Job description

A dynamic, growing and successful charity, UK Youth sits at the heart of a UK wide movement of 3,500 national, regional and local youth organisations, who collectively reach 1.5 million young people. Together we are committed to providing access to high quality services and positive opportunities in every community so that young people are empowered to build bright futures, regardless of their background or circumstances. We are also a strong advocate nationally for young people and the positive impact of youth work and informal learning.


Chief Executive

London (with national travel)

£85,000 – £95,000


UK Youth’s role at the heart of a successful, agile and growing movement of young people, youth organisations and supporters, is increasingly important against a backdrop of reduced financial support for high quality youth work. We are ambitious and optimistic that all young people have tremendous potential and opportunity providing they have the right support. As our Chief Executive, you will play a leading role in building, shaping and focusing our organisation and the wider movement to maximize impact for young people.


We are looking for an exceptional individual to develop and grow UK Youth and the movement, providing leadership inside and outside the charity, advocating and influencing on behalf of young people and the organisations that serve them. With an empowering and collegiate leadership style, you will focus on a ‘what works’ approach, promoting the work we do and its impact on young people. You will bring previous leadership experience from an organisation of comparable scale and complexity, and you are a credible and engaging communicator. Most importantly, you will share our commitment to achieving lasting, positive change for young people.

UK Youth welcomes applications regardless of sex, gender, race, age, sexuality, belief or disability.
