About the role:

Essentially, you'll use a coaching approach to help customers identify where they want to get to in life and how they can build on their strengths, gifts and talents to help them get there.

You'll spend most of your time out on your patch, getting to know your customers and the local community. It's no 9 to 5 job - you'll need to be flexible and ready to work with your customers, when it's right for them.

You'll help to ensure your customers understand their role in the relationship, the impact and consequences of the decisions they make and the actions they take - including paying their rent. You'll effectively be running a GBP1m business!

You'll have honest and sometimes difficult conversations with your customers that will enable them to make more informed choices and better equip them to deal with life's challenges. Whether it's about changing behaviour to help the customer manage their tenancy better or prevent issues of anti-social behaviour, getting into work, being better with money, a healthier lifestyle or improving skills - having coaching conversations is the essential ingredient.

You'll have a great profile in your community and you'll identify and get to know various agencies, groups and businesses in the local area that might help your customers achieve what they want out of life. You'll proactively make connections between customers and these organisations and you'll use your coaching skills to help customers make these connections for themselves.

About you:

- You're curious and don't shy away from having difficult conversations
- You see the best in people and have the capacity to coach (if coaching is new to you we have training to support you and dedicated 1-2-1 support for your progression as a coach)

- You have a track record of being self-motivated, flexible and able to manage your own workload
- You're a strong positive contributor even when the going gets tough (high-maintenance mood hoovers need not apply)
- You already have experience of housing and tenancy issues, money advice or skills coaching - you'll be keen and quick to learn
- You have a reputation for first rate influencing, negotiating and relationship building skills
- The ideal applicant will live in close proximity to the above location
- A full driving licence and access to a vehicle is essential
