The Prince's Trust is a youth charity that helps change young lives. We give practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills, such as confidence and motivation. We work with 11 to 30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. We have helped more than 825,000 young people since 1976 and support 100 more each working day. More than three in four young people we helped last year moved into work, education or training. We are committed to equality and valuing diversity..
BTA (Bruce Tait Associates) are delighted to be working with The Prince’s Trust in their search for a Head of Events.
The Princes Trust gives life changing opportunities to young people who are struggling at school or are unemployed.
Its model works! Three out of four move into jobs, education and/or training.
The Trust has returned £1.4 billion in value to society through its help for disadvantaged young people over the last 10 years alone. But there is still so much to do and the charity relies on its fundraising team to help it deliver on its aims and ambitions. There is particular emphasis on events fundraising with the now famous Lunch with an old Bag raising £1million in 2018.
It is now looking for someone with significant experience in leading the development and delivery of major fundraising events. Your team will contribute to the overarching fundraising target of £5million. You will have strong track record of delivering mass participation special events and have experience developing and stewarding relationships with volunteer committees. You will need to be an excellent communicator and a strong leader.
