With funding from Nationwide Community Grants, Tyne is pleased to announce this exciting opportunity to work with our residents and visitors to improve their access to training, volunteering and employment.
The post is currently funded for one year, but we will be looking toward securing additional funding after this period.
Since 1973 we have been providing housing and support to some of the most vulnerable individuals across the Tyneside area.
Many of our residents and visitors have experienced homelessness. Many have offending backgrounds, issues with addiction, and diagnosed and undiagnosed mental health problems. Most of them are still trying to process traumas and bad experiences in their lives which have led them to where they are now.
We are determined to get them to a better place. Our housing offer provides safety and security and our support gives them an opportunity to look forward, for the first time in their lives, but many of them are still a long way from being able to take up an active role in the world of training, volunteering and, crucially, work.
This role seeks to address this. You will work closely with Tyne visitors and residents to identify and overcome the barriers that may prevent them from taking up opportunities in training, volunteering or work.
You’ll work closely with employers to provide opportunities for your clients, with training providers to seek out the best and most appropriate courses, with charities and other groups to seek out chances for them to volunteer and learn new skills and experiences.
You will also be designing and delivering Employability Courses to teach people the basics of applying for jobs, filling out a CV or application form, attending an interview etc.
Additionally, there will be specialist, one on one support for residents around general help with employability, volunteering and training, as well as some targeted work with the 13 residents we currently have living in our move-on accommodation.
