This is a Project Scotland vacancy. We have a fantastic employability rate/positive destination figure of 78% (within 6 months of placement). This is because we don’t just do volunteering -we also provide a whole arm of employability support whilst our volunteers are on placement, they get a mentor who is an adult volunteer that spends an hour a week with a young person and helps with things like confidence, goal setting, career planning, CV building, interview skills and they get to attend a series of employability workshops aimed at on improving 16-30year old’s employability. We even provide travel expenses.

We will provide all necessary tools & equipment and train you on how to use them safely. If you see yourself as a bit of an eco-warrior, then this is an ideal role to get you started on your green path.
We are looking for someone who wants to work outside, even if it is raining! You need to have a level of physical fitness, as it is manual work, and be keen to learn. Health & safety needs to be taken seriously as you will be using power tools.
