New funding and working closely Edinburgh City Council

We’re delighted to be working with the Capital City Partnership (CCP) as part of the Network of Employability Support and Training (NEST) Vocational Training within Edinburgh and the surrounding regions.

As part of this we have been awarded some extra funding which will be used specifically for individuals from Edinburgh, the Lothians and Borders.

While the system is being set up there will be a crossover period but ultimately our participants should only notice an improvement in our service.

One of the advantages is that there is now a centralised jobs database for which we can easily refer our participants. The database is part of an integrated system that means we will have access to a wider community of organisations that can share user’s details within a controlled and safe environment allowing them to access services as they are required.

As a result of these changes we have two job announcements. Firstly, we have a vacancy for a Career Coordinator with pRESPECT Hub CIC

The job will involve interacting with participants in a 1:1 and group format, reviewing CVs, and helping organise the systems within the organisation that will help us develop and grow to help more individuals. There is more information available on our website:

Also CCP are looking for a Young Start Officer. From their site:

“Working in an integrated service, the Young Start Officer will engage with key stakeholders, a citizen’s panel, and delivery partners (Children1st and CHAI) who are working with the older members of families to tackle poverty and income maximisation.”

The focus will be on supporting young people with ethnic minority backgrounds to access services and linking them with employability providers to ensure that successful outcomes and positive destinations are achieved.

More details can be found at:

But you’ll need to be even quicker with this one as the deadline is tomorrow!

You can find more information about CCP and Joined Up for Jobs here and this is one of the main portals for jobs and workshops within this new eco-system.

We are excited to show more news in the coming weeks.
