You will be joining a supportive national charity who have won awards for being a great employer (Investors in People / ‘Best Companies’ award). You will get autonomy to manage your own day. And will be delivering a community development programme that helps ex-offenders get back into employment.
You will be working out of a probation centre and will receive referrals from an employment support advisor, who has progressed them, to a point of being ‘job ready’. You will be tasked with building up a network of local employers into the area, and talking to them about the benefits of helping ex-offenders into work (there are loads) and at no cost (so you will be delivering the work of an agency, but with a pure ethics focus and no cost to the employer – win win).
You will be comfortable getting on the phone to a local employer you have not spoken to before. And will enjoy one to one coaching and mentoring as you help your clients apply for their own roles. As well as interview prep, helping to write support statement and general employment support coaching.

Please note the salary scale for the role is £22, 913 – £27, 963 (everyone starts on £22, 913 but once established in the role there is room to progress up the scales based on performance).
