Youth Officer (temporary)

Youth Officer (temporary)

Full or part-time

Following the success of our 2016 Youth Congress, where over 350 secondary students from across Scotland came together in Edinburgh to celebrate their Malawi links, develop skills and pledge actions, the Scotland Malawi Partnership will be hosting its 2018 Youth Congress in Glasgow on the 20th February. 

The Congress will launch a year of Scotland-Malawi youth events happening across Scotland for the Year of Young People 2018, giving the Youth Congress an ambitious ten-month legacy programme with events, media coverage and active youth engagement.

We are looking for someone to lead the delivery of this flagship event on 20th February, ensuring the event is delivered effectively and that hundreds of young people are engaged and inspired. There will also be support for the launch of our youth events for YOYP. The post will be for 2-3 months from January 2018, depending on availability. Ideally the role will be full-time but there is some flexibility for outstanding part-time candidates.
