Who we are:

Since its formation in 2018, Politics in Action has been at the forefront of equipping young people with the knowledge and skills needed to engage with each other across social, economic and religious boundaries in Northern Ireland.

Our work provides a platform for school students to collaborate and debate the pressing issues that need resolution if our society is to move on from conflict.  We provide a structured programme for Year 11 and Year 13 and other youth groups from different religious and socio-economic backgrounds that assists them to discuss and research the issues which matter to them and to recommend how these could be addressed. We help them collectively arrive at solutions which are mutually beneficial.  Further, we give them the opportunity to present their cases directly to the decision-makers and elected representatives that hold the power to turn their ideas into practical action.

What we’re looking for:

We’re looking for some-one who can lead from the front, participating in some of the delivery of the PIA programme to the schools and youth groups we work with, and provide support and co-ordination of the whole programme with a panel of facilitators. Additionally, we’ll be looking for effective leadership throughout PIA in partnership with the Chair of the Board in accordance with its aims, strategic and policy framework.
