Subsidised opportunities for third sector organisations to take on and train an unemployed young person.

Community Jobs Scotland (CJS) helps third sector employers across Scotland by providing funded opportunities to recruit a disadvantaged young person.

If your organisation is eligible to apply to host a CJS job, you can also get a range of other support from the initiative.

The initiative is funded by the Scottish Government and run by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations.

How employers benefit

Becoming a Community Jobs Scotland employer means your organisation can:

  • Improve the level of service your organisation can deliver
  • Provide mentoring or supervisory experience for existing members of staff
  • Widen the pool of people your organisation would usually recruit from
  • Help you to demonstrate your commitment to supporting young people
