You will have strong planning and organisational skills and able to work with and train people at different levels of seniority and from different countries in the public, private and voluntary sectors.  You will have enthusiasm and passion for the vision of Prince's Trust International, and a conviction to deliver high positive outcomes for young people worldwide.
