Role

WorkingRite delivers a unique work-based learning and mentored youth employment programme across Scotland, supporting young people through the crucial transition from adolescence to adulthood by equipping them with the skills, experience and confidence to secure and maintain a job. We believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to prove themselves in the workplace, regardless of their age, inexperience or qualifications.

Our programme, delivered nationally in partnership with locally based youth and community anchor organisations, is the practical pathway to a job or apprenticeship. Lasting an average of 16 weeks, our trainees learn on the job, alongside a mentor chosen from the workforce of that business to pass on what they know. The programme is a relationship-based model of learning. Quite simply designed to inspire young people to succeed: after all… everyone remembers their first boss.

After a period of expansion, the current strategy is to further develop the programme in key geographical areas, build on our partnership model and focus on the ‘hardest to reach’ young people.

If you share the mission of WorkingRite and have a drive to see positive social change, then this is a great opportunity for you play a role in the success of a charity with an excellent and unique model that makes a real difference to young people. We are currently recruiting for Trustee positions to fill a variety of areas of expertise including:

  • Youth work
  • Charity / Third Sector leadership
  • Fundraising
  • Campaigning
  • Public Policy
  • HR
  • Service user / lived experience
  • Finance
  • IT and Data Governance
  • Networking

We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities as an organisation committed to equal opportunities and promoting diversity
