Having successfully secured funding for the extension of existing and development of new projects across Scotland, we are in the exciting position of a major recruitment drive for Project Coordinators in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen – as well as an Operations Manager for our SIP funded programme, which currently consists of four projects.
WorkingRite delivers innovative projects designed to support young people with complex barriers to employment into sustained jobs, apprenticeships or purposeful learning. This is done through a combination of personal and social development group activity and matched, mentored work experience placements.
In any role, you will be confident, have excellent communication skills and be well organised. Above all, you must be enthusiastic and want to support young people.
