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.
In 2017 Prince's Trust International delivered a pilot programme in New Zealand in partnership with Kingslea School, a school which offers education to young people in Care and Protection and Youth Justice Residences. A total of five Kingslea School sites across, Christchurch, Rotorua and Dunedin successfully participated in the Achieve pilot programme and will continue to deliver in 2018. The focus of this role is to continue to support Kingslea School in the roll out of Achieve across all their sites while recruiting, training and supporting the implementation of Achieve throughout education providers and youth sectors in New Zealand. To achieve this the successful candidate will build relationships with and liaise with Oranga Tamariki (Ministry for Vulnerable Children), the Ministry for Education and other key stakeholders.
The successful candidate will also liaise with Prince's Charities New Zealand (PTNZ) who are currently undergoing a transition to Prince's Trust New Zealand (PTNZ). This transition will see PTNZ join the wider Prince's Trust Group. The successful candidate will liaise with PTNZ to transfer knowledge, build capacity and create a sustainable framework for Achieve delivery in New Zealand.
This role will be based in Christchurch or Auckland with frequent travel across New Zealand to support Achieve roll out and programme development.
