Job Title: Transformational Coach

Hours: 35 hours per week (fixed term contract until 31 March 2022)

Salary: NJC point 14 (£23,080) to 19 (£25,481)

Responsible to: Coaching Lead

We are looking for a passionate, hardworking and innovative individual to work as a Transformational Coach on the Age of Opportunity project. This is part of the Building Better Opportunities (BBO) project for Lancashire, funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

Age of Opportunity is a multi-partner project that aims to support people aged 50 plus who are most at risk of exclusion from the labour market. The project works with people to identify, reduce and/or remove barriers to engagement with the aim of supporting them back into education, employment and training.

The Transformational Coach is the single point of contact for participants and maintains regular and consistent contact to motivate them to remain engaged and move towards employment, education or training. The Coach is also responsible for the tracking, monitoring and meeting the contractual requirements of the project.

The successful candidate will have experience of working with individuals that services typically fail to reach. You will have knowledge of employment related support, have excellent communication skills and have good attention to detail.

Lancashire Mind is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community, particularly candidates with a lived experience of mental health conditions who fulfil all the criteria within the person specification.

We offer a workplace pension scheme, 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays), a sick pay scheme, paid emergency time off to care for dependents, regular supervision, and a variety of learning and development opportunities.

Please note: This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Deadline for applications: 9am on 16 March

Interviews will be held on 24 March via Zoom
