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.

You will engage and build quality relationships with young people, volunteers and partners and as an effective communicator and collaborator, you will thrive in both team and independent work.

To be successful in this role, you will need to be able to engage in challenges with optimism and resilience and be adaptive and flexible – embracing change and innovation. Due to the pandemic, you must be comfortable both working virtually and delivering programmes on virtual platforms.

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 let us know what you would bring to the table, that will help Scotland's young people in your supporting statement.
Upon joining the Trust, you’ll have the opportunity to join and be supported by our 4 main networks.

Why we need Prince's Trust Executives:
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 who 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.
