Intercultural Youth Scotland (IYS) are a grassroots, youth-led organisation supporting and advocating for young Black people and young people of colour in Scotland. We offer specialist support to Black and POC young people and advocate across Scottish Government for their voices to be heard. IYS' services include a fully-fledged youth and music program; an education program delivering anti-racism education in secondary schools; a mental health program offering free support to young Black people and People of Colour; as well as the Restless Natives employability program which the Restless Natives Manager will lead.
Restless Natives offers holistic, specialist support to Black and POC young people and school leavers to help them become work-ready, reach positive destinations, or move into further and higher education. Restless Natives also supports employers to ensure that they’re doing all they can to improve their workplaces for young Black people and young People of Colour. Join our Restless Natives team as manager to lead the delivery and development of our Restless Natives employability programme.
The Restless Natives Manager is responsible for the management of the delivery of the current Restless Natives programme in Edinburgh and Glasgow, leading a small team of practitioners. The Restless Natives Manager plays a key role in helping to establish employability partnerships and advocating for the needs of Black and POC young people to governing bodies. While the Restless Natives program in its current state has been running for two years, we are keen to take the program to new heights – we want to build a long-term, sustainable infrastructure to support Black and POC young people in becoming work-ready and improving their lives.
