  • Delivering dynamic personal development and career management courses to groups;
  • Meeting required contractual performance targets.
  • For the Skills & Development Adviser role, you should be able to demonstrate:

  • Ability to achieve targets and meet deadlines;
  • A flexible approach to working hours.
  • Whilst we would be keen to receive applications from candidates who have previous experience working with young people or unemployed adults, applications would also be welcomed from those with transferable skills willing to undertake training to pursue a career in this sector. In addition, whilst not essential for delivery of all contracts, applications would be particularly welcome from practitioners qualified to level 4 or level 6 in careers information, advice and guidance.
