WorkingRite delivers a unique work-based learning and mentored youth employment programme across Scotland, supporting young people through the crucial transition from adolescence to adulthood by equipping them with the skills, experience and confidence to secure and maintain a job. We believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to prove themselves in the workplace, regardless of their age, inexperience or qualifications.
Our programme, delivered in partnership with locally based youth and community anchor organisations, is the practical pathway to a job or apprenticeship. Lasting an average of 16 weeks, our trainees learn on the job, alongside a mentor chosen from the workforce of that business to pass on what they know. The programme is a relationship-based model of learning. Quite simply designed to inspire young people to succeed: after all… everyone remembers their first boss.
After a period of expansion, the current strategy is to further develop the programme in key geographical areas, build on our partnership model and focus on the ‘hardest to reach’ young people.
If you share the mission of WorkingRite and have a drive to see positive social change, then this is a great opportunity for you play a role in the success of a charity with an excellent and unique model that makes a real difference to young people.

Lothian Autistic Society is the primary provider of support for school age children with autism in Edinburgh and the Lothians. Our Holiday Activity Programmes and Saturday Adventure Teams offer great opportunities for autistic children to get together and socialise, learning through playing together how to cope with a very confusing world. We also offer shorter opportunities for young people to learn and grow through Basecamp, Basecamp2, and Branch Out. Alongside this their families get a much needed break from caring. The Society was founded by parents and our families remain at the core of our planning and thinking. Working with them to provide the best care possible for their children remains key to our success.
We are looking for someone to fill one of the key roles in the society. You will be responsible for all the society’s direct services across the Lothians, making sure they meet the needs of the children and young people who attend and their families and carers, and the expectations of commissioners, funders and regulatory bodies. Operating under the guidance of the Chief Executive Officer you will be responsible for making sure services run smoothly, efficiently and effectively.
You will need to have a good understanding of what it means to run services for vulnerable children, a willingness to work flexibly (it is important that you are available during a large part of the school holiday periods and weekends) and a strong commitment to making life better for autistic children and their families. You will be the Society’s lead Officer on Child Welfare and the ‘fit’ manager in the context of the Society’s registrations with the Care Inspectorate. You will be line manager for 2 members of staff and lead on the recruitment of up to 100 sessional workers.
You will have the opportunity to join a small, dedicated and successful team and lead a great company of sessional workers across the Lothians. We have a number of new initiatives planned for the next few months and you will have a major part in making these happen. This is a great opportunity to play an important role in acknowledging and promoting our achievements with us.
