We’re Hiring: 1 x Progression Coach
We are looking for a supportive and motivating Progression Coach to join our established and respected Step Up project at Volunteer Centre Hackney and help people with mental health issues and other support needs progress towards their goals. These can include volunteering, training or paid employment.
Step Up has been running successfully in Hackney since 2015 and works in partnership with statutory and voluntary mental health services.
Through workshops, training and individual support, people are supported to gain confidence, vocational skills and resilience with a reduction in social isolation. We conduct careful assessments of each person’s needs and interests, to create pesonalised journey plans that include interesting and relevant volunteering placements.
We are seeking a candidate who has a real understanding of the barriers faced by people who have extensive mental health support needs, and by people who may have never worked in a paid role, to progress towards life goals. You must be very well practiced in delivering support to people with complex needs, be motivating and encouraging and able to work with partner organisations to ensure that people are placed into a safe and supportive environment.
Salary: £28,000 per annum pro rata
Hours: 3 or 4 days/week – subject to discussion with the successful candidate
