The impact of the voluntary sector in creating employment

Michael Hollinger

Hosted by Michael Hollinger, SCVO, this webinar will showcase the impact employing young people, via Community Jobs Scotland (CJS) and other employability programmes, has on voluntary sector organisations and the transformational effect the sector can have on young people’s lives. 

With No One Left Behind (NOLB) shaping the employability landscape we’d be delighted if you join us to look at how the voluntary sector has succeeded in moving thousands of young people into employment through Community Jobs Scotland. You’ll have the chance to hear how the voluntary sector can and has supported young people, and others, into work and what employers have done to achieve this. 


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. The programme has already created jobs for 10,000 young people across the country working with over 1,000 partner organisations.

During this webinar we will be joined by local employability partnership members, The Third Sector Employability Forum (TSEF) members and Third Sector Interface (TSI) and partners who have delivered Community Jobs Scotland.

Our confirmed speakers are:

  • Geoff Leask, Chief Executive, Young Enterprise Scotland
  • Fiona Pirrie and Fiona Robson, Joint Chief Executive Officers, East Ayrshire Carers 
Who is the event aimed at?

This webinar is for anyone working within charities, social enterprises, employability organisations, and professionals and other stakeholders from Skills Development Scotland, Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), Local Authorities Employability, Local Employment Partnership teams and TSI.
