Glasgow Wood Recycling, with funding by the National Lottery through the BIG Lottery Fund, is delighted to be recruiting three new posts, each offering three year contracts, to deliver its innovative new training programme.

The posts are;

  • Development Worker (salary £21k)
  • Programme Trainer (salary £21k)
  • Workshop Manager (salary £23k)

Glasgow Wood Recycling’s “Making Wood Work” project will engage those furthest removed from the labour market to overcome barriers to employment, and obtain sustainable jobs within both a social enterprise environment and within local businesses. Through a 12 week programme the project will train people and support trainees to engage with job seeking services and local employers. The project will support and train 144 long term unemployed individuals in a range of woodworking, recycling and health and safety skills, improving prospects of employment by providing skills that will strengthen their links to the labour market. GWR will also work with local employers to identify taster placements, work experience and employment opportunities.

Glasgow Wood Recycling is a social enterprise and charity established in 2007 and committed to reducing the amount of wood needlessly going to landfill by finding creative ways to recycle and reuse this valuable natural resource.  Through these activities we provide volunteer and training opportunities to local people, as a practical way of tackling poverty and social exclusion.

Closing date for applications 21/11/2014

Interviews will be held w/c 01/12/2014
