Full Time
A national charity need you to help unemployed job seekers explore the option of setting up their own business or to go self-employed. If coaching and mentoring, and getting the best out of people is your thing, this could be a good move. The charity have won awards for being a great place to work, with an emphasis on work-life balance (28 days annual leave plus bank hols).

The caveat is they need people that have specifically done this role before on a government funded project, such as New Enterprise Allowance or similar. Or an Employment Advisor that has helped their customers move into self-employment whilst making the benefit system / universal credit work for them. A typical week will involve working out of job centres and promoting the concept of self-employment. You will work with your clients to create business plans, cash flow forecasts and understand personal budgeting. Then help them with the practicalities to launching their businesses, and connecting them to specialist business coaches within their industry.

This position is a floating role, and the ideal candidate will be 60% of the time focussed in their local area which is flexible, but ideally around East London, Essex or the Kent / Essex border so that you can provide support as required accross Kent, Essex, Beds, Herts and London (envisaged to be 40% of the time).

Employment Advisors, Business Start Up Coaches or people in similar roles would be a really good fit. If you are an Employment Advisor, typically you might have worked on work programme, and would have activley been involved (to some extent) with helping people go self-employed, as opposed to referring them through to the specialist employment advisor that deals with this area in the office. Please apply via this advert. If you have applied and not heard back, or would like to find out more, please call the office and ask for James, or email the hello email address (contact number / email on the Red 5 Solutions website).
