Hand Picked Development Manager - Dundee/Perth

New job opportunity!

Thursday, 8 October 2020

Hand Picked from CR Smith is looking to recruit a Development Manager to help drive growth and diversification of its successful youth employability programme in the Dundee/Perth areas.

Hand Picked aims to reduce unemployment amongst young people in Scotland. We do this through delivery of our three main strategies:

  1. Connect unemployed 16-24yr olds to employers by seeking 90 day employer sponsored jobs and by supporting them to apply for mainstream employment opportunities.
  2. Inspire, motivate and upskill unemployed young people to secure employment using their own networks by delivering employability workshops and metoring support through delivery of our Hand Picked Academy programme.
  3. Educate and raise confidence in school pupils about their future in the workplace by encouraging likeminded employers to delivery the Hand Picked for Schools programme in their local High Schools.

The ideal candidate will be expected to deliver on all three strategies and will come from a recruitment or training background. You will have exceptional candidate and client management skills and be highly motivated, passionate and have the ability to inspire others. 

A driving licence is essential and you should be comfortable travelling by car to different locations on a regular basis.
