Fixed term to 31 December 2021

The Village Coach (Coach) is a supportive role to help people to reach their potential who may be socially excluded, vulnerable and have complex needs.  You will need to take a holistic approach with participants, helping them to identify their needs and assisting with solutions.  You will provide a patient and understanding point of view, recognising that the participants may need ongoing support, as you guide them, using motivational interview techniques, to identify individually tailored SMART goals.

This role is about communicating effectively with participants, listening to their needs and responding accordingly.   You will need to build and maintain trust through their journey with the Inclusion Cornwall Hub, working at their pace, encouraging and empowering them to make positive changes for themselves. 

You will work on a one to one basis with participants, using different forms of engagement, as appropriate, which will include using IT, meeting in local communities and in people’s homes. You will have experience of assessing, building goal orientated action plans and triaging.  You will work alongside communities, groups, other partners, local businesses and services to ensure the best outcome for the participant.

The Coach will be a constant point of contact for the participant throughout their journey.  You will need to understand where and when to bring in other services whilst continuing to provide support and encouragement.  You will need to help the participant understand and identify for themselves how they have developed and grown, recognising their own empowerment, increased strength and self-esteem.
