We are delighted to be working in a fresh initiative in partnership with Aberdeen City Council to support their “virtual school” initiative for care experienced young people, providing them and other young people in Aberdeen with opportunities to take part in volunteering placements and mentoring support as part of a pathway to improving their lives, and life chances.

As our Youth Engagement Manager, you will directly support young people with complex and challenging barriers to securing a positive pathway from school. This will include barrier identification and removal, supporting pre volunteering activity as well as volunteering placements in their local area. Young people will also be supported by a dedicated ProjectScotland volunteer Mentor, and post placement, your role will be to support a positive bridge to further employability programmes or opportunities.

You will identify, develop, and manage partnerships with charitable and not-for-profit organisations across Aberdeen and the surrounding areas, building an effective presence within the third sector interface, and across its networks. You will create diverse, high-quality, structured volunteering opportunities with partner organisations, ensuring that volunteering roles reflect the needs and interests of young people.
