The Skill Mill Newcastle: Urban Green

The Skill Mill has been working in partnership with Urban Green Newcastle since 2020. We continue to offer opportunities for young people in the North East.

The Skill Mill provides employment opportunities in water and land based management, helping to reduce flood risk and improve the local environment. In turn, this brings social and environmental benefits to communities by involving local people directly in the delivery of services.

Urban Green Newcastle is an independent charity responsible for the management and upkeep of the city’s 33 parks and 61 allotment sites. Their mission is to connect communities and protect the local environment.

We are currently offering paid employment placements to young people across Newcastle upon Tyne and surrounding areas. During their time with us, young people will work alongside Urban Green, gain a nationally recognised qualification, and be supported into longer term sustainable employment.
