If so this is a fantastic opportunity to join our amazing team at UK Youth, the largest national body for the youth sector. We are a Charity at the heart of a UK wide network of organisations dedicated to supporting young people to realise their potential.


Our aim is for every young person we work with to be a positive force for change in their own life and the lives of others. We recognise that to do this young people need to develop crucial life skills that are not always acquired at home or through formal education.

You will be an enthusiastic, insightful and tenacious professional who can write excellent bids/proposals to generate funds to support our work.  In order to achieve this, the successful candidate will need to grasp a good understanding of UK Youth’s current and planned core and project work. The role will require contact externally with trusts/foundations and statutory funders, as well as internally across UK Youth’s teams and network.


If you have the experience, energy and enthusiasm to help us ensure that every young person is a positive force for change in their own life, and the lives of others, we look forward to receiving your application.
