CEMVO Scotland is a leading national intermediary in the EM 3rd Sector, our aim is to build the capacity and sustainability of the EM 3rd Sector and its communities. Our work is underpinned by race equality and we seek to level the playing field for ethnic minority individuals through empowerment initiatives and support.

We are looking for an employment coordinator to work on the Young Confident and Connected (YCC) Programme funded by The National Lottery Community Fund (Young Start). As the YCC Coordinator you will work with 15 ethnic minority young people a year providing a range of support in their journey towards, and into, employment.

You will work closely with young clients each year, profiling their skills and experiences, and using coproduction principles, enable them to set goals and achieve them, build their confidence through PX2 training or equivalent, upskill through training and placements and achieve employment.

You will have significant working knowledge of employability issues faced by EM young people and help them overcome barriers to employability. You will also have a strong understanding of the labour market and employer requirements.

You will work closely with local partners, including employers, training providers and other stakeholders, developing professional relationships that will offer a diverse range of experiences and opportunities for those on the programme. You will be able to collect and collate qualitative and quantitative data to provide an overall picture of EM young people and employment based on their lived experience and encapsulate that to develop future funding opportunities.
