The Prince's Trust is a youth charity whose mission is to help young people transform their lives by developing the confidence and skills, to live, learn and earn. This year we will support more than 70,000 young people through a range of proven programmes, with three in four achieving a positive outcome.
In this exciting and varied role, you will be focussed on developing strategic partnerships from multiple sectors, principally retail, consumer, leisure, hospitality, built environment, infrastructure and real estate.

Together, you will harness the skills and networks of Prince's Trust Senior Volunteer Groups and other key stakeholders alongside targeted prospecting techniques to meet your objectives.
Excellent relationship management skills will be second nature to you, with the ability to relate to people at all levels within potential corporate partners as well as within The Prince's Trust. You will be organised and a strong project manager, confident in solving problems and securing financial targets, and take a creative approach where needed.
With a proven track record of securing charity partnerships you will have a good understanding of both the corporate responsibility agenda and the needs of business.
You will be joining an organisation committed to being the best for young people, our supporters and our staff. Training and support will help optimise your own development alongside the rich and diverse nature of this role.
Your passion and commitment to the cause will be critical to your success in the role, as will your ability to articulate with great confidence, the huge impact that The Prince’s Trust has on those that it serves.
