Our client is delighted to be a key partner in an innovative Worcestershire consortium who has been successful in securing £1 million of Lottery Building Better Opportunities (BBO) and European Social Investment Funding.

As a Job Coach, your role will be to contribute to the development and delivery of the projects through providing an individualised support service to referred participants to those who are economically inactive or unemployed and assist them in accessing work, education and training. You will identify any barriers to employment and assist them to access individual grants to enable them to achieve the project outcomes. Keeping up to date with legislation and best practise on employment advice, welfare benefits and financial inclusion, you will collect job market information regarding job entry and skills requirements ensuring positive working relationships are maintained. Additionally you will produce statistical reports, case studies and data as required relating to the provision of BBO project outcomes.
 
The successful candidate will need to have an Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) qualification, preferred level 4, and a full, current driving licence and use of own vehicle.
 
You will have experience of delivering to a diverse range of participants with varying learning needs and levels as well as entry to employment programmes. With the ability to gather and report on financial and non-financial data, you will be a competent IT user and maintain occupational and professional competence at all times.
