Inspiring Young Voices are excited to be recruiting an Inclusion Worker for their youth-led Inspire Highland project.

The role of the Inspire Highland Inclusion Worker will be to develop a voice for trans/non-binary young people, 12 – 25 in Highland.

Do you identify as trans/non-binary and are living in the Highlands?

Are you passionate about giving LGBTQ+ young people a voice and enabling them to be actively involved in decisions that affect their lives, to speak out about their rights and to campaign for change?

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of trans/non-binary young people in Highland?

We are looking for a special individual with energy and enthusiasm for youth participation, campaigning and social activism who is passionate about enabling the direct voice of young people who experience challenges in their lives.

The young people we work alongside told us:

“We would like a warm, welcoming and vibrant person who is friendly and easy to talk to.”


Work alongside the young people from Inspire Highland and Inspiring Young Voices’ Participation Lead to expand our youth-led collective voice for LGBTQ+ young people in Highland, particularity those who identify as trans/non-binary.

This work would be delivered under Inspiring Young Voice’s Inspire Highland project: established in December 2018 due to an expressed need by young people with disabilities and additional support needs (ASNs) to have their voices heard, Inspire Highland is a creative, fun youth-led project led to promote the rights, participation and inclusion of young people up to the age of 25 who are facing challenges in their lives.

Due to the specialist nature of this role, this post requires an individual who identifies as trans/non-binary and who understands the culture* and complexities of being part of the gender non-conforming/diverse community.

*Gender identity-based cultures are subcultures and communities composed of people who have shared experiences, backgrounds, or interests due to common gender identities.
