Community Jobs Scotland (CJS) provides jobs for unemployed young people aged 16 - 29. The jobs are with third sector organisations and deliver community benefit. The jobs are for up to 1 year. The programme specifically targets care-experienced young people, carers, young people with disabilities, young people with convictions and early service leavers from the armed forces. Referral to the programme is through DWP or SDS.

Our programmes are tailored to meet the needs of individuals and employers within the context of the local labour market. We partner with the 900+ voluntary organisations across Scotland who offer work experience, training or specialist support to overcome barriers to deliver a variety of programmes on behalf of DWP, Scottish Government and other stakeholders.
