Job Title: Transformational Coach x 2 (one post in Pendle, one post in Blackburn with Darwen)
Hours: 21 hours per week (fixed term contract until 31 December 2022)

We have an exciting opportunity to work as a Transformational Coach on the Invest in Youth 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.
We are looking for two individuals who have significant experience of working with BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) young people. The successful candidates will understand the communities they will be working within (Pendle/ Blackburn with Darwen) and the barriers to engagement BAME young people may face. Fluency in languages such as Urdu and Punjabi would be advantageous.
Invest in Youth is a multi-partner project that aims to support young people aged 15 to 24 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 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.
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: Lancashire Mind is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community, particularly candidates with lived experience of mental health conditions who fulfil all the criteria within the person specification. Due to the focus of these roles, applicants from the BAME community, and those who can speak Punjabi, Urdu or Bengali would be advantageous.
Deadline for applications: 9am on the 6th December
Interviews will be held on 9 December via Zoom
