Forth Sector is a charity that provides training, employability services and work experience for people disadvantaged from mainstream employment. We own St Jude’s Laundry and have an experienced Employability Support team.
This means we have an exciting and wide range of opportunities for beneficiaries, paid staff, volunteers and board members to work for us.
Forth Sector believes in and promotes equal opportunities for everyone. We welcome beneficiaries, paid staff, volunteers and board members from all backgrounds and encourage diversity.
Forth Sector has ‘Positive about Disabled People’ status.
From employment advisers to business consultants, Forth Sector offers a varied and challenging range of jobs across its teams, Employability Team, corporate function and facilities teams.
We offer good terms and conditions including a non-contributory pension scheme, employee assistance programme and occupational sick pay scheme.
Forth Sector has supported hundreds, if not thousands, of clients over the years. We aim to support many more and we will do this by running sustainable businesses that offer real work training opportunities.
This means that we can offer opportunities to volunteers in many different and exciting areas in our businesses and behind the scenes in our support functions. Wherever you offer your help you will be part of a team working towards two important aims:
Supporting our clients in flourishing and supportive work environments
Furthering our business objectives to create successful and sustainable businesses
In return for this invaluable contribution Forth Sector offers volunteers development opportunities and new experiences in a dynamic and innovative organisation.

Forth Sector is governed by a board of trustees and directors who are responsible for the leadership of the organisation. This means they are responsible for:
Determining the organisation’s strategy
Ensuring the organisation is financially viable
Ensuring the organisation complies with its company and charity law
Our directors are unpaid volunteers from the public and private sectors, with both working and retired members.
We have a skilled and committed board of directors but we would welcome enquiries from anyone with, in particular, a background in employability or business, specifically running and growing small businesses.
