Role Purpose
The purpose of this role is to lead WorldSkills UK’s public affairs activities ensuring that the organisation is well placed and credible with external stakeholders and that the achievement and impact of WorldSkills UK’s strategic objectives can be effectively communicated.

WorldSkills UK is an independent charity and a partnership between employers, education and governments. Together, we are raising standards in apprenticeships and technical education so more young people get the best start in work and life.

We are part of WorldSkills, a global movement supported by over 80 member countries, which celebrates young people achieving world-class standards in the biennial ‘skills olympics’. As the only skills charity which can bring this global benchmarking back into the UK, we have the unique assets, resources and networks to help raise training standards and improve young people’s technical and soft skills-set and resilient mindset to ever higher standards.

We inspire young people via our careers advice resources to choose excellence through apprenticeships and technical education as a prestigious career route on their path to reaching their potential, whatever their background. We develop excellence in young people by testing and assessing their skills and knowledge against their peers through our national and international competitions programmes, improving their confidence and potential. We innovate to mainstream global excellence to help improve the standard of teaching, training and assessment through international benchmarking to help young people, employers and the UK economy succeed.
