You will provide quality support to delivery partners and volunteers across Bristol and the surrounding areas, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Somerset. The role is suited to you if you enjoy working with people and building strong relationships.

Delivering excellent support, you will ensure quality volunteering experiences are had at the Prince’s Trust.

 

You will support and deliver volunteer training; you will work with volunteers virtually and face-to-face. The role will involve organising and managing events for partners and volunteers, again in virtual and face-to-face capacities.

 

If you are up for a challenge and would like to be part of a great team, we would love to hear from you! Your application will be a CV and a supporting statement (cover letter). 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 a Youth Development Lead:
