Simone Banks – Development Officer

Simone started as a volunteer with Youth Focus: North East in August 2014 working on a number of projects within the organisation including supporting pupils from the Joseph Swan School on a pre-employment course and also the My Mind Matters project which raises awareness of mental health issues.

She then joined the staff team as a Youth Involvement Worker for the Talent Match project in April 2015. Her role involves working alongside Talent Match Champions to help individuals facing barriers who are furthest from the job market gain support, employability skills and opportunities back into the world of work.

Outside of work Simone spends quality time with her 4 year old Son (using any excuse to act like a big kid!), socialises with friends and family and enjoys eating out and attending music events.
