Job description


Location: Remote working

Are you passionate about working with young people and supporting the health and social care sector?

We have several exciting opportunities across the country to join our dynamic team that are well suited to individuals who are looking to gain hands-on experience in a thriving and supportive workplace. The successful candidates must be as passionate as us about transforming the lives of young people.

Countless talented young people across the country are unemployed, under-employed or looking for a better career. Meanwhile, across social care and the NHS (one of the largest employers in Europe) there is currently a staffing crisis with thousands of vacancies across hundreds of roles. In this role you have the power to make a difference in this crucial time.  Could you lead our programmes to support 10,000 young people into health and care careers by 2023?

As a Youth Development Lead, you will work with young people, volunteers and partners to deliver programmes and activities to support and encourage 16-30-year olds into sustained health and social care roles. Working as part of a regional team, you will work with clear objectives to ‘connect’, ‘progress’ and help ‘transform’ the lives of young people who need us most.

This is a really exciting time for our team as we are expanding and have a number of Youth Development Lead vacancies across England.  We embrace flexible working at The Prince’s Trust so these roles can be home based, although please be aware there will be a requirement to regularly travel to the patch you are supporting to deliver programmes.  As part of your application, please indicate where in the country you are based/would like to work in and can commute to.
