Manager

Zoe Hubbard

Office Manager

I am really excited about recently joining the Canongate Youth Team as Office Manager and am very much looking forward to getting stuck in! There is a great energy about working here and staff have made me feel very welcome. ! I feel this opportunity is a great amalgamation of my passion for youth work, which includes street work and drop-in style sessions, and my more recent administration skills. In my spare time (what’s that?) I enjoy drawing/painting and making my own jewellery. My degree is in Silversmithing & Jewellery Design, something I don’t get to indulge in too often!

Debbie Ure

Employability & Training Services Manager

My role is to support the ETS team to be the best it can be and liaise with the funders/partners. I have worked at CY since January 2007 and the time has flown in. I am thrilled when I hear from previous trainees and find out how they are doing. My job involves a lot of paperwork and report writing so the best thing for me is when I am chatting and having a laugh with the fantastic young people we have here at CY.

Susie McIntyre

Youth Development Worker (Employability)

I work as part of the employability team. I provide employability support to young people aged 14-19 which includes running a weekly drop in at CY, one to one support in local schools and delivering training. I also work in the youth clubs. I enjoy being part of the team here at Canongate Youth and being able to support young people to realise their full potential. I like the variety the job brings!

Catherine McMillan

Employability & Training Support Worker

I have worked at Canongate Youth since May 2014. The best part of this job is seeing the change in young people from the start of the course to the end. I also have a great team that I work with and there is never a dull moment in the CY office!

Suzanne Quinan

Youth Development Worker (Early Intervention)

I have worked at Canongate for too many years to mention- let's just say I've been here the longest and I can't go onto the front street without meeting a stream of young people or family members past and present. Over the years my role has been that of a generic youth worker working both in our open community provision and providing services to local schools through group work and one to one support. Over the past year, my role has changed slightly to having more of a focus on the work that we do within schools whilst still maintaining some contact through our open provision. I love having the opportunity to work in such a positive way with young people and hope to continue to do so for many more years!

Clare Jameson

Youth Development Worker (Programme)

I have worked at CY since September 2007. My role involves coordinating and managing our programme of events/activities/clubs, managing sessional staff and looking after volunteers. My favourite thing about working at CY is that no day is the same and you never quite know what you will be involved with next.

Activity Agreement Coach

I work as Canongate Youth's Activity Agreement Coach. This involves engaging with young school leavers between the ages of 16-19, working with them on their employability skills and mental health. I love the role as it gives such diversity, and no two days really feel the same!
