Eligibility for Community Jobs Scotland jobs falls into two categories.

1. Currently unemployed vulnerable 16-29 year-olds who are not accessing alternative Government support (e.g. Work Programme or Work Choice) and are either

  • a care leaver/care experienced
  • a carer
  • an Armed Forces early service leaver (have served less than 6 years)
  • a young person with conviction
  • a young person with a disability or health related issue

2. 16-29 year olds with disabilities or health issues on a Work Choice or Specialist Employment Support programme should engage directly with their provider.

Please note, if you have previously had a job funded through Community Jobs Scotland, you won’t be eligible for another Community Jobs Scotland post.

Contact your local Jobcentre Plus or Skills Development Scotland advisor who will check your eligibility and assist with applying to the vacancies.
