|Circle Collective was created to help unemployed young people acquire and develop the workplace skills, confidence, positive mindset and self-discipline needed to secure life-changing permanent employment. So far we have got over 170 young people into jobs. An innovative social enterprise and registered charity, which was founded in September 2010 by Turly Humphreys.
What is the job purpose?
This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic individual to help drive the expansion of our successful ‘Get Employed’ training programme. The programme has already helped more than 200 young people into work and we are looking for a training coordinator who can play a key part in scaling up our operation and supporting more and more young people to change their lives.
You will be joining a friendly, professional and business-focused charity that is wholly committed to providing the very best for young people, and ensuring we at all times exemplify our values of passion, enrichment, respect, community and results.
You will be passionate about supporting unemployed young people to develop the skills they need to secure life-changing permanent employment.
You will be responsible for the design, development and implementation of interactive and fun sessions across our ‘Get Employed’ programme. We have a growing partnership with a large local college and deliver the programme according to their awarding body and funding standards. The role will include coordinating and teaching workshop-style sessions in employability, customer services and work preparation, as well as coordinating volunteers and external partners to deliver some of the work shops and support our trainees in ‘job club’ sessions.
Being confident in working with professional corporate partners and coordinating volunteers and external trainers to deliver work shops and sessions to a high standard is essential. You will have the opportunity to take ownership of the delivery of the programme, so you must be a self-starter with the ability to manage and monitor your workload.
As a small, fast-paced company everyone gets involved in all elements of the charity and social enterprise, so you must be able to balance competing priorities and be invested in our social mission.
You must also have excellent communication and organisational skills, enabling you to effectively engage with young people not in education, employment or training.
Experience of the education, training or charity sector is essential as well as managing staff, volunteers and/or external partners.
