Project Co-ordinators, South Glasgow
£25,500, full time

 

We are looking for two Project Coordinators to join the South Glasgow team to extend the project and change the life prospects for many of the most disadvantaged young people in these communities. Most will be struggling to overcome significant barriers in their lives.

These posts will support young tenants of New Gorbals, Glen Oaks and Elderpark Housing Associations and young residents from South Glasgow within the project boundaries. You will recruit, coach and mentor young people towards jobs and future careers, using WorkingRite’s successful working-based mentoring model. It’s a simple model that works – 80% of young people who complete the WorkingRite programme progress to full time jobs or apprenticeships.

As the employability door in these young peoples’ lives, you will be:
• recruiting their business-mentors within small business employers across Aberdeen
• coaching and training them in the confidence, skills and competencies they will need in the adult world of work
• working alongside our existing experienced Project Co-ordinator for south Glasgow who will support you throughout

You will be confident, have excellent communication skills, and be well organised. Above all, you must be enthusiastic, motivational and effective when working with young people with high support needs.

 

Deadline: 12 noon, Friday 9th October 2020. Interviews dates to be confirmed later in October
