SECTION: Employment & Skills Team

This is an exciting opportunity to join Walsall Council to provide young people and adults with training and employment to ensure they get the best start to their working lives.

The role is funded through the new Black Country Impact programme which addresses the barriers faced by unemployed individuals aged 16-29 years.  It supports beneficiaries to secure positive outcomes including employment, apprenticeships, training and further education. Impact’s individualised approach and alternative delivery structures provides flexible personalised learning and support that addresses the range of personal and skills needs of young adults.

We are looking for an experienced professional to provide advice, guidance and information to young people and adults registered with the Impact programme, in need of targeted support on learning, work and personal development opportunities and support to access these.  You will be expected to manage a caseload of beneficiaries, which includes recording information on progress and monitoring outcomes to ensure progression. You will be required to comply with BC Impact programmes policies and procedures.

You will be required to network with other professionals and advisers to understand their services and role in supporting beneficiaries and to develop appropriate links.

You will be responsible for the development of your own performance, maintaining up-to-date knowledge of relevant services, active engagement strategy and tools to contribute to ongoing professional development.

For an informal discussion please contact Kirit Patel, Senior CIAG Advisor on 07341 868091 or Matthew Lloyd – Employment and Skills Officer on 07385 424323.

Walsall Council takes seriously the responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all the children, young people and vulnerable adults entrusted to our care and it is our expectation that all staff will share this commitment. We will ensure continuous development and improvement of robust recruitment processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our workforce. Completion of an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check is a requirement for working with vulnerable adults.  

Note: Applicants appointed to posts that require an enhanced DBS clearance must declare any periods of time that they have lived, studied or worked abroad and be prepared to provide an Overseas Criminal Records Certificate (OCRC) or a Statement of Good Conduct (SOGC) relating to anytime they were overseas.
