We’re recruiting – Participation Worker

The Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice (CYCJ) is recruiting for a Participation Worker to join its team, and help to improve how Scotland responds to children and young people who come into conflict with the law.

Do you have a track record of delivering effective participation activity and working with key stakeholders? Are you approachable, courageous, optimistic, compassionate, innovative and determined? Then this new and exciting opportunity to work as a key part of CYCJ is for you.


As a Participation Worker, you will support the delivery of an ambitious participation strategy for CYCJ, be part of the ‘Reimagining Justice with Children and Young People’ service, link with Youth Justice Voices and help embed participation and the voice of lived experience across the youth justice sector.

You will have proven ability in engaging and building effective working relationships at all levels and a demonstrated ability to work autonomously. You will be able to communicate effectively with children and young people, as well as partners from various settings.

The closing date for applications is March 30. Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to ross.a.gibson@strath.ac.uk.
