Through our award-winning Spear programme, we partner with local churches to work with unemployed young people and support them to get into work or education. 89% have at least one indicator of disadvantage, and over 75% of program completers are still in work a year later.
Together with various churches in London we are now recruiting for a Lead Coach to join the Spear team in early 2021.
This exciting role as a Lead Coach will involve delivering training in career skills and developing mindsets through coaching, as well as overseeing and taking responsibility for the recruitment of students to the programme. The successful applicant will be provided with professional training in coaching and Christian leadership, as well as extensive ongoing training and development.
We are looking for someone with great people skills, highly developed emotional intelligence and an enthusiastic and proactive temperament. Previous experience in training or coaching is preferred, and a confidence in leading and motivating groups is essential. Ideally, applicants would have been in work for a minimum of 2 years.
If you have a heart for transforming urban communities and seeing the direction of young people’s lives radically changed, this opportunity may be for you.
The programme is run in partnership with our partner churches and the role will require that the successful applicant attends becomes part of the partner church congregation. For more information on other Spear roles and partner churches, please get in touch with our People & Culture team.
