We create opportunities for vulnerable young people to thrive and support them to build their skills and confidence.
Our courses give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. Three in four young people supported by the trust build a future they can believe in – moving into work, education or training.
Together we change lives
Founded by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales in 1976, the charity has helped more than 870,000 young people.
As part of our community, you’ll stand alongside volunteers, donors, fundraisers, staff, partners and young people. No matter which part of the trust’s team you join, you’ll play a key role in helping us to support young people and the many partners we work with.
As a national charity with local reach, we have opportunities right across the UK and across a range of expertise. These include:
- Developing innovative partnerships with organisations and donors to raise over £1m a week to support our vital work
- Applying digital expertise to improve how we connect with and support our young people and the wider Prince’s Trust community
- Bringing experience in marketing and communications, finance, IT, project management, contract management or HR to help us take the Prince’s Trust community forward
- Reaching out to young people, delivering programmes and recruitment events to help young people move into work, education, training or volunteering
Time well spent
As part of our community, you can expect your time with us to be engaging and rewarding, with a clear emphasis on continuous development, employee wellbeing, inclusion and engagement.
Our benefits package includes a competitive salary, flexible family friendly policies, 25 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays, group pension scheme, employee assistance programme, discounts and access to schemes such as childcare vouchers and cycle to work.
Equally importantly, we’ll give you a clear plan of the training and development you’ll need delivered in a blended way, including face-to-face, on-the-job induction and online learning. We want you to take control of your own development and explore those areas of interest to you, supported by a selection of internal and external opportunities.
The Prince’s Trust is committed to fairness and equality of opportunity. We believe in building a diverse organisation that is representative of and responsive to the needs of our young people.
We value and respect people’s different backgrounds, characteristics, ideas and beliefs. In support of this, we established a Women in Business network and PULSE, our LGBT+ network.
We are a Time to Change pledge employer, championing mental health and wellbeing, and we’re proud to hold the Investors in People Silver Standard as evidence of our commitment to our people.
Of all our strengths, it’s our people which set us apart. The level of passion and pride felt towards our aim is overwhelming and provides an outstanding level of motivation on which to build.
We are united by a shared vision that every young person should have the chance to succeed.
Programme Executive, Chair of PULSE
“When I was working in further education supporting young people looking for work, I regularly referred them to the Prince’s Trust who could provide further assistance. I also continued to recommend the trust when I ran my own business working with vulnerable adults, as I knew it would go the extra mile and deliver what young people required. Never did I think at that time that I would end up working for the trust – and now I’ve been here two and a half years!
“In 2016, not only did the trust celebrate its 40th year, but in November the executive management team supported the creation of Pulse, its LGBT+ network. I’m proud to have been elected its first chair and enjoy working with colleagues throughout the UK towards our vision ‘to provide a safe and inspiring environment for all gender, sexual and romantic minorities’. In our first nine months, 16% of the Prince’s Trust staff have identified as LGBT+ or support us as allies acknowledging the importance
of diversity and inclusion.”
