Solutions for the Planet is a social enterprise, that works to create a world where sustainable practices are commonplace; every young person is equipped with essential skills that benefit people and planet; and social creativity, innovation and diversity is built into every business and workplace.

We are driven by our core values and encourage collaboration, both locally and internationally, between young people, schools and businesses to create opportunities for young voices to not only be heard, but acted upon.

We achieve this by inspiring new ways of thinking and behaving through partnerships between young people, teachers and businesses, as we know this mix of knowledge, skills and passion creates a sustainable present and future.

Through our Youth Insights programmes we use our network of over 100 schools and colleges to bring the unique voices of young people into the heart of businesses to help future-proof their strategies. Young people think without departmental barriers and bring actionable solutions to some of businesses most intransigent issues now and in the future. The aim is that enduring relationships can be formed through a S4TP Youth Insights panel – a win for business and a win for the young people involved.

We are looking for an individual who will be driven by our mission to grow in this role as part of the Solutions for the Planet core team.

This is an exciting time to be joining S4TP, at a time of significant growth and development, and the candidates will require a “can-do” and “muck-in” attitude.
