Are you eligible?

We're looking for someone with a track record of supporting individuals to move them closer to employment or education. The role will combine project delivery and project development offering an exciting role. Alongside developing partnerships with local business and NTFC to place participants in meaningful work experience opportunities, you'll also get involved in the delivery of the employability and traineeship programmes too. The post holder will need to be flexible in their way of working to adapt and support the varying needs of learners, many of which would be defined as 'hard to engage'. We are looking for someone who is passionate about making a positive difference within the local community and to the lives of young people. This is not a 9-5 job and the participants you work with at times will be challenging, however the impact you can make can be life changing for them and extremely rewarding for you. Experience working within the education sector is advantageous but not essential.
