Project Co-ordinator (3 posts)
North West Glasgow (1) and South Glasgow (2)
£25,500, full time

 

These exciting new posts will join our award winning Scottish youth employability charity, to support partnership programmes in the north west and south of Glasgow. The Pathfinder project is based in the North West of the city and is delivered between DRC Youth Project and WorkingRite. The South Glasgow project is delivered in partnership with New Gorbals Housing Association, Glenoaks Housing Association and Elderpark Housing Association.

Both projects support young residents within the project boundaries, Using WorkingRite’s relational work-based mentoring model, you will prepare young people for work placements with local businesses and support them in their placements while they learn new skills and gain confidence. It’s a simple model that works – 80% of our 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 able to:
• Self-start and work on own initiative
• Work as part of a high functioning team
• Engage and motivate young people
• Build strong relationships with businesses
• Work to targets
• Offer new and creative ideas
• Deliver accredited and certificated learning opportunities

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.

We will accept applications for both posts on one application form – simply note if you would like to be considered for one or both.

 

Deadline: 12 noon, Friday 11th December 2020. Interviews dates to be confirmed
