This is no ordinary support or link worker role, instead, as a
Personal Transitions Service (PTS) Network Coach, you will:

- Unleash your inner activist and contribute to challenging and changing systems around homelessness, substance use, social care, mental health and criminal justice.
- Share your grassroots experience influencing others across the UK.
About this organisation
This is a charity with a network of passionate social activists working to bring about systemic change, whilst offering people going through tough times such as homelessness, leaving care, coming out of prison or experiencing emotional trauma, person-led and strength-based support through its Personal Transitions Service (PTS) Response.
They are looking for someone who believes in people; a person who is comfortable walking alongside someone to identify and overcome barriers, to connect people with a positive community network and friendships, build on their strengths and achieve the future they want.
This is an opportunity for someone who understands that in the world today, the problem is not people with ‘complex needs’ but a broken system. A system that is failing to treat people as people. A system that traps and institutionalises people.
This role is not for the faint-hearted, it is for someone with a passion for social justice, and the energy and determination to make systems work for people going through tough times.
*This organisation is excited to be recruiting for five roles, three working across Northamptonshire with supported accommodation provider Changing Lives and two focused in East Northants working with SPRING Impact.
Applications close: 5.00pm Friday 23rd April
