Are you passionate, enthusiastic and motivated to support women who have touched the criminal justice system? We are looking for the right person to deliver our services which will support the women as they gain qualifications, work experience, life skills and have the opportunity to raise their self-esteem and confidence. You will be part of a team which deliver a suite of programmes which includes: Making Positive Changes, our highly successful training programme; RISE our mentoring programme and our work experience opportunities where the women join us on our regular production days. You are likely to have existing experience and contacts within this sector in Scotland and you will have experience of working with women which may include those who have touched the criminal justice system. Our services complement each other and provide holistic support which the women can access on a stand-alone basis or in conjunction with the other services as they journey towards making positive changes in their lives and fulfilling their potential. Liking chocolate is a bonus, what is more important is that you have the knowledge, skills and experience: want to work in a positive learning environment and are empathic with our values and team spirit.
Positive Changes (Scotland) CIC is an organisation which supports women who have touched the Scottish criminal justice system towards making positive changes in their lives and reaching their potential. We use the vehicle of making and selling exquisite chocolates, branded Grace Chocolates changing lives to engage with the women and generate revenue. 100% of profits are reinvested to support our services.
By engaging with us the women have the opportunity to gain work experience, write a Personal Development Plan, improve their CV and gain workplace skills which will help lower barriers they face when looking for fulfilling employment, which for many is an aspiration. Each woman is encouraged to develop their own Personal Development Plan to help her set goals and aims which is her pathway towards fulfilling work. The women are involved in all aspects of the making and selling the chocolates and our customers include: individuals for gifts and treats; weddings; corporate organisations for serving and giving as gifts to their clients; restaurants and event companies; and other Public Sector organisations for gifts and serving to their guests.
