Details of Role: 

We are excited to be recruiting a new person to join our small but brilliant Education, Employment and Training (EET) team. This new role will support a brand new 2-year project that is all about helping homeless young people into good quality sustained employment. The work will involve providing employability skills training including preparing people to manage changing finances as they transition to employment. There is also a focus on work with employers to help them support young people into their organisations.

Please find full details of how to apply via our website in the advert below. The deadline for application submissions is 23:59, 15 March 2024.

We are striving to better represent the young people we support and therefore are particularly keen to increase applications from minoritized ethnic groups and male candidates as they are currently under-represented in our organisation. We also encourage applications from people with relevant lived experience. 

If you need an adjustment to be made to any part of the recruitment process, please let us know as soon as possible. 

Who are we?
We are a leading youth homelessness charity based in the Southwest, working with over 1,500 young people. At 1625ip we are driven by social justice and passion: we strive to do something that matters and take pride in seeing the results of our work in social outcomes and improving young people’s lives.

What you will be doing:

  • Using your strong networking and relationship building skills, you will source and support a caseload of young people into good quality jobs.
  •  Tapping into your coaching, mentoring and communication skills, you will prepare young people for the workplace.
  • By actively engaging with potential employers, you will source opportunities with those keen to employ young people we work with. 
  • Being creative, you will develop resources and training for employers who want to recruit these young people.
  • By actively listening and communicating, you will gather feedback from all project participants.

You will be in the Participation and Learning (PaL) Team and your line manager will be our Participation and Learning Manager.

At 1625ip we are led by our Competency Development Framework. This connects our values to our behaviours in everything we do and gives us the tools to develop. The framework ensures our recruitment is better informed, applications and interviews are behaviourally based and job profiles are developed on the ‘how’ of a job. 

If you have transferrable skills and you are interested in this role, but you are worried about the application process, please get in touch with us. We encourage you to have an informal chat with the recruiting manager to discuss how your personal or professional experience and skills could be transferred to this role. Details of how you can do that are further down in this advert.
