategic work. This post will deliver part of the work within the Newcastle and Gateshead CCG contract and also further develop the HAREF work, particularly into Gateshead. The HAREF Network Coordinator will develop and sustain the HAREF Network in order to influence commissioners and service providers in order to reduce health inequalities in Newcastle and Gateshead.
The applicant should have an understanding of the challenges and benefits of working with different communities, and an appreciation of community development work, particularly with people from minority / marginalised groups. They should have good communication skills, both verbal and written and have a flexible approach to their work. This role is essential to the future development of HAREF.
