We were founded by HRH The Prince of Wales to tackle the global crisis in youth unemployment, building on four decades of experience in the UK.

Before Covid-19, 1 in 5 young people worldwide were not in employment, education, or training. Now, the pandemic will cause the deepest global recession in decades with the International Monetary Fund predicting “elevated unemployment rates”.

 

Prince’s Trust International works with local partners around the world to deliver education, employment and enterprise programmes that empower young people to learn, work and thrive. We pilot and then rollout projects to test and grow our models & develop new ones. The pandemic has necessitated innovation with our programmes increasingly moving online and with our having developed bespoke digital programmes.

 

Our programmes and interventions are now present in 13 countries within the Commonwealth and beyond, across Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Europe. 

This role will lead the Caribbean team in working closely with our 10 partners to deliver impactful projects to young people across Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, St Lucia and the wider Caribbean, and achieve the objectives set out in the regional strategy and growth plan.

 

The successful candidate will be a resilient and enthusiastic self-starter with a strong understanding of the challenges facing young people in the Caribbean, and the ability to deliver results under challenging and varied circumstances.

 

They will have strong planning and organisational skills and the ability to work effectively with people at different levels of seniority and from different backgrounds in the public, private and voluntary sectors, with evidence of their ability to influence and secure sustainable results.
