Work with us


We are looking for a dynamic and engaging Job Coach to join our team at Volunteer Centre Hackney and help people with mental health issues and other high support needs into paid employment.

Our Step Up project has been successfully supporting City and Hackney residents into volunteering and paid employment for four years, and are recognised as a key provider in people’s recovery journey and as a key partner by all of City and Hackney’s mental health services.

We provide a whole suite of provision to support people into employment, including employability workshops, training and individual support, to support people to gain confidence, motivation and new skills, as well as introduce them to new friends.

We are seeking a candidate who has a real understanding of the barriers faced by people who have extensive mental health support needs, and who may have never worked in a paid role, to progress towards life goals; and who is equally happy with both providing group support via workshops, as they are providing individual 1:1 support.
