The Scotland Malawi Partnership is looking to recruit a committed, energetic and engaging Youth and Schools Officer to continue the Partnership’s outstanding youth and schools programme.

This is an essential and highly visible part of the Scotland-Malawi relationship and we require an individual who is able to think innovatively and strategically, with a high degree of professional autonomy, managing a number of different projects and maintaining key professional working relationships across the sector.

This roles exists to develop, support and maintain the Scotland Malawi Partnership’s engagement of young Scots and Scotland-Malawi school links. The Youth and Schools Officer works with a range of partners in organisations and schools across Scotland to engage young people aged 14-24 in the historic relationship between Scotland and Malawi. With a particular lens of Global Citizenship Education and the context of Learning for Sustainability within the Scottish Government’s Curriculum for Excellence, the role focusses on meaningfully including young people in the discussion of International Development within the relationship between Scotland and Malawi.

We are a small but highly effective staff team, working closely together and drawing on the energy, expertise and enthusiasm of hundreds of major organisations across Scotland working with Malawi.

This is an area in which one, passionate and effective individual can make a huge difference to the lives of thousands of young Scots and Malawians.
