Job Coach (my AFK)

Salary: £25,000 - £27,500
Post: Maternity cover
Location: Hornsey, London N8 9DJ

my AFK (formally Action For Kids) is a national charity working with disabled children and young people. We provide specialist mobility equipment not available on the NHS. We also work with young people with learning disabilities and special education needs from the age of 14 to 25, to help them prepare for and gain paid employment. We have a team of tutors, job coaches and employment brokers who work with the young people, their families, teachers and employers.

We want to recruit a Job Coach to join our experienced and committed Service Delivery team. The role will involve working with individuals, assessing their employability skills; liaising with employers and brokering new opportunities for supported employment, volunteering and work placements; and providing specialist one to one coaching to enable young people to progress towards their own goals and objectives.

You will have extensive experience of working with disabled young people and understand the barriers that often prevent them from getting a job. You will have a successful track record of supporting disabled people into employment and be passionate about their right to live the life they want. Your energy and commitment will enable you to play a key part in realising this aspiration. 

Closing Date for receipt of a completed Application Form: Monday 28th January

Interviews to be held on Tuesday 12th February.
