Life Skills, Independence and Employability Coach

Helping you to live your best life Active Tameside is a registered charity. We’re here to inspire the people of Tameside into living healthier, happier and more active lives. We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and energetic life skills, independence and employment coach to become part of our Everybody Can service, specifically within our employment and youth intervention provision.

The Tameside Youth Employment Scheme aims to give young people leaving care the opportunity to develop employability skills within a real-life working environment. The day-to-day tasks will include mentoring, support, training, guidance, team work, good record keeping and the ability to make decisions to support young people. The role will require patience, understanding and adaptability to meet individual needs and ensure that we have a person-centred approach.

The role holder will be responsible for the support of young people with additional needs who can display challenging behaviours and have grown up in the care system. We will expect this person to deliver with a person-centred approach, looking at the holistic development of individuals whilst providing an inspiring experience that engages all.

The post holder will also be accountable for implementing quality sessions ensuring good order and discipline in accordance with Active Tameside policies. In return, we can offer you the opportunity to play a major role in the provision of an excellent service. Ongoing training and development will be provided.

Active Tameside is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and it is expected that all applicants will share this commitment. DBS checks will be carried out on successful candidates subject to post requirement.
