Head of the Youth Career Initiative
Scott is passionate about addressing the causes of social inequality and promoting social mobility, and is motivated to work in roles which allow him to do this. With over 10 years’ experience in the public, private and non-profit sectors, Scott joined YCI in October 2014 as Partnerships and Operations Manager before moving into the role of the Head of the Youth Career Initiative in November 2016.
Believing that decent work offers a stable income and a sense of purpose, he is driven by the transformative impact of the Youth Career Initiative in helping disadvantaged young people break out of the experience trap – where someone lacks the skills and experiences to get a job, whilst also in need of the financial resources to pursue further education.
As the Head of YCI, Scott is responsible for leading the team, developing the YCI growth strategy, and partnerships with the hotel industry, non-profits, funders and other strategic partners.
Prior to YCI, Scott undertook roles at Scholé (an operator of low cost private schools across Africa), Changemakers (a UK based youth leadership charity) and sales for a national chain of photography studios. He brings experience in fundraising, communications, team and programme management, as well as experience in front-line service delivery.
