Brathay: A brief history
In 1946, Francis Scott, a successful businessman, founded the Brathay Hall Trust "...for the education... of young persons of both sexes from industry... for research into questions affecting the education of such persons... for the instruction of staff... and for any other (related) charitable purposes..."
Brathay Trust now works in many fields, extending Scott’s original vision to meet the needs of today. We are driven by the same holistic approach: to improve the life chances of children, young people and families by inspiring them to engage positively in their communities.
Our team of around 100 employees and 200+ associates and volunteers consists of passionate, skilled and experienced people. They love what they do and embody Brathay's values of inspire, support, share and achieve. There are so many strands to the organisation it is an interesting and friendly place to be, with an opportunity to work alongside colleagues with different experiences, backgrounds, expertise and perspectives. It makes for a dynamic and ever-changing work environment with the added bonus that everyone is working collectively towards a worthwhile and meaningful cause.
