We are looking for two enthusiastic and committed Job coaches who will work alongside young people in Foundation learning (young people working at entry level or with SEND) in the workplace to support them in developing the skills they need to work independently.

The role of the Job Coach will be to ensure that each young person on placement has access to highquality job coaching support, thus enabling them to learn the required skills and secure paid employment at the end of the programme. Additionally, the Job Coach will be responsible for securing placements, on the programme, suited to the requirements of each intern. The Job Coach will also be responsible for facilitating and developing excellent working relationships with colleagues and partners onsite, including local employers, to broker job opportunities for the client group.

Who You Are:

As the College supports a number of children and vulnerable adults, all staff are exempt from Section 4(2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Accordingly, all staff will be subject to an 'Enhanced' DBS (formerly CRB) check, along with a Children's Barred List check if in regulated activity. Any offers of appointment may be withdrawn if these checks prove to be unsatisfactory to the College. Self-disclosure will be required as part of the recruitment process. If you fail to make a full disclosure or provide sight of your DBS certificate then your offer of employment is likely to be withdrawn. The College's DBS policy covers the recruitment of ex-offenders which is available upon request.

New City College aims to develop a workforce that reflects the diverse community we serve and actively welcome applications from candidates from a BAME background.
