This is an exciting opportunity to join Walsall Council’s Impact Project and 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, supporting them 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 different 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 (beneficiaries) registered with the Impact Project, 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.
Advisers work with and advise opportunity providers and other relevant bodies to ensure that local provision is informed of the requirements of beneficiaries. You will be required to network with other professionals/advisers to understand their services and role in supporting beneficiaries and to develop appropriate links.
You will be responsible for the development of own performance, maintaining up-to-date knowledge of relevant services, active engagement strategy and tools to contribute to ongoing professional development.
