Happy to Talk Flexible Working

Can you deliver exceptional face-to-face customer experiences?

Do you easily build effective relationships with a wide range of people including customers and colleagues, with an ability to influence and negotiate?

Are you comfortable with dealing with challenging conversations, remaining confident and firm, whilst being respectful and considerate?

Do you have the skills to really listen to and recognise what customers really want and be committed to achieving the best possible outcome?

If your answer to these questions is yes, our client has an exciting new job opportunity that could be for you.

Background

Our client is one of the largest landlords in the South West and ranked in the top 50 of The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations to work for in the whole of the UK.  They care about their colleagues and this is evident in the sense of pride and the tireless work they do to support customers.

With around 13,000 properties in the south west, the majority in Bath, they are about much more than just somewhere to live.  Their experience extends to supporting vulnerable people with thoughtful and effective additional services and improving homes and estates, as well as building new places for people to live.

What you'll be doing

You’ll be working with 14 to 18 year olds, supporting them to overcome barriers they face in accessing education, training and employment opportunities by delivering activities out in the community.

You’ll be travelling around Bath and surrounding areas working with partners and recruiting customers to engage in the service, carrying out drop in sessions and running a programme of activities.

Whilst you will be part of the Work Wise team, this role is very autonomous so you will be encouraged to take control of your own workload and develop projects in line with the funding requirements.

You will be confident working one to one or with small groups, delivering activities to build confidence and self-esteem, teach and develop employability skills and support people to participate in meaningful occupation.  In addition to teaching budgeting and life skills, the project aims to bring out the best in people through creativity and outdoor activities.

More about you

You’ll have relevant experience in organising and delivering training to vulnerable people, together with an understanding of education, training, employment and supported housing or project based youth work.

You’ll be highly self-motivated and possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills to enable you to liaise effectively with colleagues in the Work Wise team and external agencies.

You’ll have passion about empowering young people, and/or have experience working in this area.

You will have a basic understanding of safeguarding for vulnerable adults and we will build on this by increasing your knowledge.

You will need to take up an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Check for this role which the company will do for you when you start.

When and where you'll be doing it 

You will be able to work flexibly, Monday to Friday, based on customers’ needs.

You’ll be based in Bath.

What will you get in return?

Our client thinks you’ll have a job that makes you feel good about what you’re doing – you will make a difference to customers’ lives every day. 

You’ll get:

  • A day’s leave on your birthday

  • 26 days annual leave per year (plus bank holidays) rising to 29 after 3 years’ service 

  • Opportunity to earn performance related pay

  • Company Pension contribution of up to 10%

  • Flexible Benefits including health care, gym membership, buying holiday

Our client recognises that as an organisation they are underrepresented in certain areas. Therefore they operate the disability confident scheme to encourage disabled applicants and welcome applications from candidates who are BAME or LGBTQ+.  They also welcome applications from customers.
