ABOUT THE ROLE

Are you passionate about helping people to turn their lives around? Are you a confident people person with the energy and drive to make a real difference? If so, you might be the person we’re looking for to join our small, friendly team of Employment Advisors.

Working Chance is a unique, award-winning charity helping women with convictions - many of whom have been in prison - to find a job they can thrive in. The Employment Advisors help our clients to find work that fits their skills and aspirations and that enables them build the life they want. You will do this either by advising them on their own job search and applications, or by supporting them to apply for roles with particular employers we have relationships with.

The ideal candidate will be warm and highly empathetic with fantastic people skills, able to quickly build rapport. You’ll need personal credibility and confidence to liaise with employers about vacancies they need to fill, and excellent English literacy skills are essential so that you can help clients to produce high quality CVs and supporting statements.

Previous experience of supporting people into employment, perhaps gained in an employment service or as a recruitment consultant, is a must. Experience of working with people who have faced adversity and complex challenges would be an asset.

To apply, please send a CV and a supporting statement of no more than two sides of A4 telling us exactly why you’re the right person for the job to jobs@workingchance.org by 10am, Monday 8th November, putting Employment Advisor in the subject line of your email.
