Organisation Profile: Elevate-Glasgow is a Public Social Partnership (PSP). Its aim is to improve the design of services for people in recovery from substance misuse regarding their employability and to enhance partner agencies’ commitment to collaboration and innovation in the delivery of support services.

Public Social Partnerships (PSPs) are strategic partnering arrangements, through which the public sector can collaborate with third sector organisations (voluntary, charity and social enterprise organisations) to share responsibility for designing services. A key principle of this approach is that services are designed co-productively with service users.

Glasgow Council on Alcohol (GCA) was founded in 1965 and is the oldest established Council on Alcohol in Scotland. GCA is a voluntary organisation working to reduce the harm caused by alcohol misuse through the provision of a range of high quality advice, information, counselling, support, prevention and education and training services.

Role: The Employability Support Worker is a role within the Elevate-Glasgow PSP team which offers a person-centred approach and service for individuals in recovery.

The Employability Support Worker will make a real impact to individuals’ day to day lives as they uniquely tailor their personal development, offer emotional and practical support and set realistic goals as part of their journey to employability opportunities.

The Employability Support Worker will be employed by, and based in, Glasgow Council on Alcohol (GCA). GCA is the lead partner of the PSP.

Experience in a previous employability/social/support work environment or voluntary sector role is essential. Candidates must have good communication skills, be flexible and have a positive attitude.

You will require a PVG check through Disclosure Scotland. The job is dependent on suitable references.

Please note; GCA has a high percentage of male participants and due to the nature of the referrals we receive there is a genuine occupational requirement to ensure that we recruit a Male Employability Support Worker. This would be a claim from GCA as an exception under the Equality Act 2010.
