Working for us
We are an optimistic and ambitious organisation. Through our positive approach, we inspire and motivate the most marginalised and disengaged young people in the UK to change their lives and to get into jobs, education, training or volunteering.
Our programmes give young people the practical and financial support they need to stabilise their lives. We help develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training.
Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training. We have helped 825,000 young people since 1976 and support over 100 more each day.
Our success depends on the work and support of our staff and our volunteers. People are the most important thing we have – they are the ones who make a difference!
Of all our strengths, it's our people which set us apart. Our people have a wonderful range of personal and professional backgrounds and motivations. The level of passion and pride felt towards our aim is overwhelming and provides an outstanding level of motivation on which to build.
We are united by a shared vision that every young person should have the chance to succeed.
Each role within The Trust requires different skills and expertise. Our values define our beliefs and behaviours and are fundamental to how we work every day with clients, colleagues, volunteers, supporters and partners. They describe the sort of people we are, how we conduct ourselves and the experience people can expect when they come into contact with The Trust.
