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..
The Prince's Trust is a youth charity whose mission is to help young people transform their lives by developing the confidence and skills, to live, learn and earn. This year we will support more than 70,000 young people through a range of proven programmes, with three in four achieving a positive outcome.
We have a bold ambition to extend the reach and impact of our work and help one million more young people transform their lives over the next ten years. Our job is to inspire them, support them and release their potential, so that they can thrive and society can prosper. We will focus on innovation, to ensure we adapt and remain relevant in a rapidly changing world. We owe it to ourselves and the young people we serve, to do the best work of our lives and to help give them an increasing stake in our economy and society. They are the key to a positive and prosperous future for all of us.
To help us realise our vision, we are changing our approach and looking at innovative ways to develop and enhance our ways of working. This has led to the creation of exciting new opportunities across The Prince’s Trust at all levels based throughout the United Kingdom.

The Trust has returned £1.4 billion in value to society through its help for disadvantaged young people over the last 10 years alone.

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.
