These positions have an attractive starting salary of £16,042.

While this will be targeted mainly at the Edinburgh and Lothians teams, other areas can also be notified if working with young people who are willing to travel.

Please can you alert the relevant teams to these vacancies and ask that they encourage eligible young people to apply (16-24, unemployed, who are capable of completing an SVQ Level 2 in one year). Young people contracted to work less than 16 hrs per week are also eligible. Unfortunately the Scottish Government cannot support to SVQ Level 3 young people who have already completed the SVQ Level 2 in Business Administration and they would therefore not be eligible.

Candidates should explain in their CVs specifically how they meet the competencies indicated in the post and should include a short covering letter. Closing date for both posts is Monday 2nd December 2013. Can I please ask that all CVs and covering letters are sent electronically to – a separate CV and Covering Letter is required for each post and candidates should clearly indicate which post they are applying for.

The department is keen that the successful candidate start asap, although security checks may take 6 weeks.
