Job description


The Shaw Trust, in tandem with government and the broader employment support community across the UK, is working hard to make sure we support as many individuals as possible to get and keep a job. We believe that everyone who needs help and support to attain their employment goals should be able to access it as soon as possible, and that support should reflect their individual needs.

To help us in this mission, we are looking to expand our employability services and are looking for Team Leaders to work on our West London Alliance Work & Health Programme Job Entry – Targeted Support (WLA WHP JETS) Programme.

As an Employment Advisor (WLA WHP JETS) you will be providing advice and support to guide and encourage participants to overcome barriers to employment and achieve realistic job goals. This will be mainly delivered remotely via phone, video conference and other digital channels.

Reporting to a Team Leader, you will be expected to manage a caseload of participants, managing their journey to employment, offer advice and direction to enable participants to access the support they need. The role will also involve re-building participant confidence and self-efficacy following a period on unemployment.

Shaw Trust operates on a national level with over 2,000 staff and 1,000 volunteers. We work with the government, local authorities, combined authorities, health service providers, employers, and other stakeholders – including the Education and Skills Funding Agency, Department for Work and Pensions, clinical commissioning groups and NHS Trusts.

Ideally, you will be inclusive and embrace our culture and values, putting those we serve at the heart of everything we do. You will consistently deliver high quality services to support our communities and beneficiaries. Additionally, an understanding of government funded employment programmes, such as the Work and Health Programme, would be an advantage.
