We are recruiting!

We are looking for an exceptional, innovative, community minded individual to join our employability training arm – shmuTRAIN.

The shmu Employability Support Worker will deliver employability programmes across the shmuTRAIN Employability strand of the organisation, with the focus of developing employability skills and supporting participants in the transition into employment, education or training.

Responsibilities will include the delivery of specific employability skill development sessions, assessment of our linked SQA accredited programmes, engagement with and support for participants throughout their journey with the organisation, and inputting evaluation and monitoring information for the strand.

Our shmuTRAIN programme provides a hands-on, engaging, motivational and experiential learning setting, offering practical and authentic activities through which the participants develop the personal and core skills that they require in order to move on to a sustained positive destination (employment, further education and/or training).

Media is used as a key tool for self-exploration and discovery, with trainees exploring their personal journey, while also exploring their aspirations for the future. In addition to encouraging a positive learning experience and skills development, the media component of the course also provides visual and audio evidence of the progress made by the young people participating in the programme.

Core skills development underpins all the course work, including improved communication skills, confidence, presentation skills, improved literacy and numeracy, raised academic achievement and increased readiness for the world of work.

This post is funded by Inspiring Scotland and Fairer Aberdeen Fund.
