PEEK- Possibilities For Each and Every Kid is an award winning children and young people’s charity operating across Glasgow since October 2000.   The organisation was initially founded by a local minister – Rev. Irene Bristow, St Thomas Gallowgate Church in response to the deprivation in the area, and the lack of opportunities for youngsters. For over 18 years: We have contributed to improving the lives of children and young people; We have witnessed first-hand youngsters achieve goals, have aspirations and increase their life expectations and have become an established part of the communities we serve,  supporting thousands.

Our mission: ‘ Is to improve the life chances of children and young people by unlocking their potential and journeying alongside them, as they Play, Create and Thrive’.

Current: This is an exciting time for the charity as we continue to grow and develop responding to the changing needs of our communities.  As a result of a recent restructure and successful funding we have 5 new roles and 2 existing roles vacant.

Staff Benefits: People are at the heart of everything we do and below outlines some of our team benefits:

  • We have a generous holiday entitlement of 20 days holiday a year plus 14 days public holiday. We also close the office over the Christmas period giving staff an extra 3 days as a special thank you for working hard throughout the year. We offer, to all staff, an auto enrolment pension scheme with Aviva. We contribute 6% of staff salary. We believe that staff should be encouraged to think positively about their personal training and development needs. All staff are entitled to two days paid leave to volunteer or undertake personal development.

Roles: We are looking for a number of self-motivated, organised and passionate individuals to join our established team.
