Getting People Into Work. For Good.

As a recruitment and training company that meets the needs of employers looking to recruit and train their staff, our Client supports individuals who are looking for work or need advice, guidance and training. All of their provisions benefit a diverse range of customers, supporting them to overcome barriers, develop new skills, find sustainable employment, and make truly beneficial changes to their lives.

Working with participants on the DWP/ESF contract, their Key Workers provide support for participants who are facing a number of complex barriers to employment with a view to moving these customers through positive outcomes and into sustainable work. They have two opportunities available, one based in Stafford and the second based in Burton.

Delivering specific one to one mentoring support and group sessions, you will work with participants who are unemployed and need considerable support, encouragement and practical help to get them back into work; marketing the provision to Jobcentre Plus and other local agencies in your area to bring new participants on to the programme.

Ensuring you recruit your targeted number of new participants onto the programme each month, you must complete a detailed and comprehensive initial assessment with new participants and implement a detailed SMART action plan which adheres to all contract quality and compliance guidelines.

Candidates will ideally have some experience relating to employability or mentoring but this is not essential. They are happy to consider individuals who are looking to take their career in a new direction and can demonstrate the skills, drive and motivation required to flourish in this role. With that in mind, if you are highly organised, focused and are capable of building strong relationships at all levels, we would love to hear from you.
