Phoenix Enterprises supports individuals to live and work independently as they choose, whatever their ability. Led by people with experience of disability and mental health issues, we are at the heart of local life - opening doors to opportunity, choice and support in the local Swindon area.
We are currently looking for a Project Coordinator to join our busy team. The Project Coordinator is a new role for Phoenix and we are keen to find the right individual to proactively roll out our Stepping Forward With Phoenix Project.
The Project Coordinator will be responsible for engaging with people in our local community. In particular working with the BME population, those who are trying to rebuild their lives after domestic abuse and young adults within the more deprived areas of Swindon. We have 18 places to fill for service users within these categories. Each placement will be for a maximum of 18 months and the Project Coordinator will be responsible for organising road shows within these areas, recruiting individuals for the project, supporting them with their pathway into employment throughout their time with Phoenix. This will be achieved by undertaking a range of activities from one to one support, job club sessions, CV writing, interview techniques, identifying training needs and eventually employment opportunities.
The successful person for this role will have proven experience of working with vulnerable adults and experience of working with people with learning difficulties or mental health issues.
We are looking for someone who is engaging, organised and has exceptional communication skills, as this role involves meeting with many different people and organisations across Swindon.
If you want to make a real difference to your community, then this is the role for you!
