Job description

Job Title: Progress Your Potential  

Grade: Band 2

Location: Various Across NHS Lothian

Contract Duration: Fixed Term – 6 Months

Hours:  Part Time – 30 hours   

Closing Date: Thursday 30th June 2022

We are delighted to announce we are recruiting to Progress Your Potential, a new and exciting employability programme involving a 6-month paid work placement within NHS Lothian.

The programme provides the opportunity to gain essential skills for the workplace and gain a qualification that will support any future career or education progression. This will be provided by the experience gained in the workplace and completing education provided by Edinburgh College and Tree of Knowledge.

A variety of roles will be available including:

  • Administrative Assistants
  • Play Workers
  • Activity Co-ordinators

To be considered for these roles, you must:

  • Be between 16 – 24 years of age
  • Be living in the following council areas: City of Edinburgh Council, Midlothian Council, East Lothian Council or West Lothian Council
  • Have lived experience of the care system in Scotland (e.g., experience of the hearings system, received support from a social worker and possibly lived away from your biological parents. This can include kinship care, foster care, secure care, residential care or being looked after at home)

Due to the nature of the program, the transition to employment within the NHS and the education you will be expected to complete, it would be beneficial for any applicant to already have a mentor or key worker they work with at the time of application. However, if you do not have anyone already in place, this does not mean you cannot apply.

We are recruiting to these posts based on your potential to contribute to our high-quality patient care as well as the demonstration of personal values aligned to those of our organisation: .
