This strand of Community Jobs Scotland aims to support young people aged 16-19 into sustainable employment.

We aim to create 800 jobs within a wide range of third sector organisations throughout Scotland.

Jobcentre Plus & Skills Development Scotland advisers will assess eligibility.

The jobs must:

  • be within the third sector
  • be additional
  • offer community benefit
  • pay at least minimum wage
  • offer a minimum of 25 hours of paid work each week
  • last at least 39 weeks for 16-17 year olds
  • last at least 26 weeks for 18-19 year olds

The young person becomes an employee of the employing organisation and is covered by the same policies and procedures as any other staff member.

The maximum funding available to cover the costs of the wage and employers NI is £5,000.
