Job Details:

We have an exciting opportunity for a Job Mentor Team Leader to manage our team of Job Mentors, leading the team to achieve the best outcomes for each individual student. 

Job Mentors enable learners to meet their outcomes of securing paid employment and/or voluntary work on leaving college through work placements.  They also work with learners through work experience placements, enabling individuals to transfer skills into a work environment.  

You will work with learners to assess skills and aspirations related to employment to ensure work placements are sustainable and meet the needs of individuals. You will liaise with local employers to secure work placements and job opportunities, and support leaners to develop work skills in a range of industry settings.  The role will require you to job carve, work with Systematic Instruction Training and other employability models to enhance skill development.  The ability to network and liaise effectively with employer partners is essential.

The role is term time plus additional weeks in the holiday periods on a rota basis to ensure support is maintained for students.
