Job Coach Hours: 37.5 per week Salary: £20,300 rising to £22,138 after training
Supporting people into work is extremely rewarding and we are looking for people who can rise to the challenges of this job. Job coaches work with a job seeker from the start of the supported employment process to the time when they are successfully embedded in the job and working independently. This interesting and varied role therefore provides support to both job seekers and employers.
The work covers a wide variety of activities including:
Discovery and Vocational profiling
Working with families
Delivery of training programmes (on-line and face to face)
Claiming Access to Work
We understand that few people will join us with previous experience of employment support work, so Sixteen has a comprehensive Job Coach Development Programme to train new members of staff in the principles and practices of supported employment. This represents an outstanding opportunity to receive mentoring, training and support.
New job coaches are enrolled on this training programme after successfully completing their three month probation review. The programme typically lasts about a year and leads to Band 2 job coach status and a salary increase. We also recognise the importance of continued professional development for all team members, so support and training continues and will include access to a formal job coaching qualification.
