Role

Join us to help create a social enterprise in every school in Scotland in the next 3 years.

Thank you for your interest in our Schools Coordinator role for the South of Scotland.

In their 10 year Strategy for Social Enterprise, the Scottish Government announced its ambition to see a social enterprise in every school in Scotland. We have been tasked with leading on the delivery of this goal.

“If you could create a business to solve any social issue in your community, country or the world, what would it be?” This is what we ask young people across Scotland every year. The result? Innovative social enterprises that are completely pupil-led and solving the issues that matter most to them.

From making sustainable crafts to funding community defibrillators to tackling local unemployment through computer coding classes, these young people are stepping up, taking action and demanding change.

Since the Social Enterprise in Education programme began we’ve had over 1,600 school engagements across Scotland and in that time we have seen young people change how they see themselves and grow hugely in confidence while building essential skills for the future. We work with nurseries, primary and secondary schools and schools for young people with additional support needs.

Your role will be to support this activity from our Edinburgh head office, supporting facilitators and social entrepreneurs to work with the schools to make this vision a reality. As part of a highly motivated team, this opportunity offers variety, satisfaction and a great opportunity to be part of something that is making a difference to Scotland.
