Building Better Opportunities Project
Would you like to make a difference to the local community? Are you passionate about employment opportunities for all? Would you like to be involved in an exciting community program working across East Berkshire? If the answer is yes this could be the role for you. Building Better Opportunities is a new partnership funded through the European Social Fund and The Big Lottery Fund, bringing together local voluntary and community organisations that have specialist knowledge, work with disadvantaged neighbourhoods and communities, and are trusted by individuals. Embedding the supported employment model into the program will enable a holistic approach for individuals and targeted employer engagement activity, to provide real benefits to people facing multiple disadvantages.
You will oversee the whole project working for Slough Borough Council and in partnership with a number of private and community/voluntary sector organisations. We are looking for someone with excellent communication and customer service skills to develop and deliver an exciting new project that focuses on job coaching, training and employment support to people with multiple disadvantages, who are not employed and are aged 25 and over. You will need to have experience in managing a multi-agency project with the ability to communicate, negotiate and motivate partners to maximise the impact of the project. You will also have experience in audit and compliance and in particular working with European Social Fund and Big Lottery Fund guidelines and reporting systems.
We are looking for a number of people to fill various roles as part of this project.
Closing date: 5pm Tuesday 29th August
Interviews will take place week commencing 11th September 2017.
