Comunn na Gàidhlig (CnaG) is currently seeking applications from Gaelic-speaking graduates who wish to work in areas of Gaelic development.
CnaG is also looking for organisations engaged in Gaelic development wishing to provide a year-long placement for a graduate.
The Scheme, which is funded by Bòrd na Gàidhlig, allows talented young Gaels take a first step into the workplace, providing them with a year-long placement, enabling them to access a wide range of Gaelic-related career opportunities and to work in a Gaelic environment.
The Scheme provides the graduates with a salary of £17k and they also have the opportunity to attend a 5-day residential personal development course which will be greatly beneficial to them and which will also enhance their CV.
The Scheme also greatly benefits the host organisations, in that they get talented young people full of confidence and enthusiasm, with specific skills enabling the organisations to expand their range of work and services.
The organisations are also given financial support to help with the costs of taking a graduate through the Scheme.
Graduates interested in participating in the Scheme can get further information and an application form at www.cnag.org.uk
