Full Time
Helping people with disabilities secure work is a great job – would you agree?  If you would like to join a charity that engages employers to talk to them about the benefits of employing this under-represented candidate pool, essentially providing them a cost free introduction service, you would probably end each day on a positive note – knowing you are doing a pretty good thing.

The charity are delivering a specialist government contract that helps people with a range of support needs, from mental health, to physical support needs.  The job seekers work with a specialist employment support team, who work with them to tackle the barriers they face, until they are at the point of returning to work.  The challenge they face, is the that they have been unemployed for a period of time, or might need reasonable adjustments, or the right employer to find a job that fits.  Your role is to champion their cause, and bring on board employers by telling them about people like Ismail, who was out of work for 3 years and struggled with his learning disabilities and a hearing impairment, who with support, developed his communication skills and the team were able to secure him a role with his employer so he could use his abilities with confidence working in a busy administration
role – which has really turned his life around and helped the employer gain a top performing staff member.

This is a 3 month contract initially until the end of September, however it could extend.  The salary ranges from £23,000 – £27, 686 depending on experience.  Although you are not technically selling anything, as this is a free service to employers – they do need someone with a strong b2b sales background.  Ideally, within welfare to work.  Other B2B sales experience in recruitment or apprenticeships could also be a good fit.  Please apply via this advert, or if you would like to find out more please call the office and ask for Lawrence.  If you have applied and have not heard back, please email the Hello email address (phone number and email address on the Red 5 Solutions website).
