No-one Left Behind is a key Scottish Government initiative aimed at supporting the most disadvantaged people in Scotland to secure and sustain employment.

This Intermediate Labour Market (ILM) programme is designed to support people aged 25+ who have been out of work for 12 months or more to re-join the workplace through a paid work placement.

A range of opportunities have been created across the Public and Third sectors, with each placement featuring a blend of training and on-the-job learning.

WORK PATTERN AND DURATION

Placements will typically last 6 month, up to 30hrs per week with options to negotiate a work pattern which is client centred.
