Our Northern Ireland Delivery Team would like to hear from you if you have a passion for helping young people in the Trust's target groups (ages 11-30). The Prince's Trust operates a hybrid model of office and home working.

 

As part of the Delivery Team, Youth Development Leads have a broad focus, working in important areas such as Education (in partnerships with schools), Employment and Personal Development. We encourage cross-working across teams and focus areas. You must ensure that every young person we engage, progresses with an appropriate pathway of learning and development and one to one support. You will demonstrate best practices in how we work with young people in a safe way, to ensure we deliver maximum value for young people and partners.

 

To be successful in the role of Youth Development Lead, you will be able to engage in challenges with optimism and resilience and be adaptive and flexible – embracing change and innovation. Due to the pandemic and ways of working you must be comfortable both working virtually and communicating on virtual platforms.

 

We work with young people from every background, so we are passionate about building a diverse workforce that represents the young people we support. We, therefore, welcome applications from everyone who meets the essential criteria for the role. Your application will be a CV and a supporting statement. Your supporting statement must provide evidence of how you have acquired and applied each of the essential skills, knowledge and experience criteria and if possible, each of the desirable skills, knowledge and experience criteria, outlined in the job description, in current and previous roles, or other scenarios.

Why we need Youth Development Leads:

 

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 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.
