This critical role will lead a team responsible for the development and operations of a suite of services that support our operations, fundraising, HR, Finance and other support functions, many of which need to be refreshed, consolidated or replaced in the coming years. 

You will be perfect for this role if you have a passion for building technology services that balance meeting user needs with operational effectiveness and want to be part of an organisation with true purpose.

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.

Upon joining the Trust, you’ll have the opportunity to join and be supported by our 4 main networks. PT CAN (Cultural Awareness Network), PT GEN (Gender Equality), PT PULSE (LGBTQ+ network) and PT DAWN (Disability and Wellness Network). We want to work with people who think they can make a difference in young people’s lives, if you think that’s you, we’d love to hear from you.

 

 

Why we need a Head of Business Services:

Last year, we helped more than 70,000 young people, with three in four young people on our programmes, move into work, education or training. 

The young people we help face a range of challenges, such as unemployment, mental health issues or some have been in trouble with the law. Our job is to inspire and support young people, to help them reach their potential so that they can thrive and society can prosper.  

We believe all young people should have the chance to succeed, and that young people are the key to a positive and prosperous future for all of us.
