Youth charity The Prince’s Trust is currently recruiting a Head of Projects to deliver work relating to our grant of £1m a year over ten years.
The Prince’s Trust gives practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills, such as confidence and motivation.

You will play an important role in ensuring that their grant of £1m a year over ten years will make a genuine difference for disadvantaged, hard-to-reach young people in London.
You will have an understanding and experience of working with supporters or clients to understand their needs, proving impact, and working with colleagues from diverse teams.
You will be an articulate leader with excellent inter-personal skills, confident in working with senior colleagues within The Prince’s Trust, and will gain the confidence of senior management and trustees of CBT, as well as more widely across the City of London Corporation.
You will be well organised and comfortable dealing with large amounts of information, presenting it effectively both verbally and in writing. You will be based across The Prince’s Trust sites in London, as well as in CBT and the City of London Corporation.
The Prince’s Trust will offer you support within a new team at the intersection of fundraising and delivery, and the chance to develop the role to maximise opportunities presented by this strategic support.
