£24,528 per annum
Fixed-term contract until March 2022
Our client is delighted to be a key partner in an innovative Worcestershire consortium who has been successful in securing £6 million of Lottery Building Better Opportunities (BBO) and European Social Investment Funding.
Worcestershire’s Building Better Opportunities project has been shaped by the Local Enterprise Partnership and The National Lottery Community Fund is matching funds from the European Social Fund (ESF) 2014-2020 to invest in local projects tackling the root causes of poverty, promoting social inclusion and driving local jobs and growth.
They are looking for a motivated, enthusiastic and experienced person to be a Building Better Opportunities Job Coach, to provide employment support to the project’s participants. The BBO project aims to promote social inclusion and combat poverty through providing support to those who are economically inactive or unemployed.
As a Job Coach, your role will be to contribute to the development and delivery of the BBO projects by providing individualised support to those furthest from the labour market. You will identify any barriers to employment and assist them to access individual grants to enable them to achieve the project outcomes. Keeping up to date with legislation and best practice on employment advice, welfare benefits and financial inclusion, you will collect job market information regarding job entry and skills requirements ensuring positive working relationships are maintained. Additionally, you will produce statistical reports, case studies and data as required relating to the provision of BBO project outcomes.
The successful candidate will have experience of delivering to a diverse range of participants with varying learning needs and levels as well as entry to employment programmes. With the ability to gather and report on financial and non-financial data, you will be a competent IT user and maintain occupational and professional competence at all times. An Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) qualification would be beneficial and you will hold a current driving licence along with having the use of your own vehicle.
An enhanced disclosure and barring service check is required.
**This will be funded by European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
Closing Date: Wednesday 4th March 2020
