Do you want to WOW customers and join a forward thinking social housing company who

is looking for a positive and dynamic person to join their high performing team.
Our client has been ranked in the top 50 in The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Not-for-

This exciting role has come up due to internal promotion. You’ll be working with 19 to
55 year olds, supporting them to overcome barriers they face in accessing education,
training and employment opportunities by delivering activities out in the community.
You’ll be travelling around Bath and surrounding areas working with partners and
recruiting customers to engage in the service, carrying out drop in sessions and running
a programme of activities.

Whilst you will be part of the Work Wise team, this role is very autonomous so you will
be encouraged to take control of your own workload and develop projects in line with the
funding requirements.

You will be confident working one to one or with small groups, delivering activities to
build confidence and self-esteem, teach and develop employability skills and support
people to participate in meaningful occupation. In addition to teaching budgeting and
life skills, the project aims to bring out the best in people through creativity, music and
outdoor activities.

You’ll have relevant training or teaching experience and the ability to deliver training to
vulnerable people, together with an understanding of education, training, employment
and supported housing or project based youth work.

You’ll be highly self-motivated and possess excellent communication and interpersonal
skills to enable you to liaise effectively with colleagues in the Work Wise team and
external agencies.

You will have a basic understanding of safeguarding for vulnerable adults and we will
build on this by increasing your knowledge.

At the same time you will demonstrate resilience and the desire to work in an interesting
environment where no day is ever the same!

Our client will need to take up an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Check for this role
which they will do for you when you start.
You will be able to work flexibly between Monday to Friday, based on customer needs.
You will be responsible for organizing your own workload and setting your diary

You’ll be based in Bath and the surrounding areas, out and about in the community so
you will need to be able to travel.

What will you get in return?

We think you’ll have a job that makes you feel good about what you’re doing – you will
make a difference to customers’ lives every day.
You’ll get:
● Additional day annual leave on your birthday
● 26 days annual leave per year (plus bank holidays) rising to 29 after 3 years’
● Opportunity to earn additional performance related pay
● Company Pension contribution of up to 10%
