Construction Youth Trust is a forward-thinking charity whose mission is to help young people reach their full potential and take their first steps towards a rewarding working life. We prepare young people for the world of work, support them to build their skills and confidence and connect them with opportunities and employers aligned with their individual strengths and interests. We prioritise young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, under-represented groups and those facing significant barriers to work.
Due to an increase in demand for our programmes, we are seeking to expand our committed team of Youth Coordinators and Schools & Programme Coordinators who work directly with young people, as well as build relationships with schools, referral partners, community groups and potential employers. An important focus of both roles is to help young people furthest from the jobs market to prepare for the world of work and achieve positive progress on their individual career journeys.

If you are passionate about transforming the life chances of young people, especially those facing disadvantage and exclusion, please send your CV and a written statement (no more than 500 words) explaining the specific role you are interested in and why the role interests you, your experience of supporting young people to make successful transitions into the world of work and how you meet the person specification to firstname.lastname@example.org
