Programme Executive - Fairbridge
Full time- 35 hours a week
The Prince's Trust is a youth charity that helps change young lives. We give practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills, such as confidence and motivation. We work with 11 to 30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. We have helped more than 825,000 young people since 1976 and support 100 more each working day. More than three in four young people we helped last year moved into work, education or training. We are committed to equality and valuing diversity.
We are looking for an experienced youth worker who has an awareness of the issues affecting challenging young people, but most importantly the ability to inspire and build effective relationships with them.
To support this, applicants would be expected to have experience of facilitating personal development and life skills through group work and 1:1 sessions. You will plan and deliver a range of courses and also take part in various outdoor activities which will involve residential.
You will raise personal awareness in young people allowing them to take responsibility for their own development and the confidence to realise their own potential.
The Prince's Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to apply for an enhanced PVG Check
