Do you have a keen interest and experience of supporting people into employment? Could you guide and encourage our customers to develop their confidence, employability skills and offer appropriate information, advice and guidance to help them overcome their barriers to employment?

If so, then we have an exciting opportunity for an Employment and Skills Officer to join our Employment and Training team.  

As an Employment and Skills Officer you will offer appropriate information, advice and guidance to customers to help identify, overcome and remove barriers to work, including signposting to relevant support agencies and partners where appropriate.

You will also be expected to provide mentoring and coaching support (via a caseload management approach) to our customers, in order that they progress on the programme and to meet and achieve project outcomes and results.

To be successful in your application for this role you must have relevant knowledge and experience of working in an outreach community setting and supporting customers to overcome barriers to employment.

A thorough understanding of the barriers to learning among more vulnerable communities is required, alongside, experience in delivering programmes to overcome these barriers, to increase employability skills to move customers nearer to the labour market.

The right person will possess a minimum of an IAG Level 3 qualification (or equivalent mentoring qualification), or recent experience of delivering  IAG  to unemployed customers, with the ability to assess individual  needs and agree robust action plans and set targets to map their journey on the programme

The Employment & Training department are currently under represented by Male and BAME colleagues, therefore we particularly welcome applications from Male and BAME applicants.
