We are looking for three Coaches to work long-term with a caseload of care experienced young people, building relationships and empowering them to develop fulfilling lives. Two Coaches will be mainly based in Bristol and the third in North Somerset.

Reboot West helps care leavers across the region to succeed in education, training, and work. It is an innovative programme, trialling the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to enable young people to develop confidence and wellbeing. We are expanding the programme and are seeking two new EET and Wellbeing Coaches to provide support to a caseload of Reboot young people (for up to three years).

Please find full details of how to apply via our Website in the advert below. The deadline for application submissions is 23:59, 02 November 2021.

We encourage you to have an informal chat with the project manager to discuss how your personal or professional experience and skills could be transferred to this role (see contact details below).

We are particularly keen to increase applications from Black and Minority Ethnic groups as they are currently under-represented in our organisation. We’d also like applications from people with relevant lived experience. If you are concerned about the application process, please give us a call.

What you will be doing:

  • By adopting a flexible and creative approach, you will enable young people to improve their confidence and wellbeing, supporting them to access and sustain employment and/or training. This might include meeting young people in café’s, parks, or even gyms!
  • Working in partnership with social services, and other support agencies you will form part of a passionate team of people surrounding each young person, providing holistic and specialist support adapted to meet the needs of each individual.
  • Being well organised and efficient, you will effectively record, and evidence outcomes achieved by young people, ensuring safe working practice, and contributing to our effort to secure future funding of the project.

You will be in the Reboot West team. Your line manager will be a Reboot West team leader.

What we are offering:

  • 30 days holiday plus the usual Public and Bank Holidays.
