CJS aim to create 700 jobs for young people in Scotland’s third sector

An employment service run by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) is looking for third sector employers across Scotland to benefit young people and their communities.

Community Jobs Scotland (CJS) is an employability service which aims to support vulnerable unemployed young people by getting them into work with third sector organisations.

CJS already works with hundreds of employers across Scotland, and so far they have filled 7,670 vacancies and aim to create a further 700 jobs by March 2018.

Anita Boyle, Chief Executive of LAMH Recycle Ltd, has been a CJS employer for years: “I really feel it’s a benefit for the youngsters, especially people who have never worked and this is their first step on the ladder. We can gradually build up their confidence and get them job ready. We’re in contact with people who came through years ago who still say if it hadn’t been for their time on Community Jobs Scotland they would never have realised their potential and known that they were able to do it.”
