Operation Support Co-ordinator (Centre) Edinburgh


Full time- 35 hours a week

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.

The Prince's Trust - Scotland is a vibrant, committed, diverse and growing third sector organisation which supports some of Scotland's most vulnerable young people across Scotland's most excluded communities.

This is an exciting opportunity with the role reporting to the Operation Support Manager in Scotland.

We are seeking a talented individual who will take a lead role in co-ordinating the Operational support for the Prince's Trust Programmes in Edinburgh. You will be responsible for the main reception of the Edinburgh Centre and will be a friendly and helpful first point of contact for all visitors.

The role is a varied and challenging role and will support the management of facilities and building maintenance of the Edinburgh centre. The post holder will be responsible for maintaining accurate up to date records in line with funding contracts, quality audits and policy.  The post holder will need experience of email, internet and MS applications. 

The position will require the ability to communicate with the Young People from the Prince's Trust target groups. The ideal candidate will have excellent IT skills and be highly motivated, with strong organisational and interpersonal skills.

The Prince's Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to apply for an enhanced DBS check
