We’re Hiring – Thanet Youth Network Administrator

We’re seeking a part-time Network Administrator for the Thanet Youth Network. Hosted by Pie Factory Music, the Thanet Youth Network encompasses over 30 organisations and freelance practitioners working with young people across a range of creative arts, sports and youth-centred activities and programmes.

The Network aims to address the issue of organisations competing for ever-shrinking funding pots by facilitating better collaboration, and increasing the knowledge, understanding and confidence of the youth sector workforce in Thanet through regular meetings and training events. The Network Administrator will work closely with the core group responsible for steering the Network, made up of representatives from Pie Factory Music, Margate Creative Land Trust, Discovery Planet, Oasis Domestic Abuse Service, and Quench Gallery.

About the role

The Network Administrator will be responsible for the successful operation of the Thanet Youth Network. The ideal candidate will be confident managing a contacts database, have experience of planning, scheduling and convening meetings and events, and be literate in digital communications and evaluation platforms, such as MailChimp, Typeform and website building platforms.

They will also have experience running social media channels, producing content, responding to interactions and messages from followers and actively growing an online following. They will be excellent communicators, confidently liaising with a growing membership of over 50 individuals across Thanet, and acting as an ambassador to the Network. They will have clear boundaries and strong time management skills, as this is a one day a week role; and be able to liaise with several different partners making up the core group of the Thanet Youth Network.
