At U-evolve we support young people aged 11-18 in North Edinburgh to build confidence, resilience and self belief. We believe all young people deserve happy and fulfilling futures, no matter where they are starting from.

We provide 1:1 therapeutic coaching with young people, supporting them to reach their goals and work through the trauma they've experienced. We also run topic- based workshops and group work, such as mental health awareness, transition workshops and body image for young people.

We also work with the adults in young people’s networks, ensuring that they can effectively and compassionately support young people through the challenges they may be facing. We want to build resilience and emotional literacy to create a culture that fosters good mental health and wellbeing for all. We work in partnerships with schools and youth groups. We provide training, workshops and opportunities for peer support to parents, carers and frontline professionals.

This support has never been more needed, and we have seen a significant demand in our services as a result of the emotional pressures of Covid-19.

We are in a grassroots charity in a period of growth and diversification and thanks to support from the Adapt and Thrive fund, are now recruiting an Operations Coordinator to support the development of our next phase. Reporting directly to the CEO, you will support the day to day running of the charity, as well as leading our fundraising programme. This includes income generation from grants, trusts and foundations, and community and developing our donor programme.

This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for an independent, driven and creative individual to join a small, committed team who deliver incredible impact for young people in Edinburgh.
