How does it work for participants/employees?

  • The programme is open to Glasgow City residents aged 16 to pensionable age who are not currently working but are eligible to work in the UK. 

  • Participants must be ready for work but have barriers to employment that make it difficult for them to secure a job independently. 

  • As an employee on a placement, you’ll get valuable experience of work while being paid at least the Real Living Wage (£10.90 per hour). 

  • To help you get the most out of your placement, you’ll also have support, including somebody to help you think about your goals and access any training you need.

  • Places in the programme are limited, and we will prioritise people who can benefit the most – people who are ready for work but unable to secure a job.

How does it work for employers/organisations?

  • Placements are open to public, private and third (or voluntary) sector employers in the city. At least 50% of the posts will be in the third or voluntary sector. 

  • Placements are limited, and we will prioritise organisations that can provide a quality placement opportunity and where there is a high chance of the employee sustaining employment at the end of the programme. 

  • There is also a £250 allowance for the employee to undertake relevant vocational or industry-specific qualifications.

  • Employers will also receive support from partners with the candidate’s recruitment and any adjustments necessary for the employee to engage in work
