To Register

Community Jobs Scotland (CJS)

“Community Jobs Scotland (CJS) is an employability programme delivered by SCVO which works with voluntary sector employers to create job opportunities for unemployed people aged 16 to 29.

The programme has a focus on those most disadvantaged in the labour market – those who are care experienced or are carers themselves, early Armed Forces service leavers, those with criminal convictions and those who have disabilities or other health issues – and has already created jobs for 9,500 young people across the country.”


Becoming a Community Jobs Scotland employer has many benefits, including:

• improving the level of service your organisation can deliver

• providing a mentoring or supervisory experience for existing members of staff

• widening the pool of people your organisation would usually recruit from

• help you to demonstrate your commitment to supporting young people


A fund of up to £8,984.61 or £5,840 respectively is available for each completed 40 or 26 week CJS contract. You will receive an upfront payment after the start paperwork is completed. The remaining funding is paid monthly in arrears. This is to help cover:

• employee wage

• employer’s NI

• pension contributions

• support and supervision

• induction

• on-the job training

A limited fund is also available that can be used to support employers towards paying the Living Wage.
