Are you a proactive, collaborative and target-driven individual with a proven record of delivering effective and engaging training to adults facing multiple disadvantages? Do you have a strong background of working to targets and recording information and statistics to enable effective performance monitoring?
If so, St Giles is looking for a highly motivated Trainer Assessor to join our team and play a vital role in our peer-led services, where you will provide a high-level service to individuals with lived experience, engaging and supporting them to achieve their Level 3 Certificate in Advice and Guidance and to progress onto further opportunities and sustainable employment.
About St Giles
An ambitious, well-established charity that helps people facing adversity to find jobs, homes and the right support they need.

About this exciting opportunity
As Trainer Assessor, you will liaise with St Giles staff and external partner organisations to identify and engage learners with the relevant skills, motivation and aptitude, before interviewing applicants, assessing learning and other needs and carrying out risk assessments.

This support will include planning and delivering a training programme that will lead to the achievement of Level 3 Certificate in Advice and Guidance, where you will assess and support learners through the qualification and monitor their progress towards timely completion and certification. Developing and maintaining the range of work placement opportunities, matching learners to placements and ensuring positive relationships with placements providers is a key aspect of this role, as is attending internal and external meetings and best practice seminars and undertaking all the administration necessary for tracking learner progress.
What we are looking for:
- TAQWA qualified or a willingness to work towards this
- Experience of delivering training to adults facing disadvantage and ability to support people who have multiple and complex needs
- A strong understanding of how to support and motivate learners with multiple complex needs
- Proven ability to apply a creative approach to planning activities and to adopt a range of approaches
- Excellent prioritisation, planning and communication skills, both verbal and written
- A flexible, collaborative and professional approach to your work
In return, you can expect a competitive salary, generous leave allowance, staff pension, flexible working, a mentoring programme, an advice and counselling service, access to clinical supervisions, season ticket loan and much more.
