Civil Service Local Scotland and our Vulnerable Young People Network Group are supporting the Movement to Work scheme. The longer term objective is to host successful Movement to Work placements in all Civil Service departments across Scotland.
To help us achieve this ambition we have just launched our M2W Network in Scotland with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) providing us with their experience in supporting vulnerable young people. HM Passport Office (HMPO) and the Ministry of Defence (MOD) are also keen to get involved and we would love many more to join us.
The network is an opportunity to share best practice and explore new ways of supporting the Movement to Work scheme. As a network we aspire to have an active membership from Civil Service departments across Scotland who will provide support to departments and colleagues in establishing successful placement opportunities in their work areas.
Have you got something to offer, want to join the network and get involved then please email the network representatives as listed below:

Movement to Work is a voluntary collaboration of leading employers, including the Civil Service, in the United Kingdom. It is helping young people aged 16 to 30 not in education, employment or training move closer to employment by providing quality work experience and learning opportunities. Placements run for anything between 2 and 6 weeks and aim to develop young people’s employability skills and create opportunities for them to be inspired and achieve their full potential.
