We are looking for a Youth Engagement Officer to play a critical role in making sure that young carer and young adult carer voices are heard. We are looking for a creative, inclusive worker who is equally comfortable working directly with young people, as they are telling truth to power.

This important role will support a diverse range of young people, delivering and supporting young carers and young adult carers to engage in the Scottish Youth Parliament, the media and other key stakeholders.

In this role you will be responsible for the development and delivery of our flagship event, the Scottish Young Carers Festival. Working with our partners at Scottish Government, you will design an event programme for over 500 young carers and their workers. This will include activities in consultation, wellbeing and information, and most importantly, be lots of fun.
