This is an excellent opportunity for an unemployed young person aged 16-29 to learn new skills and start a career in fundraising and marketing. You don’t need any formal qualifications or experience just excellent communication skills and the passion to improve the lives of children and young people.

We are looking for someone that can fundraise and increase our supported base. If you are interested in applying, we would love to hear from you.

Organisation profile:

Dean and Cauvin Young People’s Trust is Edinburgh’s oldest charity, established in 1733 by merchants in the city to rescue children and young people from the streets. We now provide a range of high-quality services to young people in care to help them when they leave care. Young people in care often do not have a family network to support them and can be isolated when they move into the community. We need to raise money so we can continue to provide high quality support for these young people and their children.
