Job Description

The Prince’s Trust Scotland is currently going through an exciting period of development. We have ambitions to grow our offer to young people by providing a blended approach of face-to-face and digital delivery and support. To help us on this journey we are looking for passionate and motivated individuals to join our dynamic teams to work with young people either directly through 1-to-1 work, delivery of programmes or indirectly through our partners and volunteers.

Location: West of Scotland in Greater Glasgow & Clyde Valley and South West Scotland in Ayrshires and Dumfries & Galloway

Our Prince’s Trust Executive roles have a broad focus and we encourage cross working across teams and focus areas. Currently, we are looking for Prince’s Trust Execs that will focus on one of the below areas;

  • 1-to-1 work with young people – managing a caseload, removing barriers, action planning & goal setting
  • Delivery of programmes with groups of young people – including Employability, Enterprise & Personal Social Development programmes
  • Partnership and volunteer delivery – Working with our Education & FE partners to support the delivery of our programmes as well as supporting the volunteers that assist in programme delivery.
  • Administration of our Grants & Awards programmes – helping remove barriers to employment for young people or start them on the path to their own business

To be successful in the role of a Prince’s Trust Executive, you will be able to engage in challenges with optimism and resilience and be adaptive and flexible – embracing change and innovation. Due to the pandemic and ways of working you must be comfortable both working virtually and communicating on virtual platforms.

We work with young people from every background, so we’re passionate about building a diverse workforce that represents the young people we support. We, therefore, welcome applications from everyone who meets the essential criteria for the role. If you think you could do the role, but don’t have all the desirable experience, we would still love for you to apply, as you’ll have the chance to complete a supporting statement to let us know what you would bring to the table, that will help young people in West & South West Scotland.

Company Description

The Prince’s Trust believes every young person should be given the chance to flourish.

Since 1976, we’ve achieved a great deal, supporting more than 1,000,000 young people across the UK, and have returned £1.4 billion in value to society over the last ten years alone. Yet, this still represents only a small proportion of the young people who might benefit from our support. Three in four young people on our programmes move into work, education or training. Our job is to inspire and support them, to help them reach their potential, so that they can thrive and society can prosper. 

Many of the young people we help are disadvantaged, either in, or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health issues, or have been in trouble with the law.

Our free programmes give young people the practical skills and financial support they need to stabilise their lives. We help them develop key skills while boosting their confidence and motivation so they can continue to dream big.
