International Project Manager
Fixed Term Contract - 7 Months
Full Time 35 Hours per week
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.
Globally, it is estimated that around 70 million young people - more than one in ten - are out of work. Having built effective programmes and strong partnerships to help young people into jobs and self-employment in the United Kingdom, public and private organisations around the world have been turning to Prince's Trust International in their search for solutions to youth unemployment and to learn from the experience of The Prince's Trust in helping young people into work.
Prince's Trust International draws on the programme portfolio developed by The Prince's Trust and is currently running or planning pilot projects to test different operating models in different regions of the world, working with governments and NGOs, as well as corporate partners.
This role will lead an ambitious and exciting project working with national NGO Magic Bus to deliver a 2-year funded project. Building on the work already undertaken by our core programmes team, this role will manage the scaling of delivery to support over 800 young people across 6 cities in India.
The successful candidate will play a key role in engaging and stewarding corporate partners in India who can provide meaningful work placements as part of the Get Into programme, as well as employment opportunities for those young people who successfully complete the programme. This role will be based in Mumbai but require frequent travel across the country.
The Prince's Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to apply for an enhanced DBS check
