An important announcement

After five transformative years, we would like to announce that our wonderful CEO Anna Smee is leaving UK Youth at the end of the year to take up a new role.

Next year she is embarking on a new challenge, developing and leading the Youth Futures Foundation, a £90 million endowment set up to remove the barriers preventing disadvantaged young people from entering the labour market, with a particular focus on addressing the ethnic disparities in youth employment.

We will be very sad to see her go, but she is leaving UK Youth in the capable hands of a dynamic board and leadership team. Recruitment for the new CEO will launch soon. Interested candidates can contact Borge Andreassen or Suzannah Fazackerley at Prospectus on 020 7691 1920, or email borge.andreassen@prospect-us.co.uk / suzannah.fazackerley@prospect-us.co.uk

We have no doubt the charity will attract an exceptional next CEO to take up the reins and build on the strong foundations in place to continue to improve the impact of our work in the next exciting chapter in the charity’s 108-year history.
